Front Staff Team


Nadine joined our team in 2018 and has 20 years of dental experience. She has been in Tallahassee for more than 40 years but calls New Orleans her home. 

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her two children, Rachel and Robbie, cooking, and horseback riding. She also has an extended family of a cat, dag, rabbit, and two grand-dogs. 










Samantha joined the team in 2018 as our scheduling coordinator. She is a native to Texas, but she has called Tallahassee home for six years and absolutely loves it. She has extensive training in communications and enjoys helping people with their dental needs.

Samantha enjoys time outdoors with her boyfriend and their dog Oliver hiking, sailing, camping and canoeing.







Ian joined the team shortly after Samantha in 2018 as another member of the front staff. Although his previous dental experience was only from the other side of the chair, Ian has brought his years of customer service and technological expertise to streamline the office to make every patient’s experience as easy and stress-free as possible.

Ian prefers to spend his free time with his wife and two cats, rock climbing, and woodworking.
