Meet Our Dental Team
At the dental practice of Dr. Thomas W. Watkins, our friendly, dedicated, and energetic dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a positive dental experience every time you visit our practice.
We welcome you with warm smiles to our practice!
Welcome! I’m the patient services coordinator and receptionist. Working at the front desk gives me the privilege to greet you when you arrive, schedule future appointments before you leave and assist you with any insurance questions you may have. Our practice is like a family! Dr. Watkins is a kind and generous dentist and goes out of this way to help his patients and our community. My husband, Mike, and I have two sons named Andrew and Alex. In my spare time, I love attending my son’s soccer games and traveling with my family.
Hi! I’m Barb and I’m a licensed dental hygienist. My patient care involves prevention and treatment of gum disease, including periodontal therapy, oral hygiene instruction, oral cancer screenings and the use of digital X-rays. I enjoy building lasting relationships with our patients and assisting them in achieving optimal dental health. It is a privilege to work with Dr. Watkins and our wonderful team. My husband, Bob and I, have two grown sons, Ryan and Trevor and Jessica, our lovely daughter-in-law. I am an avid sports fan and enjoy spending time with my family.
I provide support to Dr. Watkins in all aspects of dentistry. As a dental assistant, I also perform specialized tasks such as making mouth guards, bite splints and bleaching trays. I strive to make patients feel comfortable, and value lasting friendships I’ve developed with many of them over the years. I enjoy spending spare time with family and friends, and actively support Breast Cancer Awareness, including the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Lawrence County Cancer Patients Services, and Hoosiers Outrun Cancer programs.
As a licensed dental hygienist, I perform preventive care along with periodontal therapy and management. I love enhancing patient’s lives by increasing confidence in their smiles and improving health! Dr. Watkins is great to work with because he genuinely cares about the well-being of his patients and is dedicated to their care. We are all thrilled to be part of a well woven, experienced crew who knows how to get great results! In addition to dental hygiene, I enjoy photographic note card design, our cats-and a variety of community based activities along with my husband of over 25 years and our energetic seven year old son.
I am a licensed dental hygienist, and I perform dental gum and teeth cleanings, oral cancer screenings, and periodontal treatments. Our patients have become like family to me over the years. I enjoy helping our patients maintain their good oral health. My husband, Lee, and I have two children, who are now grown and married. We have three wonderful grandchildren! I enjoy antique toys and pottery.
As a receptionist and patient services coordinator, I am here to assist you with any needs you may have from scheduling appointments to making financial arrangements. I enjoy making our patients feel comfortable so they have a positive dental experience in our office. My husband, Mark, and I have two daughters named Bethany and Shelby, one son-in law Andrew, and a grandson Eagan! In my spare time, I love traveling, reading and playing games.
As one of Dr. Watkins’ dental assistants, I work with him chairside during procedures and try to make our patients as comfortable as possible. I like interacting with our patients, seeing their smiles, and educating them on their dental health. Dr. Watkins is great to work with because he’s very kind and really takes the time to listen to our patients. My husband, Derek, and I have three dogs named Shara, Buster, and Kujo. I like going to the Orleans Farmers Market in the summer and to craft shows. We also go to dirt track races and demolition derbies in the summertime.
