The Team

Judy Hathaway - Financial Coordinator

I've worked with Dr. Jackson for almost 18 years as his administrative assistant. During that time I realized how important it is for a team to work together as well as we do. it starts from the top to have a great team and we are a great team. I am the first person new patients see or speak with. I make them feel comfortable when setting up appointment and consults. Our goal as a team is to make our patients healthier and happier.



Tatyana Lyubezhanina - Surgical Assistant/Phlebotomist

Thirteen years ago I came to this practice as a dental assistant. I found that in all those years it was a pleasure to work with nice people. I am proud to be a part of a team that's helping patients have good oral health and a beautiful smile.




Caitlin Martin - Surgical Assistant

Working for the past 5 years with Dr. Jackson as a dental assistant has been wonderful. The best part of my job is seeing the transformation patients go through when they come here. People come in with real dental problems. And when they leave the cannot wait to eat whatever they want and even smile again!




LeeAnn Klotz - Surgical Assistant/Phlebotomist

The most exciting part about my job is the patients, I love the looks on the patient's faces after procedures are complete and they are finally happy with their smile. I talk to patients about their care after procedures and their comfort in our office. Your comfort in our office is important to us. We take pride in what we do as a team, and you won't be disappointed. I have worked with Dr. Jackson and the team for almost 7 months. Being the new girl around here I was nervous to come into a new job not knowing anyone, but they are all very welcoming and make you feel like you are right at home. We hope to see you in our office!
