Melinda
Patient Care Coordinator

As soon as you walk in, you will be greeted by one of our great patient coordinators, Melinda.

 

Melinda was born and raised in Alexandria, Virginia and now calls Raeford, North Carolina her home. Melinda has been in the dental field for over ten years, and she is a great addition to our practice. She makes welcoming our patients her top priority each day.

 

She is an amazing mom to her two sons Anthony and Joey. She is also a fur mom to her four pets Stella, Felix, Mittens, and Petey. You will often hear her say that her favorite season is Fall and she loves to enjoy a pumpkin spice latte.

Makayla

Registered Dental Hygienist

Makayla was born and raised in Millford, Connecticut and has lived in North Carolina for the last three years now.  She joined our Dogwood team November of 2020.

Makayla completed her undergraduate studies at Mount Ida College, just outside of Boston, MA, receiving her Bachelor's degree in Dental Hygiene.  She then went on to obtain her Master's degree in Healthcare Management from The University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth.

After graduating, Makayla moved to North Carolina out of her love for traveling and to continue on her career as a dental hygienist.  For the past five years, she has loved providing care for her patients and establishing relationships, giving them an experience that is pleasant and comfortable.  She says the most rewarding part of her job is when a patient can walk away feeling confident about their smile.

In her free time, Makayla enjoys spending time with friends and family, checking off her bucket list of places to travel, being outdoors and running.

Dogwood Family Dental is so lucky to have Makayla be a part of our wonderful hygiene team.
