Mary : Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been working in the dental field for over 30 years. I was originally inspired to work in dentistry by my own dentist when I was in high school. I had a lot of dental work done, and spent a lot of time sitting in "the chair." My practice had such a wonderful atmosphere that I knew I wanted to work somewhere just like that someday. Our practice here reminds me of my childhood dental practice. We all have a good time here, and we all enjoy what we do. I have developed so many meaningful friendships with my patients, and I feel like each of them have become part of my family. I am originally from Germantown, Tennessee, and recently moved to Thompson's Station. My husband, Chuck, and I have three children: Katie, Lauren, and Chuck III. We also have a Weimaraner named Aubrey. I enjoy playing tennis, reading, and walking my dog.
Becki : Registered Dental Hygienist
I was born and raised in Bakersfield, California and moved to Brentwood just after completing High School. My mother is a dental hygienist, and from watching her interact with patients, I fell in love with the dental field too. After completing an Associates of Applied Science at Columbia State Community College, I attended the Dental Hygiene Program at Tennessee State University and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelors in Dental Hygiene. When I'm not working, my husband Calvin and I love going on hikes and exploring the outdoors with our pup, Oakley. We enjoy living in Franklin and both actively participate at our church and in the community.
Michele : Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been practicing hygiene for over 28 years. I love what I do and consider myself blessed to be a part of Cool Springs Family Dentistry! My husband and I have lived in Williamson County for 23 years. We have two daughters and 1 golden doodle. When not working, I enjoy serving at our church, working out, binge reading, and spending time with family.
Lauren : Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist since 2009. I started working part time at a local dental office while going to college and knew almost immediately that working in the dental field was something I had to do. After graduating college, my husband and I lived out of state for several years. We returned to Franklin in 2017 and I joined Cool Springs Family Dentistry in the summer of 2018. In my free time I love to travel, read, ride horses, and hang out with family and friends. I have been married to my husband, Jay, since 2006 and we have a son, Spencer.
Michelle : Front Office
I grew up in Minnesota, twenty minutes outside of Minneapolis ... you know, the land of 10,000 lakes. My husband and I moved to the Nashville area 25+ years ago to pursue his music, and we never left. Shortly after arriving here in Tennessee, I found myself working in the dental field... and I'm still here! We have a twelve year old son, Jacob, who is working hard towards his career as a professional gamer. My hobbies include crafting, gardening, cooking, and enjoying the early morning hours on my patio. I am very involved in my church, where I serve as an Elder and member of the choir.
Jessica : Registered Dental Assistant
I have lived right here in middle Tennessee for my entire life. My husband Tanner and I have been married since 2018 and recently moved out to Ashland City to spread out a bit. I enjoy spending my free time gardening and living a simple life with my husband, two dogs and two cats. The newest additions to our family include three goats, named Tater, Tot, and Lucky. I have been a dental assistant since 2006 and I still love it!
Jenny : Expanded Function Dental Assistant
I have been working in dentistry for 23 years and I became an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant in 2010. Teeth are my passion! I feel very lucky to be a part of such an amazing team here at Cool Springs Family Dentistry. My husband Robert and I live in Nolensville and love our community! We have two teenage boys, Jaden and Mason, who keep us very busy with their extracurricular activities. As a family, we love to travel and you can almost always find us in a gym watching Jaden play basketball.
Tammy : Expanded Function Dental Assistant
I grew up in NW Tennessee, but for the last 17 years my family and I have made middle Tennessee our home. My journey to dentistry began in the year 2000 when a friend asked me if I would be interested in working at her office a couple days each week. i agreed and from the very beginning, I knew I had found my career. In 2002 I obtained my license as a Registered Dental Assistant and in 2011 I obtained my Expanded Function certification. My time spent in the dental field has been so rewarding! I love to see a patient's face after a smile makeover -- not just the new smile, but the confidence they gain from it. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family (especially my grandson), painting, canoeing, and spending time at the lake.
