Administration / Assistant
I have had the privilege to serve in many aspects of dentistry. I have enjoyed working with Dr. Hughart since August of 2005. I relocated from Florida to accept a position as a dental assistant with Dr. Hughart before moving into my current position as an administrative assistant. I have 2 great sons, a dog, a cat and 2 beautiful granddaughters. We enjoy living in East Tennessee and now call it “home”. Most patients are apprehensive about root canal therapy, rest assured, we will do our best to make your treatment as easy as possible.
