Charlotte — Registered Dental Hygienist
I joined the dental field in 1974 and began with this practice in 1991. As a registered dental hygienist, I provide our patients’ cleanings and examine their gums for any abnormalities. I also perform some periodontal treatments, such as root planing and scaling, take X-rays, and perform fluoride treatments. My favorite parts of my job are getting to know our patients, making their treatments as smooth as possible, and offering excellent instruction for our patients to maintain the amazing smiles they receive from Dr. McCreary.
My wonderful husband, Byron, and I have been married for 35 years, and we have a son and a daughter. For my relaxation, I enjoy a paper crafting hobby as a demonstrator with Stampin' UP!, and I also enjoy cooking and reading.
Jennie — Treatment Coordinator
You will see me a little bit of everywhere around the office. I love helping patients understand their dental needs and financial options and then seeing how satisfied they are once their treatment is completed. I began working in the dental field in 2004 as a dental hygienist but found my passion in the front office helping patients feel comfortable and achieve ideal oral health. I joined McCreary Dentistry in 2016.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my husband and our dog. I also love to exercise and play drums in my church band!
Jessica — Dental Assistant
I assist Dr. McCreary with many of our patients’ procedures and educate them on the importance of their treatment and how it will improve their oral health. I love getting to know each patient as an individual and helping them feel more confident about their smile. Dr. McCreary is a wonderful dentist, but aside from that, he shows true compassion and generosity towards his staff and his patients.
When I’m not in the office I enjoy spending time with my family.
Kristina — Dental Assistant
I love working at McCreary Dentistry because Dr. McCreary really cares about each patient and our team is like a big family. We have such a welcoming atmosphere for our patients—many of them say they feel “at home” in our office. We even have a variety of amenities in the office that really help our patients relax in our care.
What I enjoy the most about dentistry is helping people to achieve great smiles and feel wonderful about themselves. I get to work alongside Dr. McCreary as he transforms the patient’s smile—and many times the person leaves feeling more self-confident! When I’m not assisting Dr. McCreary, I am spending time with my family.
Sara — Patient Care Coordinator
I joined the dental field in 2006 as a dental assistant and transitioned to the front office at McCreary Dentistry in 2013. I verify patients' insurance benefits, process estimation of benefits from their insurance companies, keep all patient records current, and greet patients by name when they arrive at our office. I truly enjoy having the opportunity to meet such friendly people and hear their interesting stories while I schedule their next appointment. I also enjoy working with a down-to-earth dentist who has a good sense of humor and makes it a point to put a smile on all of our faces every day.
When I'm not in the office, I spend my time investing in all things creative. I love photography, drawing, painting and music. I'm currently working toward a bachelor's degree in computer science at Florida State. My favorite thing of all is spending time with my little boy, Damien!
Jacqueline — Registered Dental Hygienist
I joined the dental field in 2006 and began working for Dr. McCreary in 2013. As a registered dental hygienist, I provide patient cleanings, take x-rays, administer fluoride treatments, evaluate the condition of patient's gums, and provide instructions for oral home care. My favorite part of my job is making patients feel comfortable during their dental appointments be easing any anxiety they may have while providing them with a thorough cleaning. I am happy to be a part of Dr. McCreary's team and enjoy working with a dentist who provides exceptional care for his patients.
When I'm not at work, I like to go to the beach, read, research new recipes, and spend time with my son.

Jill — Financial Coordinator
I joined McCreary Dentistry in 2016 and assist the practice with insurance payments and verification as well as patient accounts and billing. I act as a liaison between our patients and their insurance companies in an effort to make the insurance filing and payment processing as simple as possible. I am fortunate to work remotely from my home in Nebraska, but I also get to spend time in the office 2 - 3 times per year. Who doesn't love a trip to Florida?!
I was born and raised in Nebraska and played volleyball at Kansas State University. My husband, Tyson, and I have four children - Jaden, Payton, Tanner, and Brynn. We live in a small town, so I stay very involved with our school and community. I like to golf and bowl, but my favorite activities are watching my kids in their MANY activities.
