Meet the Team


Administrators

Anna

I am the office manager here at Cherry Hill Dental. What I love most about my job would be all of the positive interaction with our awesome patients! Living in a college town, we not only enjoy a strong base of patients, but also a flux of new people from all over the country. Everyone I meet has an interesting story to tell. I am also fortunate to be a part of an amazing group of people who strive to provide the best level of care for our patients.

My husband, William, and I have three wonderful children: Billy, Alexa, and Sasha, so there is never a dull moment in the household! We enjoy the parks, trails, and outdoor activities here in Missouri, and just spending time together.


Clint

I have a variety of responsibilities here at Cherry Hill Dental; along with being a Dental Hygienist, I am also the Clinical Administrator. I work closely with Dr. Tony in the management of our Invisalign Patients and ensuring patients leave with a perfect smile. I also work closely with Dr. Mary in our sleep medicine practice. With our sleep medicine I help the patient determine which appliance is best for them and help adjust the appliance until they have achieved the best sleep possible. As a hygienist I work with patients in the treatment and prevention of gum disease through preventive cleanings and oral health education. You may also see me floating around and assisting with restorative procedures to get patients numb or be a second set of hands when needed. I earned my Associate of Science in dental hygiene and a Bachelor of Science in nutrition and exercise physiology, so whole-body wellness plays a big role in my dental and sleep philosophy. One of the best things about our office is interacting with so many interesting people, and working with a team that is so fun and easy going.

I am married to my wife, Deborah, and have two sons, Fynnick and Kailo. In my free time, I enjoy weight training, playing disc golf, being outdoors, and family time.


Front Office


Debbie 

I am our billing specialist here at Cherry Hill Dental. My daily duties at the office include payroll, daily deposits, collections, and answering patients’ questions involving their bills. While I mostly interact with patients on the telephone, I always make sure to be friendly, compassionate, and patient. My favorite part of my job is helping people resolve their issues. I also enjoy working with the doctors and staff at Cherry Hill because they always make the patients their number-one priority and they’re very good at putting beautiful smiles on people’s faces.

Outside of the office, I have the best family a person could ask for. I live in Moberly with my husband, Rodney. I have a son named Chris who is a chiropractor in Littleton, Colorado, and lives there with his wife Brett, and son Koen. I also have a daughter named Whitney who lives in Olathe, Kansas with her husband, Adam, and their son, Layton. I enjoy working with people, gardening, and most importantly spoiling my grandchildren! I am very active with Family Life Fellowship church in my free time, and I am very strong with my faith in God.

I am a Patient Relations Coordinator here at Cherry Hill Dental. My favorite part of working here is meeting all the funny and unique patients that come through our doors, and providing the highest level of customer service. Columbia, MO has been home to me since I was born; and with recent expansions has become an increasingly great place to live. I love exploring the surrounding trails, new restaurants, and nearby wineries. Outside of work I enjoy running, cooking, traveling, and attending sporting events. During football season you can catch me cheering on the Chiefs and the Mizzou Tigers!

Hello my name is Katie, and I am a Patient Relations Coordinator here at Cherry Hill Dental.

I also appreciate spending time at my dad's shop detailing cars.


Laura

Laura 

I am one of the few people that says they love to deal with insurance companies, which works perfectly since I am also the Insurance Coordinator for Cherry Hill Dental. There is never a dull moment, and I love helping patients to better understand and maximize their benefits.

I have lived all over the US before planting roots in Columbia, where I have enjoyed being surrounded by family now for close to six years. When I'm not spending time with one of my three kids, or chasing after my adorable grand baby, I'm nose deep in a book.

I love sunsets, and feeding my coworkers chocolate covered raisins.


Makenzie 

I am a Patient Relations Coordinator here at Cherry Hill Dental. I recently graduated from the University of Central Florida and will be attending Dental School Fall of 2022. Working here has granted me new experiences and opportunities to appreciate and understand more about how an office runs efficiently. My favorite part of working at Cherry Hill Dental is seeing how happy our patients are after getting a cleaning or treatment done. Their smiles show gratitude for our profound professionalism and patient care.

In my free time, I enjoy taking my dog to the parks and trails, as well as spending time with family and friends!

I appreciate that the Cherry Hill Dental staff does their absolute best at making our patients feel welcome and leave with a better smile!

