Meet the Team

We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Dental Assistant

I graduated from Midlands Technical College with a certificate in dental assisting in 2014. In addition to assisting the doctors and taking our patients’ X-rays, I also work hard to make sure our patients are comfortable. I love the care the doctors have for our patients; they take the time to see if a root canal is necessary and what’s best for each patient and each tooth in the long term. We are truly a team that works and has fun together.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and watching HGTV.



I joined Central Carolina Endodontics in 2012. As our receptionist, I schedule appointments, check patients in and out, coordinate marketing, help our assistants when needed, and explain treatments and care to patients. I love hearing the relief our patients feel from being out of pain, and relief from realizing a root canal really isn’t so bad. I attribute that to the level of care we provide—it is truly from the heart from start to finish. 

I am married with a dog and two cats. I love spending time at Lake Marion, especially with my tons of nieces and nephews who make family time there fun. I love to travel, see new places, and go on new adventures with my wife.


Dental Assistant

I earned my Medical Office Assisting Diploma from Orangeburg Calhoun Tech in 1997 and joined the team here in 2010. I work with Dr. Brown, Dr. Bonavilla, and Dr. Harkrider as an assistant at our Orangeburg office, though patients will occasionally see me in West Columbia and Irmo as well. I enjoy being part of a team that can help people get out of pain and keep their teeth. Our patients are all such nice people, and I am proud of the level of care we provide to them.

My husband William and I have a daughter Crystal, two granddaughters Ashley and Brandy, and a great grandson Blake. We also have two dogs and two cats that live with us on a small farm in St. Matthews where we enjoy gardening and farm life!


Dental Assistant

I graduated from Orangeburg Calhoun Technical College in 2004 as a Certified Medical Assistant. I joined the Central Carolina Endodontics team in 2008 where I was cross-trained as a dental assistant. My job includes preparing patients for treatment, taking X-rays, sterilization of instruments, and assisting with treatment. I enjoy meeting new patients and reassuring them that everything will be fine. We try very hard to make our patients comfortable by creating a warm and friendly atmosphere.

I married my wonderful husband Randy in 2006. We have a handsome 12-year-old son Tydarius and a four-year-old Maltipoo, Snoopy. When I’m not working, I enjoy shopping, shopping, and more shopping! We also enjoy road trips and cruising to the Caribbean Islands.


Chairside Dental Assistant

I attended Medix School in Glen Burnie, MD, and have more than 30 years of experience in dental assisting. I joined the Central Carolina Endodontics team in 2009, where I assist the doctors with patient care and help the rest of my teammates whenever needed. I enjoy meeting so many different people, helping with their care, and making a difference in their lives by improving their oral health.

I have been married for 28 years and have two children. I love be outside, especially running, biking, hiking, and camping. My other hobbies include reading and cross-stitching.


Dental Assistant

I am the newest team member at Central Carolina Endodontics, having graduated from Midlands Technical College in 2016. The work we do here is very gratifying—knowing that I took part in a patient’s dental care and the patient left with highly satisfied results and a pleasant visit. Working with the doctors and the rest of the team is wonderful, as everyone shows teamwork and cares about the patients who come in the office.

During my off time, I enjoy surfing the net, shopping at the mall, and spending time with my family.


Office Manager

I studied business at OC Tech and joined Central Carolina Endodontics in 2007. I am responsible for administrative duties and ensuring that the office runs smoothly, which enables our doctors to concentrate on what’s truly important: our patients! I enjoy building relationships with our referring offices and ensuring that we are the best choice to meet their patients’ needs.

I am a mother to Amanda and Eric, and Granny to Dylan and Mason. I love spending time with them, especially cheering my grandsons on in sports. I also enjoy cooking, reading, and fishing.
