Meet the Whole Team
Kayla, Scheduling Coordinator
Team Member since 2019
I have fallen in love with the dentistry field. I enjoy seeing patients leave our office with a happy and healthy smile. My husband, Nathan, and I have 3 beautiful girls, Brylie, Kinley and Natalee. (You can only imagine the amount of sass that is in our house!) Spending time with my family is the most important thing to me. We love to fish, play softball, and travel as often as we can. Our favorite places to visit are St. George Island and Helen, Ga! I absolutely love being a part of the Thomasville Dental Team!
Kristi, Insurance Coordinator
Team Member since 2014
My love of dentistry began in 2004 when I started as an assistant. After spending a couple of school years as a missionary in Haiti, I came back to work in the dental field in the front office. I started working for Dr. Sanders in 2014 as the Insurance Coordinator, where I help patients get the most out of their dental and sometimes medical insurance. My favorite part of dentistry is seeing a patient’s smile after their teeth are fixed. Outside of the office, I love reading, shopping, spending time with extended family, riding the golf cart with my son, Henry, and vacationing in the mountains with my husband, Brandon.
Andrea, Dental Hygienist
Team Member since 2010
I have been in dentistry for the last 8 years after graduating in Dental Hygiene from Darton College. I love meeting and talking to people, so Dental hygiene is a perfect fit for me. I also, enjoy being a part of giving people confidence in their smiles. Spending time with my family and friends is extremely important to me. My husband, Blake, and two boys, Tanner and Greyson, enjoy our farm life and traveling together especially to the beach.
Heather, Dental Hygienist
Team Member since 2011
I began working as a Dental Hygienist in 1999. After school, I quickly realized I loved being a Dental Hygienist for several different reasons. Educating people about how to take care of their teeth and gums is so important. Seeing positive results at the follow-up visit from what I have taught them makes this job worthwhile. I also love it when a patient’s reservations are eased by our office and staff. We try to make the experience personable and fun, which is meaningful to our patients. I have been married to my best friend, Jared, for over 18 years and we have two amazing children, Lily and Gunner. My hobbies include reading, spending time in the great outdoors and traveling.
Lauren, Dental Hygienist
Team Member since 2017
I’ve been a Dental Hygienist for nine years. Dentistry sparked my interest at a young age. As a child, I can remember playing with my dentist Barbie and drawing teeth on pieces of paper pretending they were X-rays. Going to the dentist was always something I looked forward to and I just knew that I wanted to be a dental hygienist when I grew up. I love what I do and enjoy forming relationships with patients while educating them on oral hygiene. In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with family. My husband, Trey, and I have a son, Walt. Together, we enjoy spending time at the lake and and going to the beach.
Pam, Dental Hygienist
Team Member since 2016
I love being a hygienist. Making patients feel comfortable and teaching about proper oral hygiene is very important to me. I love having relationships with my patients. I was a dental assistant for 15 years before pursuing a career in hygiene. I have been in dentistry for over 29 years and joined Thomasville Dental Center with Dr. Lewis. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, especially my wonderful husband, Brandon. I am very active in my church and spend my free time hunting, fishing, and camping. I also love spoiling my fur babies, BB and Pyper.
Emily, Dental Hygienist

I have been a Dental Hygienist for the past 10 years. I graduated from Darton with an Associate of Science in Dental Hygiene. I love working in dentistry because I get to help promote good dental hygiene. I also love it because I get to meet new people. I enjoy doing anything outdoors.