Outside of working at Cherry Hill Dental I enjoy spending time with my fiancé, whom I just became engaged with March 2021. We enjoy finishing, traveling, hiking, spending time with family and friends, sporting events, concerts (pre-covid) and spending quality time with each other. I have a step-daughter named Ky'Anna who is 14 and two pooches that I consider my children!

sara

I get to work with Dr. Tony on a daily basis using my Missouri extended schooling, and supervise the back office throughout the day, which includes sending out lab cases and whatever additional odd and ends that need to be done. I'm passionate about meeting new people every day, along with the opportunity to help them understand and become more acquainted with dental processes. For me, this is what makes Cherry Hill Dental such a fast-paced and rewarding practice to work at. Working along-side the best doctors and most insightful assistants affords great learning experiences on a daily basis. This translates into the highest level of customer care around.

Aside from my family at Cherry Hill Dental, I have a loving husband, Ryan, a boxer named Abby, and a Bengal cat, Kazha. I have a large family back in my home state of Wisconsin, and I love to visit them whenever possible. When I’m not helping people improve their smile and confidence, I enjoy cooking, motorcycle riding, jet skiing, and any outdoor activities that let me soak up as much sun as possible.


Sharon

Sharon

I am from Alabama...ROLL TIDE! I have made Columbia my home for the past five years. In my spare time, I enjoy creating memories with my 3 beautiful children and four dogs. I also enjoy traveling to small towns. My first experience with Cherry Hill Dental was as a patient. It was because of the special care and kindness shown to me as a patient that I became interested in joining the dental field. Later, I completed Cherry Hill's Dental Assisting program, and have loved it ever since.


Taylor

I started with Cherry Hill Dental as a patient in 2011 and became a part of the Cherry Hill family in May 2013. I enjoy getting to help people feel more confident about their smiles and improve their overall health. It is rewarding to see the transformation in patients’ oral health and to help them understand the importance of taking care of their teeth. I enjoy learning about the new dental technology and the advances our office provides with Invisalign.

I also love spending time with my daughter, family, and friends, and enjoy traveling to new places.


Steven

I’ve lived in Columbia for most of my life. I joined the Army in March 2000 and stayed for 15 years during which I became very accomplished: I deployed oversees three times. I moved back to Columbia in early 2015 to take a well-deserved sit on the couch for a summer. I got a job stocking shelves at Wal-Mart for a while, then my brother Dr. Tony Gadbois asked me to come aboard the Cherry Hill Dental train, and here I am! I wear a lot of different hats here at CHD; my job title is a Sterilization Technician, but I also handle the inventory and supply along with maintaining all of our equipment. I perform and participate in decontamination, cleaning, assembling, packaging, scanning, sterilization, storage, and distribution of reusable surgical instrumentation and equipment. Getting to work with my brother, his wife, and the staff I have come to know as family is one of the better experiences in a work atmosphere that I’ve had in a long time.

At home, I have a wife, three children, and three pets.

I have been working at Cherry Hill Dental as a dental assistant since August 2020 and I love it here! We have an amazing team of assistants who are super fun to work with and our patients are AWESOME! It is so rewarding to see people smile confidently again and become pain free. I wouldn't want to do anything else! When not working as an assistant, I enjoy running, taking my cat for walks, and crocheting.

I will be starting dental school in the fall and I can't describe how much working here has helped prepare me for school; and learning from the best doctors (and assistants) in the state isn't a bad way to start off a dental career!

I started at Cherry Hill in November of 2020 and I primarily work in the Lab and Sterilization, but I do occasionally assist. My daily responsibilities include cleaning and processing instruments, pouring impressions, making bleach trays and retainers, and helping the assistants in any way I can. Here at Cherry Hill, we work so hard to provide the best care to our many wonderful patients; I am so grateful to work at such an amazing place and be on a great team. In my free time, I enjoy visiting my parents on our family farm, fishing, riding horses, hunting, and spending time with my daughter.

I have spent the last five years learning the in and outs of dentistry thanks to Cherry Hill Dental; from my first classes in the Dental Assisting program they offer to working in multiple departments within this amazing practice. The doctors and team we have here inspire me to keep moving forward with good communication, team work and understanding of appointments from start to finish and perfecting our craft. Outside of work I spend time with my two year old daughter, Kamdyn, going on trail walks or car rides, and watching lots of cocomelon.

I started at Cherry Hill in August of 2020 with their ten-week dental assisting class and now I work as an ortho assistant. What I enjoy about working at Cherry Hill is how I get to see transformations (small or big) while helping our clients learn to love and take care of their smiles. While working at Cherry Hill I have learned a lot about the dental field and plan to pursue a career as a dentist in the future. Working at Cherry Hill has provided me with the opportunity of experiencing and having knowledge of things I will have for the rest of my life. Outside of work I am a student, love being outdoors, and spending time with friends and family!
