Office Manager and Receptionist
Hello and welcome to Raleigh Dental! I have been part of the team since 1985 when Dr. Whitley, my brother, opened the practice. We’ve built a reputation for patient-centered care, starting with each person’s first call. I enjoy working with and getting to know patients, ensuring they have positive visits, and helping them with their needs. I greet patients, check them in, and update their paperwork. At the end of a visit, I check in to make sure everything went well. I also schedule appointments and handle insurance processing.
I share my life with four Jack Russell terriers; I’d rescue more if I could! I love supporting my young nephews and nieces in their activities. They’re involved with baseball, basketball, dance, and gymnastics, so there’s always something happening.
Dental Assistant II
Hi! I started working at Raleigh Dental in 2005, when I first entered the dental field. I’m now a Dental Assistant II and have earned my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, too. I enjoy spending my days with our wonderful patients, supporting, educating, and encouraging them to take control of their oral health. I assist the doctors, chairside, during procedures. At the same time I talk with our patient about what we’re doing. I also help Denise at the front desk, when time allows.
My husband and I just welcomed our first child into the world. My family goes to the beach every chance we get and love spending time with our dogs, too.
Hello! I’m looking forward to meeting you and helping you attain and keep your healthiest, most wonderful smile. I’ve been working in the field since 1995 and found my home at Raleigh Dental in 2000. I’ll work one-to-one with you, examining your mouth for signs of dental disease, reviewing your health history, and providing gentle cleanings. A lot of our time together will be spent talking about your oral health. I’ll teach you the best way to keep your teeth and gums and healthy so you have a lifetime of beautiful smiles!
I’ve been married for almost 30 years and have two teenagers, as well as a cat and a dog. When not working, I enjoy gardening and bird watching. I love sports, especially cheering for Ohio State!
Hi and welcome to our office! I’ve been a dental hygienist for more than 40 years and joined the Raleigh Dental team in 1998. We truly have the most amazing patients: I’m excited you’ll be joining our dental family! I’ll help you develop great oral health and a smile you love to share. During visits, while I review your dental and overall health, check your mouth for signs of disease, and clean your teeth, I’ll teach you. I want you to make healthy decisions and be enthusiastic about caring for your smile.
I’ve been happily married for more than 40 years. We have two sons and five grandchildren; my dog is our child-at-home, now. I love to travel and enjoy time with my church family.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Hello! I’m proud to be part of such a friendly office, where everyone is committed to providing individualized attention to our patients. We have a welcoming environment, where people quickly feel at home. I started working in the field in 1987 and became part of our team in 1994. I’ll work with you during your dental hygiene appointments, cleaning your teeth, delivering preventive care, and educating you. I want you to understand the role a healthy mouth plays in overall health and how to keep both in great shape!
When not working, I enjoy time with my husband, three grown children, and extended family. My oldest daughter is married and lives out of the state, my middle daughter lives in Raleigh, and our son, the youngest, is going to NCSU next year. I enjoy working out and volunteering both in and out of my synagogue.
Dental Assistant II
Welcome to Raleigh Dental! I began my career in dentistry in the 80’s and joined our office in 1989 as an assistant to Dr. Whitley. Ours is a positive, friendly practice where we put patients’ comfort as our foremost concern. We want to make dentistry a fun, painless experience and to help people become enthusiastic about caring for their smiles.
I’ve been married since 1976. My husband and I are active members of the North Carolina Donor Association. I enjoy spending time in my yard and garden, watching nature. I also enjoy caring for the many plants and animals I’ve accumulated over the years. I’m excited to volunteer with a Wake County wildlife rehab organization, working with orphaned baby animals and preparing them to be released back into the wild.
