Esther - Registered Dental Hygienist
A native Georgian, I grew up in the beautiful mountains of north Georgia. I began my dental career in 2004 when I received my Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene with recognition awards from Sigma Phi Alpha National Dental Hygiene Honor Society and membership acceptance in Phi Theta Kappa. Since then, I have worked as a hygienist in general and cosmetic dentistry in the marietta area. I love seeing people as individuals and finding ways to improve their teeth, gums, and overall health while making their smile outstanding. Non-professionally, I enjoy various hobbies from photography to organic coffee roasting, and time with family.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy taking fun and informative continuing education courses. I usually double the amount required by law to maintain my license.

I moved to Atlanta in 2014 and have been with Atlanta Smiles and Wellness since early 2017. I have one adult son and a black lab named Abraham. I love running, gardening and baking.
Michelle - Certified Dental Assistant
Started as a Californian to now a Georgian, I have worked in the dental field since 2002. I really enjoy being able to make a difference in someone’s life. When you see that enormous smile on a patient’s face because you had the opportunity to participate in providing excellent dental care, and creating comfort to a patient is the greatest reward in life.
I take pride in knowing I helped transform the most anxious, nervous, apprehensive, and fearful patients into patients that look forward to dental visits and laugh with us in the chair.
I often joke that I spend more time at work than I do at home and feel work colleagues should be like family. I can honestly say I work with the most talented, humorous, humbled, and most caring group of girls here at Atlanta Smiles and Wellness.
I am a Dog Mom to 2 beautiful Yorkie’s Pearl and Porscha. I always said if I won the lottery, I would buy a Yorkie farm and rescue every dog in the world!!! Any spare time I get I enjoy walking the Yorkies, working out, and Kayaking.
