Meet our team

Emily – Dental Assistant

 

Hi! I’m Emily. I am originally from New York, but moved down to South Carolina a few years ago. I went to assisting school at Trident Technical College and have been with Dr. Randy since I graduated in August 2020! My favorite part of working with Dr. Randy is getting to see all the kids smiling faces when they come in! In my free time I enjoy spending time outside with my dog.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Denisha – Dental Assistant

 

Denisha has been such a great addition to our team with many years of dental experience! She’s a Charleston native and graduated from Trident Technical College as a Expanded Duty Dental Assistant in 2012. She really works hard at ensuring that patients are comfortable in the dental chair and instructs patients on proper dental hygiene. She loves helping children have healthier smiles. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her siblings and being a fun/loving “aunty”, staying active, and traveling.

 

 

 

 

Carlie – Dental Hygienist

 

I’m Carlie! I was raised in Charleston. I graduated from Trident Technical College in 2016 with my degree in Dental Hygiene. I’ve been with Dr. Randy since November 2016, shortly after graduating. I love working for Dr. Randy. Pediatric dentistry has my heart! It’s rewarding teaching kids how to take care of their teeth and that the dentist can be a fun place! In addition to my position as a Hygienist, I lead the marketing for the office. I’m usually the one behind the social media posts, the contests, and the events!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sarah – Dental Hygienist

 

Hi, I’m Sarah! I studied Dental Hygiene at the Medical College of Georgia; I graduated Magna Cum Laude. I have an MBA in Healthcare Management. I worked as a Dental Assistant and Pharmacy Technician before hygiene school and I’ve recently joined the Air Force Reserves!

 

I have been with Dr. Randy for 3 years. My favorite part about my job is seeing frenectomy patients; it is so amazing to be able to hear all the pains/problems the mom/baby is experiencing and be able to assist in fixing that problem. When they come back in two weeks for a follow-up and they are so happy, it’s so rewarding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Terry – Front Desk

 

Hi, I'm Terry and I joined Dr. Randy's team in October 2017.  I LOVE my job at the front desk.  I have been in dentistry for almost 20 years but this was my first chance to work with kids.  Some of my favorite things about working at Dr. Randy's are the smiles on these little faces when they get stickers, tattoos and pencils.  I also love the excitement they have as they leave after having a wonderful experience.   I have found my "forever" job and love the amazing ladies I get to work side by side with everyday.  In my spare time I enjoy thrifting, planting flowers and hanging out with my son, Jacob and our 2 dogs, Bentley & Max.

 

 

 

 

Mesha – Front Desk

 

Hello, my name is Mesha and I have been with Dr. Randy's office since 2019.  I was new to dentistry when I came to Dr. Randy's office and have learned so much since then.   I enjoy interacting with patients and helping them feel comfortable and excited about their visit.  When I'm not at Dr. Randy's, I love spending time with my family.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Brooke – Dental Hygienist

 

Hello, my name is Brooke and I’m a Charleston native.  I started work in the dental field in 2015 when I graduated summa cum laude with a Dental Hygiene degree. It is my goal as a hygienist to make sure that each experience is fun and positive! I love what I do, and I try to use that passion to teach and motivate my patients.  I strive to help them and their parents understand the essentials for building good dental health that will last a lifetime! In my free time, I enjoy cooking, painting, reading, traveling, spending time with family, friends, and my two sweet pups.
