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.
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.
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 one son named Fynnick. In my free time, I enjoy weight training, playing disc golf, being outdoors, and family time.
My first thought of entry into the field of dentistry was at age eight. Dentistry is where I was born to be. My only regret is not going further with my education and becoming a dentist. I believe a great smile says so much about a person and I love being a part of creating that piece of joy for someone.
Patient advocacy has been a passion and a challenge that has always lined up with my overall enjoyment of people. Building personal relationships, working through treatment concerns and patient fears has inspired my desire to grow in all areas of dentistry as much as I can. Becoming a part of Cherry Hill Dental has added to furthering my education and expansion of dental knowledge. Our patients are top-notch, our training is continuous and I am grateful for the learning opportunities to come. All of this just adds to a life that is fulfilled with family, friends, gardening, living a healthy lifestyle and all things outdoors!
Hello! I am Marissa, the Office Coordinator in our Jefferson City and Fulton offices. I am here for all of your clerical needs! I do everything ranging from checking patients in for their appointments, to writing estimates and everything in between! I absolutely love 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 husband and daughter. We love being outdoors, traveling, and trying new things!
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.

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.

My name is Becky. I am in the billing and insurance department at Cherry Hill Dental. Before you come in for your appointment, I contact your insurance company to see what your coverage levels are and to make sure you are still actively covered. After your appointments have been processed through insurance, if there is a balance left over, I will contact you. If you ever receive something from us or from your insurance company, please feel free to contact me and I will gladly help you.
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 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.

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.
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.

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.
