KC

Treatment Coordinator for Dr. Neel & Dr. DeAngelis

I am originally from Saginaw, Michigan where I attended Delta University with an Associate’s degree in Applied Science. I have worked for Aesthetic Dentistry of Charlottesville as a Treatment Coordinator since 2007 and bring more than 25 years of experience in insurance billing and finance to the practice. I am happy to assist you in coordinating your insurance benefits and working out payment plans to fit any budget.

In my spare time, I enjoy time with family and friends. I have two beautiful daughters and a cute Basset Hound named Oreo. Outside of work I spend the majority of my time in and around Fluvanna with family and friends.

Cathy

Insurance Coordinator

After a 29-year career in banking, I joined the Aesthetic Dentistry of Charlottesville family in December 2010 as the office receptionist. The position allowed me the pleasure of greeting our patients upon arrival and getting to know them. In August 2011, I transitioned into the position of Insurance Coordinator. If you have any questions pertaining to your insurance payments or statements, please feel free to give me a call.

In my spare time, I love spending time with family and friends, reading, going to the beach, and anything that gets me closer to nature. One of the things that brings me the most pleasure is feeding and watching God’s animals (birds, squirrels, deer, raccoons, bear, foxes, and turkeys) through the windows of my cabin in the woods.

Michelle

Hygiene Coordinator

Originally from South Carolina, I started my career in the dental field in Myrtle Beach in 2002. I later moved to Charlottesville in 2009 and began my career at ADC in October 2014. I enjoy my position as Hygiene Coordinator because I get to meet people daily.

It is wonderful to be able to assist in the process of bringing out their smile while feeling comfortable in an environment in which they may not normally feel at ease. I also enjoy helping people schedule appointments for the whole family while making that a hassle-free process.

Great place for the whole family, they make you feel very comfortable during your visit. There were no complications with the procedure they performed. The staff was nice and very caring throughout my visit.

I have been practicing dental hygiene for the past six years and love it! I like to meet new people and build relationships with my patients. I have a beautiful 3-year-old little girl who brings me joy each and every day. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, taking photographs, creating fun projects and activities for my daughter to enjoy.

Kim

I am originally from the Richmond area and attended Virginia Western in Roanoke. I joined the Aesthetic Dentistry of Charlottesville family in December of 2012. My passions are sharing in the lives of my two grown daughters, hanging out with my hubby and our five four-legged children, and helping to make the world a brighter place one smile at a time.

Melissa

Registered Dental Hygienist

A native of Virginia, I began my career in the dental profession in 2003. Admiring the relationships built between clinical staff and patients, I decided to further my education and became a dental hygienist. I completed my degree in 2011 from Germanna Community College. I truly enjoy meeting new people and making their dental experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful family and gardening.

Alyson

Registered Dental Hygienist

Originally from Georgia, I moved to the Weyers Cave area in 2016. I was very fortunate to become a part of the Aesthetic Dentistry of Charlottesville team. While in Georgia I graduated with my degree in dental hygiene from Darton State College in 2014. I was licensed and practiced in Georgia for a year before moving to Virginia. I take pride in providing quality and personal care to patients. I also enjoy working in an ever-changing and evolving field. When not at work I enjoy spending time with my family and my dog Molly.

Shelly

Registered Dental Hygienist

My name is Shelly and I recently moved back to my home, Charlottesville, VA after living in Acadiana, Louisiana for five years. I am a Registered Dental Hygienist and I maintain a license in the state of Virginia and Louisiana. I have nine years of clinical experience under General Supervision and most recently, five years of experience with implant and periodontal patients involving hard and soft tissue, and an array of implants.

I attended Old Dominion University and graduated as a double major in Psychology and Dental Hygiene. I love working in a general dentistry practice because I love the variety of patients, ranging from small children to adolescents and adults.

Outside the office, I enjoy any outdoor activity, spending time with family and friends, exploring local and surrounding restaurants, vineyards, and shops, going to festivals, dancing, and cooking Cajun and French cuisine. I love living life to the fullest and serving my community and patients to the best of my ability.

Dorothy

Dental Assistant

My name is Dorothy and I am one of the dental assistants at Aesthetic Dentistry of Charlottesville. I’ve been blessed to have assisted Dr. Larry Hund for almost 20 years and for 11 of those years he and I have been proud to represent the “Oldies but Goodies” team for ADC. Happily, it turned out that our years of experience with the tried and true methods of dentistry blended beautifully with the highly successful progressive techniques of Aesthetic Dentistry of Charlottesville. We truly respect and appreciate every member of our talented dental family and we have learned much from each other.

When I’m not working hard to take care of the wonderful ADC patients, you’ll find me taking care of my little “critters” or tending the flowers and shrubs on my mini farm in Gordonsville.

Lisa

Dental Assistant

I live in Scottsville, VA with my husband and beautiful daughter, Karley and have been with Aesthetic Dentistry of Charlottesville since 2007. I started thinking about joining the dental field when I was a teenager because of my own personal experience with extensive dental work as a child and I now enjoy being able to come to work every day and help others who are in need of dental care.

Patsy

Dental Assistant

My life changed when I began my career as a dental assistant in 1985 with on-the-job training. I have taken 12 months of Virginia Apprenticeship at CATEC and am a former member of the American Dental Assistant Association. I am married to my husband, Gene, and live in Scottsville, Virginia.

Erin

Dental Assistant

I have been a dental assistant for over 10 years and am blessed to have an amazing husband, Colin, and two sweet children, Tommy and Avriel. Dental assisting is the perfect job for me, as I have the heart to help others. I truly enjoy making patients feel at ease and happy in the dental chair.

I attended Houghton College and UNC Chapel Hill, and am board certified through DANB (Dental Assisting National Board). All the doctors and staff at Aesthetic Dentistry are awesome. We work together like one big family. I am currently pursuing my BSN through PVCC and ODU, as I would like to be a medical missionary overseas when I retire. Having a supportive husband, home-family, and work-family have made it possible to further my education.

Melissia

Dental Assistant

I was born in Waynesboro, VA and moved to North Carolina when I was six years old. My dental career began in a small office in Mt. Airy, NC in 2001 before coming home to Virginia and working for Aesthetic Dentistry of Charlottesville in December of 2014. I like that I can help people with their dental needs, answer their questions and try to comfort them because I’ve had a lot of dental work myself.

I live in Waynesboro, VA with my husband, Ricky and two doggies, Smokey and Rascal.

Shawntay

Dental Assistant

I live in Buckingham with my husband, Spencer, and our beautiful boys. We also have five pets. After high school, I started looking into what CATEC had to offer and the dental assistant program piqued my interest. I registered right away and began classes. ADC allowed me to come and shadow and it became my dream. Now that I am an employee, I wake up every morning happy and excited to come to work. I enjoy meeting all the wonderful patients, helping to make beautiful smiles and enabling them to have the best experience I possibly can.
