Meet the Team


Administrators

annaAnna R.

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 of more than a dozen years, William, and I have three wonderful children: Billy, Alexa, and Sasha. Since I’m a California girl, there is never a dull moment in the Ramm household! We enjoy the parks, trails, and outdoor activities here in Missouri, and just spending time together.


Keith M.

As our chief operating officer, my responsibilities include overseeing accounting, IT, marketing, employee benefits, and general business operations of our practice. I’ve always been a “numbers guy,” and enjoy doing the accounting for our three busy dental offices. The doctors at Cherry Hill Dental put the patient first in their treatments. CHD is a family-owned and operated corporation and has been in Columbia for the last 17 years! I’m proud to be on the team.

I’m fairly new to the Columbia area and love it! I am married with a little girl and baby boy. We love to go hiking on the many trails Columbia has to offer, and ride our bikes on the MKT trail. Originally from the Kansas City area, I am an avid Royals fan!


Hygienists

Tammy M.

I have been a dental hygienist at Cherry Hill Dental since November 2014. I have been a licensed dental hygienist since 1993: I graduated from Forest Park in St. Louis. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 25 years and we have two great kids. I love dentistry because I enjoy seeing the patients’ quality of life improve through their oral health. A toothache is a terrible thing to experience, so I’m focused on prevention of oral diseases and being proactive in dental care.

In my spare time, I volunteer at our local church in St. Martin, and spend time with my family.


Rene L.

I am here to provide my patients with optimal care, education, and the comfort of knowing they are receiving the best of care and my undivided attention. Cherry Hill Dental’s primary goal is to provide the most updated resources for our patients’ care and comfort. I am honored to engage in such a practice that values a patient’s customized needs and helps patients overcome barriers that may prohibit them from achieving the best possible health.

I enjoy any outdoor activity but fishing is my sweet spot. Having recently moved here from Illinois, I look forward to continuing my volunteer work with the American Red Cross.


Clint S.

I work with patients in the treatment and prevention of gum disease through preventive cleanings and oral health education. 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 hygiene 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 with one son. In my free time, I enjoy weight training, playing disc golf, being outdoors, and family time.


Front Office

Kelci N.

Hello! I am the patient relations coordinator in our Columbia location. I have been with the CHD team since July 2014. My job includes checking in patients, patient registration, scheduling appointments, mailing, ordering office supplies, and various other tasks in the office. What I enjoy most about my job is interacting with our patients and seeing their smile transformations! Our staff goes above and beyond to make sure that each visit is a great experience.

I am the proud mother of an amazing two-year-old boy named Conner. In our spare time, we enjoy being outdoors, cooking, traveling, and exploring new things. We also love spending time with family and friends.


Marissa S.

Hello! I am Marissa, the office coordinator in our Jefferson City office.  I am here for all of your clerical needs in the Jefferson City office! I do everything, ranging from checking patients in for their appointments to writing estimates and everything in between! What I love most about my job is seeing the joy that we give our patients by helping them achieve their smile goal. Our doctors treat all of our patients as if they were their own family, and I couldn’t ask for anybody better to represent.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending quality time with my family. I have a daughter and she has me wrapped around her little finger. We love being outdoors, traveling, and trying new things!


Teresa S.

I have been with Cherry Hill since August 2014, but I have been a loyal patient for the last 13 years. I work in the call center: answering patients’ questions and scheduling exams and treatments. The call center is a very busy part of the office, and I enjoy interacting with our patients on a daily basis. It gives me great satisfaction when all the patient’s needs are met with one call. My job also includes administrative assistant duties, so I work with many of our awesome vendors. I also assist in the social activities at the office. I love all the variety in my job and I especially enjoy making my coworkers happy with all our social activities. I learned so much at our dental assisting program at Cherry Hill. I completed my certification in April 2017, and earned honors.

My family and I moved to Columbia from St. Louis in 2001. I have been married for more than 30 years and have three adult daughters. I like taking walks with out two rescue dogs, Lucky and Suzy Q. My hobbies are planter gardening, sewing, and traveling.


Janet C.

I work as our coding specialist, to assure that diagnostic and treatment procedures schedules are accurately applied for insurance claims and for the dentists’ use. I have also had the pleasure of working at Cherry Hill Dental for ten years.

I am originally from Alabama and have retained my accent after 45 years in Missouri.


Debbie H.

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.


Rebecca P.

I am one of our insurance specialists here at Cherry Hill Dental. It’s my responsibility to follow up on all outstanding claims, appeal denied claims, verify our patients’ eligibility, and help with answering phone calls when needed. I spend most of my time on the phone with insurance companies, but what I love most about my job is helping our patients get the most of out of their benefits from their insurance.

I moved to Columbia in the summer of 2015 from the desert of Southern Utah. I am married to my best friend and have a beautiful son who just started kindergarten. When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, playing the piano, and hiking.


Meghan G.

I serve our patients by assisting in communicating the expectations and the costs associated with their individual treatments. I act as an advocate to ensure that our patients are able to understand and receive the treatment they need while enjoying each visit to our office. The highlight of my day is getting to meet so many wonderful patients. I really enjoy working in such a positive and energetic atmosphere where learning is considered one of our most beneficial attributes.

My family and I recently relocated to Columbia. My husband and I have been married for seven years and have two beautiful little boys, Jordan and Michael, with another little blessing on the way in September 2017. We also love our fuzzy children Angel, Hector, and Abby. We enjoy being outdoors, whether we are hiking, hunting, swimming, traveling, playing sports, or simply tossing a ball around. We love going to church where I serve on the worship team and as a youth group leader. We enjoy creating wonderful memories with our children and focusing on all the little things in life.


