Suzette – Dental Assistant
Hi, my name is Suzette. I became a Dental Assistant in 1982. Since joining Mallard Creek Family Dentistry in 1998, I have been happy to use my previous experiences. It has been extremely helpful to have a background in oral surgery, implant restorations and an education in the arts when it comes to more complex cosmetic and functional cases. MCFD is not a job, it is a family! It is great to be involved with up-to-date restorative and cosmetic procedures.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I am preparing for my son to graduate from UNCC.

Wende – Hygiene Coordinator
My name is Wende, and I was excited to join the team in early 2014 after years of working right next door and getting to know the staff and doctors as a referring office. I graduated from the dental assisting program at CPCC in 1998. I spent 2 years assisting in general dentistry before making the big change to orthodontics. I worked in the land of brackets and wires for 14 years assisting the doctor and eventually transitioning to the administrative side. I have found my place a the front desk where I get to enjoy my work day laughing with patients and my co-pilots, Julie and Patti.
I grew up less than 5 miles from the office and love seeing classmates, neighbors, and former orthodontic patients when then come in for their appointments.
When I am not working, I enjoy weekend getaways to the beach or the mountains, shopping for bargains, and my 4 dogs Dixie, Buddy, June Bug and Reba.
