Our Dental Family

At CRE8 Smile Studio, we believe that the foundation of a great smile begins with a great team. Our dedicated professionals are passionate about providing the best dental care in a warm, welcoming environment. We take pride in our team’s expertise, kindness, and commitment to creating the best patient experience possible.


Lisa, Office Manager

Lisa is our office manager and has been with the office since 2004. She loves seeing our patients in the office and all over town! It is always fun catching up with the patients when they come for their appointments. Lisa has a bachelor’s in nutrition from UNF and to keep herself busy in her off hours, she is also a licensed Realtor. Her downtime is spent reading, learning to play chess, catering to her rescue dog Charlie’s whims, talking to her Senegal parrot, Pete and spending time watching the latest best TV shows with her husband, Wayne.


Todd, Appt. Coordinator

Hey there!  I’m Todd, your friendly neighborhood Appointment Coordinator since September 2022. 

Now, here’s the twist – the Doc,  She just happens to be my sister. Bet you didn’t see that coming! She’s not just an amazing doctor, but she’s also the coolest boss ever. Working with family might sound like a sitcom, but trust me, it’s the best gig in town.

When I’m not calling to remind you of your appointment, you can catch me in my element – live on YouTube, streaming the latest and greatest in gaming. 

So, whether you’re looking to book an appointment or just want to hang out in the gaming realm, I’m your guy. Let’s make every moment count – both in the office and online!
