Meet Our Dental Team Mercerville
A Dental Family Who Has Been Together for Decades
Dr. Lavery is proud to work alongside a phenomenal team of dental assistants, hygienists, insurance professionals, and front desk staff, some of whom have been with him for over two decades. Together, they work hard to make our office welcoming and warm, and they always strive to build genuine connections with everyone who enters our practice doors. We invite you to learn a little more about our consistent and caring team by reading their short biographies below.
Tina, Office Manager
Tina has worked with Dr. Lavery for over a decade, and she always enjoys seeing patients leave happy with beautiful smiles. She brings a very high level of enthusiasm to our office, and this positive energy is contagious with both her coworkers and patients. Tina is married and has two children. Outside of work, she enjoys making memories with family, shopping, and spending time with her dog, Maddie. She also has two “grandpups,” Rex and Marty!
Bridget, Dental Hygienist
Bridget has over 25 years of experience as a dental hygienist and received her degree from Brevard Community College in 1997 where she graduated with distinction as a member of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society. Bridget has always been known for her gentle yet thorough approach with her patients and enjoys seeing progress in their oral health as she builds lasting relationships with them.
Bridget has been married for over 30 years, and she has three sons that make her very proud. In her personal time, she likes nothing more than being with her family, which includes her beloved dog, Maximus. She also likes nature photography, camping, and baking.
Edy, Dental Assistant/ Insurance Coordinator
Edith (“Edy”) has had a wide range of experience in the dental field. She has been with Dr. Lavery since 1999 and participates in frequent training to further enhance her dental assisting and office administration skills. With all the changes that constantly take place in the world of insurance, she finds it challenging and rewarding to keep up with the most accurate information so she can deliver it to our patients.
When Edy is not at work, she enjoys traveling, boating, and spending time with her husband and granddaughter. She is proud of her Panamanian heritage and is fluent in Spanish.
Courtney, Dental Hygienist
Courtney is driven by her passion for creating and saving beautiful smiles. She has an associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degree in dental hygiene as well as her local anesthesia license. A wife, mother to a baby girl, and cat mom of two tuxedos, she likes to spend her downtime working out or reading (especially if the book is written by Nicholas Sparks).
Isabel, Dental Assistant
Isabel has worked with Dr. Lavery for over 20 years, and she enjoys helping patients conquer their fear of dentistry by creating a fun and relaxed atmosphere. She truly loves working in the dental field because of the relationships she has developed with our patients and her coworkers.
Back at home, Isabel enjoys spending time with her husband of 35+ years. She has two wonderful daughters as well as twin granddaughters! Originally from Panama, she is bilingual and is happy to help translate for Spanish-speaking patients.
