Meet the Team

Susan

Scheduling & Insurance Coordinator

Susan began her career in dentistry in 1999 at an orthodontics office in her hometown of Albany, Georgia. She lived and worked in Warner Robbins, Georgia for 19 years, and finally decided to follow her dream of living at the beach in 2018. She enjoys getting to know the patients and educating them on the importance of a healthy, beautiful smile while helping them navigate their dental insurance and helping them achieve quality dental care at an affordable price. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with friends, her husband, Kevin, daughter, McKensey, and their two dogs. While she will always be a Georgia Bulldog at heart, she loves her new home at the beach and gets to enjoy her favorite vacation destination every day, while helping others achieve their best dental health.

 

Ashley

Registered Dental Hygienist

Ashley’s interest in the dental field initially began when she got braces. Later while pursuing a business degree at Missouri Southern State University, a family friend became a dental hygienist. Working part-time during college, she got her first job in dentistry as a dental hygiene
assistant. After receiving her business degree, Ashley moved to Panama City and continued her education, graduating from Gulf Coast State College Dental Hygiene Program in 2002. She joined our team in 2006 and her patients love her and request her by name. In her spare time, she takes care of their two dogs and enjoys spending time with her husband, Tucker, and their two daughters, Sterling and Sydney. She loves her family activities including traveling and watching her children play in volleyball tournaments.

 

Jassmin

Registered Dental Hygienist

As a child, Jassmin was fascinated with teeth. She was one of those kids that couldn’t wait to get braces. Her positive dental experiences confirmed her desire to be a dental professional. Originally from Bonifay, FL, Jassmin began her dental career in 1996 when she graduated from Gulf Coast Community College Dental Assisting Program as a Certified Dental Assistant. After practicing as an assistant for five years she returned to school and furthered her education in the Gulf Coast Community College Dental Hygiene Program. In January 2004, she became a part of our team. Jassmin truly loves her job and the fulfillment it brings with the opportunity to build long-term, trusting relationships with her patients. When she isn’t working in our office she is assisting her husband, Steve, in their family business and enjoying being supermom to their son, Wade.

 

Anna

Expanded Functions Dental Assistant

Anna and her family moved to Panama City Beach from Nashville, Tennessee just ten days before Hurricane Michael. It has always been her dream to live at the beach and she made it happen. Anna has worked as an EFDA in the State of Tennessee for 25 years. Anna had the privilege of working for one of the most highly respected dental practices in Nashville for most of her career. There she gained knowledge and experience with not only general and cosmetic dentistry, but implants and oral surgery as well. She hopes to utilize her skills and knowledge that she acquired as part of the Palmetto Dental team for many years to come. Anna is married and has two amazing children, Josie, age 17, is a theater major and makeup artist and Jonas, age 11, hopes to work for NASA and fly into space one day.

 

Bobbie

Dental Assistant

Growing up, Bobbie had a wonderful dentist but never really thought much about working in the dental field until she moved to Tallahassee and saw an ad for a dental assistant. She was fortunate to get hired on the spot and was trained on the job. It didn’t take her long to know she would stay in this field for many years. In fact, she stayed at that particular office for 30 years. She moved to Panama City Beach in 20?? and her great personality, upbeat attitude and experience has made her an asset to our team. When she is not working she enjoys playing tennis and spending time with her boyfriend, Neal.

 

Volker

Lab Technician

Volker graduated from the Carl Engler School in Karlsruhe, Germany as a Certified Dental Technician. After working in small and large dental laboratories, Volker realized he could best utilize his artistic talents directly with a dentist in a private practice. He joined our staff in 1993 and has attended numerous continuing education courses. He is personally associated with many members of the internationally renowned Oral Design Group. His knowledge and artistry is a tremendous benefit to our practice. He enjoys photography, music and traveling. He has been in the U.S. for many years now, but goes to back to Germany every now and then to visit his mother. He and his companion, Janet, love all the activities and events that Panama City Beach has to offer.