Steven G.

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 Walmart for a while, then my brother Dr. Tony Gadbois asked me to come aboard the Cherry Hill Dental train, and here I am! As a sterilization technician and inventory and supply and equipment maintainer, 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.


Assistants

Shana B.

I received my dental assisting certification from Nichols Career Center in Jefferson City in 1998, and began my career as a dental assistant. Since then I have worked in both general dentistry and orthodontics offices, but have always appreciated the quality of work and variety of procedures here at CHD. As an assistant, I make sure that each patient is comfortable and that the procedure runs as smoothly and as quickly as possible. I strive to make sure that every patient’s experience here at CHD is a good one. The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the satisfaction of our patients and the smiles on their faces each time they complete their treatment. It’s what makes me want to come to work every day.

My husband and I have been married since 2001 and have two young children. We enjoy spending time together on our farm, riding horses, hunting, fishing, camping, and swimming. I am also the director of our church program for kids called “Kids for Jesus,” which ministers to an average of 60 kids every Wednesday night.


saraSara S.

I get to work with Dr. Tony on a daily basis using my Missouri extended schooling, and supervise the back office at the end of day, which includes sending out lab cases and whatever additional odds and ends that need to be done. Getting to meet new people every day, along with the opportunity to help them understand and become more acquainted with our process, is what makes Cherry Hill Dental such a fast-paced and rewarding practice to work at. Working alongside the best doctors and most insightful assistants I’ve known in my many years as an assistant 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.


jamiJami H.

I have been at Cherry Hill Dental since 2008. I am a hygiene assistant with some restorative experience, so depending on the day, you may see me assisting on either side. On a good day you’re very likely to see me singing and/or dancing through the halls as well! I have a pretty energetic personality that’s kind of hard to keep to myself. I love working at CHD because it allows me to interact with different people from all walks of life on a daily basis. I feel that knowledge is power, so I try to educate each patient throughout their appointment. My goal is to treat each patient as is they were my family member.

I am from Fayetteville, Arkansas, and my family and I have been in Columbia since 2007. I am married with four wonderful children. I enjoy watching football and basketball and like to play softball during my free time. I have a twin sister, but technically I am the baby of ten kids!


Megan M.

I’m very friendly, outgoing, and one of the many wonderful dental assistants at Cherry Hill Dental. My job at CHD is to assist the dentist with any fillings, crowns, and other restorations to your teeth. The most important part of my job is to make you, the patient, feel comfortable throughout your visit! Getting to know you is very important to our Cherry Hill Dental family. At Cherry Hill Dental, everyone has a unique personality that keeps patients motivated, smiling, and excited to come back.

I am blessed with a beautiful young daughter named Kenedi. Outside of the office, I enjoy the company of my daughter, friends, and family, or get lost in a great book. I’m a very creative person and appreciate all types of art.


Tara H.

Having had some bad experiences at the dentist as a child, I considered the dental industry as a career. I use this as an opportunity to make visits more enjoyable for others. I heard about the Cherry Hill Dental program for dental assisting and was fortunate enough to get a job here once I graduated. I’ve been a hygiene assistant with Cherry Hill Dental for several years now and I love it! Every day and every patient is a little different. The most rewarding part is watching someone transform through their changing smile!

When I’m not working, I enjoy being outside and spending time with my fiancé, family, and friends!


Taylor K.

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


Precious B.

I’m a hygiene dental assistant at CHD. I received my certification through Cherry Hill’s Dental Assisting program. I love what I do and enjoy the wonderful team I work with! My priority is to make sure each patient has a comfortable and memorable experience at CHD. My goal is to further my education in dentistry and some day become a dentist myself.


Courtney R.

I started working for Cherry Hill Dental in August 2016 after completing the dental assisting program here. I mostly assist chairside in hygiene, but I also have some experience assisting during restorative procedures. My favorite part of my job is getting to meet new people every day and helping them transform their smile so they feel more confident. Cherry Hill is such a great place to work — the atmosphere is always fun!

In my spare time, I like to be with friends and family. My niece and two nephews are my pride and joy. When I’m not spending time with them, I enjoy traveling and exploring new places.


Jayleen P.

My job includes sitting chairside throughout patients’ cleaning appointments and exams, and making sure that all patients are comfortable and satisfied throughout their appointments. The best part about my job is meeting new people and helping them create a plan to complete the smile they have always wanted. Seeing patients walk out with a confident smile is what makes me smile! I love working with the doctors and the rest of my team because they make work feel like a second home. I love my Cherry Hill Dental family!

Outside of Cherry Hill Dental, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also have a wonderful fur baby named Milo! I enjoy watching movies, going to the gym, and exploring the outdoors!


Natasha L.

I began my career right here with our Cherry Hill Dental Assistant program and hired on with Cherry Hill after I graduated in 2008. I’ve been happy to be here helping our patients ever since! I love everything about dentistry, from getting to know the patients to building great friendships with my team. It’s a very fun and upbeat office.

I am the mother of four boys and love being with my family. I also enjoy the outdoors and traveling.


Amanda P.

I do a little bit of everything here at Cherry Hill Dental. I mostly work in the lab making crowns, Essix retainers, and whitening trays. You can also finding me helping in sterilization, as well as stepping in to assist with appointments when needed. We have a great, hard-working team at Cherry Hill Dental; everyone strives to provide the best possible care.

I currently live in New Bloomfield with my husband and two children. I enjoy spending time with my family and look forward to furthering my career in the dental field.
