Meet the Gentle Dentist Team
Working closely with our patients, I get to learn about their lives beyond their oral health care needs. We talk with each other and find common ground and interests, developing real relationships with each other. I love that my work brings me into contact with such great people. I perform preventive services and maintenances, triage emergency dental patients, and provide periodontal treatments. During each visit, I talk with patients about their oral health and how to perform proper maintenance at home, to keep their mouths healthy and in an optimal state. Beyond the office, I am very busy. I deliver for Meals on Wheels and lead a Friday Morning Women’s Bible Study, as well as teach snowboarding at Bear Creek. My family and I, including my spouse Pat and children Quinn, Cassidy, Ryanna, and Sean, have a summer house on Perkiomen Creek and we spend a lot of time there.
I really enjoy the daily interaction I have with our patients. Learning about them and their lives, sharing stories and interests, makes my work day pass fast. Along the way there’s a lot of laughter, too, which is always a good thing. I perform dental prophylaxis, scaling and root planning, apply Fluoride treatments, perio charting, and I take X-rays. I am also licensed to administer local anesthesia. A lot of my day is spent one-on-one with patients, talking with them about home oral hygiene practices and how to keep their teeth and gums healthy between visits. On my days off, you’ll find me spending time with my niece and nephew, and playing with my dog, Rambo. I am married and I enjoy music, antiquing, and visiting historic sites.
I am so happy to be continuing my dental career back at the Gentle Dentist. This was where it all started over 20 years ago when I was an assistant here all while going to Dental Hygiene school. The fascinating thing is that so many of our patients are still here. I really enjoy seeing patients that I knew from many moons ago, and I am always delighted to meet the new smiles. With our very knowledgeable, compassionate team, work really never seems like work. It’s a feel good type of environment that I am honored to be a part of. Like any other dental hygienist, I am here to provide comprehensive care but most importantly I want to make sure the experience is positive. As a patient relaxing in my chair, I want to ensure you feel comfortable, cared for, and fully trust that you are in the best hands. When not working I enjoy to spend time with my two boys, Travis and Carson – usually cheering them on in one of their ice hockey games! Kingston my precious pit bull mix pup definitely loves to spend countless hours out and about in the sunshine so don’t be surprised if you see us around town.
Clinical Coordinator and Expanded Functions Dental Assistant
Interacting with our patients, while educating them about dental care and good oral hygiene practices, is very enjoyable to me. I like that our doctors and our team members are so passionate about providing excellent oral health care, and that there is always an emphasis on preventing problems before they develop. I wear two hats at our office: as the Clinical Coordinator, I am responsible for organizing and overseeing the day to day operations of the office and staff. As an Expanded Function Dental Assistant, I place and contour composite and other restorative materials, place sealants, and polishing teeth. In my free time outside work, I like to be with my husband, Kyle, and sons, Brody and Chase. I enjoy kayaking and hiking with my family.
I have been with the gentle dentist for close to 5 years now and I love being a part of such a great team!! My main job is the front desk receptionist and insurance coordinator. I take much pride in my job and enjoy the fact that I get to be the first person to greet and interact with the patients when they first walk through the door. When I’m not working with my dental family I enjoy relaxing and spending time at home with my husband and family.
My name is Kim. I currently reside in the Boyertown Area with my husband & two young children. I left a career in Real Estate to stay at home full-time but felt there was a balance missing. That is when I found the Gentle Dentist. The staff here is truly one-of-a-kind. They are kind & compassionate people and made me feel right at home. During my short time here as the Insurance Coordinator I have come to love the personal connection this office achieves with their patients. This welcome environment makes it a pleasure to come to work every day!
Hello, my name is Stacie. I have been working in the field of dentistry for 25 years. I was educated at Harcum College and Temple Dental School where I was trained as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant. As the years progressed I made my way to Reception and Scheduling. Being able to coordinate and serve in all aspects of my chosen field has proven to be powerfully rewarding. When I am not at the office sharing in good times either with my fellow staff or all of our patients that we love so much, you will find me hanging out with my three besties. That would be my 9 year old daughter and two beautiful kitties. Spending summers at the Jersey Shore and celebrating Halloween are also on my list of favorite things to do. I hope to continue to develop meaningful relationships not only with this wonderfully caring and highly educated and gifted group of souls, but also with our patients. See you at the office!
My first day of work at the Gentle Dentist was over 20 years ago, and not a day has gone by that I haven’t been thankful for the wonderful group of people with whom I work. I’ve been here so long, I feel like we’re all a part of each other’s family! My job includes making sure our hygiene department runs smoothly and swiftly, taking X-rays, making appointments, and whatever else my team needs to give our patients excellent care. I have been married to my husband, David, for 41 years. We have two daughters and two grandchildren. David and I love watching the Phillies and often attend Spring Training in Clearwater, FL.
Hello, I’m Roneisha, affectionately known as “Ronnie” around the office. I have been a part of the dental world for three years, and part of the Gentle Dentist family for almost a year, I love it. The best part of my job is helping nervous patients feel comfortable in the dental chair. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my two children, my fiancé, reading and writing.
I’ve been a dental assistant for twenty years and recently returned to the area after being on the west coast. I’m enjoying getting to know the patients here at The Gentle Dentist. My days off I enjoy staying home and relaxing or watching Netflix. Also have a slight obsession with exotic cats and just adopted my first bengal!
