Meet the Team

Brooke: Patient and Treatment Coordinator

“I have worked for Gastonia Family Dentistry since 2013. I enjoy meeting new people and getting to know our patients one on one. I have a little boy who has my heart, and I LOVE being a mommy. In my free time, we like to take weekend trips to the Georgia Mountains where we make memories with our family.”

Jill: Dental Assistant

“I have been a Dental Assistant at Gastonia Family Dentistry since 2010. I love my job and the great staff I get to work with daily. I enjoy getting to know my patients during their visits and will always strive to make them feel as comfortable as possible. It is very rewarding to be able to work with a team of doctors that provide the best dental care with the latest technology and really care about patient comfort. Originally from Western New York, I moved to the Carolinas in 1998 and now live in SC with my husband, Nik, and our 3 wonderful children. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, watching my kids play soccer, riding four wheelers and going to the beach as much as possible.”

Dana: Patient Coordinator

“As one of the newer members of Gastonia Family Dentistry, I can utilize my background in customer service. Knowing how important dental care is, I strive to meet each patient’s appointment needs. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 30 years and we have 3 beautiful daughters. We have a new addition to our family, a German Shepard puppy! I enjoy spending time with my family, working in my yard and lots of shopping!”

Shanda: Dental Assistant (CDA)

“I graduated with high honors, and I have been working in the dental field as a chairside assistant since 2011. I love having one on one time with my patients and educating them on dental and beauty related topics. I am a free spirit, love music and art, and am happy to work for a place that allows me to be who I am. We are all family here.”

Neleigh: Hygiene Assistant

“I graduated from Lake Norman Dental Assistant School. I am very outgoing and love helping to improve smiles and brightening people’s day. I am happily engaged to my best friend. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to the beach and taking care of my Yorkie, Mercedes. What I love most about Gastonia Family Dentistry is how after just a few short months they have become my second family.”

Amy: Dental Assistant (CDA)

“I am a certified Dental Assistant with over a decade of experience. I like to laugh and joke around. I love meeting new people and helping people achieve healthy, beautiful smiles.”

Wendy: Hygienist (RDH)

“I have been a hygienist for over 25 years, and I am currently in my fourth year at Gastonia Family Dentistry. I have been married for 23 years to my husband Steve. We have 3 children and were recently blessed with a beautiful grandson, Maddox. In my spare time I enjoy camping, football games and ATV racing with my family. I am passionate about rescuing dogs, and currently foster “fur babies” for an animal rescue in my hometown of Shelby, NC. The most rewarding part of my job is helping my patients feel confident about their smile.”

Ashley: Hygienist (RDH)

“I started my dental career in 2006 as a dental assistant. After 3 ½ years as a hygiene assistant, I discovered my heart was in dental hygiene. I graduated hygiene school in 2011 from Catawba Valley Community College. It makes my heart smile to know I’m helping our patients smile. When I’m not with my second family here at Gastonia Family Dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 3 years doing anything outdoors.”

Amanda: Insurance Coordinator

“I love being part of a practice that values patient care above all else. As your insurance coordinator, I am here to assist you through explaining and discussing your insurance benefits, and processing dental claims. I enjoy working with you on the financial aspects of your dental needs. Dr. Kingsbury and Dr. Pope pay great attention to every patient’s concerns and needs. We all work extremely well together to provide the best service for you. I was born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida. When I am not at work, I enjoy shopping, biking, hiking, and running.”

Kandace: Dental Assistant (CDA)

“I have been a dental assistant since 2014. I graduated from Central Piedmont College and I love my job. I love working with people and making them laugh. The reason I choose to work in the dental field is because you can change someone’s life with a smile. In my spare time, I like to spend time with my family and friends: shopping, on the lake, riding four wheelers, and going to church. In our office, our goal is to make you happy and comfortable. We play your favorite music on Pandora, and I love to sing, so you may catch me singing to you.”
