Vicki joined our team in 2019. Originally from Georgia, she moved to eastern NC in 2009 on her husband’s orders with the United States Marine Corps. After serving two enlistments, they decided to change paths but still make NC home and we are so glad they did. Her passion for patient care and satisfaction is unsurpassed and she has been such a valuable leader for our team.
Susan has been part of the team the longest. She started working with Dr. Ward in 2000 as a certified dental assistant. She has since hung up her dental jacket for the luxuries of working in the front office with cushy chairs. On occasion, Susan is still called to dental assist when necessary. She has a wealth of knowledge with a very caring personality. Patients absolutely love her and so do we! We have decided, she is never allowed to retire.
Katie is one of our scheduling coordinators and she does a great job! As our practice continued to grow, we wanted to add someone great to our front office. We waited, and waited, to find the perfect match to add to our work family. Katie was that person. She has fit in beautifully. With her past work experience in endodontics along with her work ethic and personality, we’re not sure how we all lived without her!
We were fortunate to add Melissa to our team in 2010. Her experience in pediatric dentistry has been a valuable asset. Patients love her compassion, especially the ones that may arrive to their appointments nervous. Melissa has a way with patients to put them at ease. Many returning patients request Melissa to assist again with their appointment.
Chloe is the newest addition to our team and we would now be lost without her. She is a native of Wilmington and has been working in the dental field since 2011. Chloe is constantly receiving compliments from patients about how personable and professional she is and we agree!
Kristen is very passionate about patient care. Her fun-loving personality makes for not only a great patient experience, but also an enjoyable work environment. Her attention to detail and knack for efficiency makes her a truly invaluable member of our team.
