Suzi Wallace – Office Manager

I feel very fortunate to be part of the team at Mallard Creek Family Dentistry.  I enjoy interacting with patients and strive to make everyone’s visit nothing less than the best. I started my dental career as a dental assistant and have been working in dentistry for many years.   My favorite part about working at Mallard Creek is seeing patients restore their smiles for a lifetime.

I am married to Rob and we have two grown children.  Outside of the office, I enjoy exercising, taking long walks on the beach, playing with my grand dog Benji, and watching football. Go Dolphins!

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 son Josh and family, cooking, and recently began furniture restorations.  If I could ever make it to a gym and get myself conditioned, I would love to join one of my co-workers Dragon Boating Team!!

Patti – Insurance Coordinator

Hello, my name is Patti. I have been with Mallard Creek Family Dentistry since 2006 as Insurance Coordinator. I am able to utilize my 13 years of dental experience and my education from Fox Business College to help exceed our patients’ expectations every day. I love that the relationships we form with our patients are truly sincere!

My family is so important to me.  My oldest daughter is currently a nursing major in college and my youngest started college this year.  I am so proud of their accomplishments. In my free time I like to read, hang out with my girls and margaritas!


Dawn – Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Dawn. I attended Central Piedmont in Charlotte and graduated in 2004 with National Board Certification. I joined the team at Mallard Creek Family Dentistry in 2009 as a Dental Assistant and have been an Assistant for 10 years. I think MCFD is a fun place to work. The Doctors and Staff truly care about their patients.

I enjoy spending time with my husband our 10 year old and 6 year old daughters.  My girls are active participants in dance classes, Clogging, and Gymnastics.  I also love traveling with my family.

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 3 dogs Buddy, June Bug and Woody.

Amy -Registered Dental Hygienist

Hi, my name is Amy. I joined Mallard Creek Family Dentistry in early 2018. I graduated Catawba Valley Community College with a degree in Dental Hygiene in 2008. I spent my early career filling in at various offices around the Charlotte area. I now have found my home. I am perfecting my skills the MCFD way. I am honored to be a part of such an amazing group. I look forward to getting to know all of our wonderful patients.

In my free time I take advantage of every moment with my perfect family. I have a husband of 11 years and 2 small children. I live in a house full of boys, but wouldn’t have it any other way. They are my world and reason for everything. Both my boys love the water. We are in swim class year round and at the pool almost every weekend in the summer. I enjoy traveling and seeing new places. To me, experiences are far more valuable than things.
