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.

Kim has been working in dentistry for 26 years. She was an assistant for 23 years and decided to change her career to the administration side of dentistry. Kim lives in Waynesboro and enjoys spending time with her two daughters and four granddaughters.

Scheduling Coordinator

After a varied 28 year career in nursing and pharmaceutical sales, Laura joined ADC in the fall of 2018. This position has allowed her the opportunity to get to know the wonderful patients of ADC. When Laura is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She has twin daughters that keep her active and busy!

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.

Registered Dental Hygienist

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.

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.


Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. I have been practicing dental hygiene since November of 2016 and have enjoyed and learned tremendously. I feel very fortunate to be a part of the Aesthetic Dentistry of Charlottesville family. It is always a joy to meet new people and build relationships with my patients. When I am not working, I love spending time with my family and enjoy cooking and baking.

Registered Dental Hygienist

Registered Dental Hygienist

Dentistry has been my passion since the teenage years. Everything about it, especially the great patients I meet, and helping them have a healthy mouth and a great smile.

I attended VCU’s Dental Hygiene program and graduated from there in 1998 with my BS in Dental Hygiene. I have been practicing in Charlottesville for over 20 years. And have been working with Dr. Neel for over two years.


In my spare time I enjoy participating in Community Dental Health projects to give back to the community. And most of all, being with my family.

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.


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.

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.


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.
Shelly M.

Dental Assistant

I was born and raised in Charlottesville, VA. I am lucky enough to have met my best friend in kindergarten and in 2017 we got married. My husband was the person to introduce to the dental field because he was thinking about becoming an orthodontist. He ended up changing his mind but I loved the dental world.

I enjoy working with the ADC team and the new opportunities it brings. My husband and I enjoy going on walks with our dog Lilly and watching my nephews.
