    Our staff represents a team of highly talented, caring professionals. Each member brings extensive experience in clinical procedures, computer and digital technology, communications, and laboratory arts to you or your child's orthodontic needs.  All of our clinical assistants are state certified in expanded orthodontic duties.

    We’re proud to say that our current team of professionals averages 15 years working with Amley McEntire Orthodontics!  Our staff members have chosen to work in our office for one simple reason - they enjoy helping people of all ages undergo the life changing experience of orthodontics.

    This is what makes our staff smile.



    I’ve proudly worked at Amley McEntire for 34 years. I enjoy getting to know our patients and ensuring they look forward to their appointments. After my many years here, I love running into patients all over the city. The doctors and staff make my job fun too!

    I obtained a degree from St. Petersburg College, and I am a Certified Dental Assistant and Certified X-Ray Technician.

    I am a member of the Starkey Road Baptist Church and a college advisor. Married for 37 years, my husband and I have two daughters with three practically perfect grandkids! I enjoy traveling and mentoring college students, as well as walking, biking, the beach and boating.



    I’ve been working at Amley McEntire since July 2013 and love the atmosphere here. The doctors and staff have great working relationships and of course, amazing patients!

    I obtained a B.A. in Communications from Cedarville University in Ohio, and am also a grade 7 – 12 certified English teacher.

    Outside of the office, I’m a high school youth leader at Starkey Road Baptist Church and a Mothers of Pre-Schoolers (M.O.P.S.) mentor. My family and I love to travel, especially cruising, and visiting other family. We frequently participate in mission trips with our church. I’m originally from Ohio but enjoy living in Florida – done with Midwest winters!



    I’ve worked in the Amley McEntire office for nearly 30 years. I enjoy getting to know my patients and watching them grow. Knowing I helped them achieve their best smile is very rewarding.

    I attended Dental Assisting School and obtained an Invisalign Certification. 

    For more than 19 years, I have taught Awana at my church. I am a 4-H leader and worked with horses for the handicapped. I also sponsor a third-world child.

    In my spare time, I ride horses and train my dog in obedience and potentially as a therapy animal.



    I’ve worked in orthodontics for 16 years and with Amley McEntire for almost two years. I enjoy watching the transformation in patients – the look on their face when they see their new smile is priceless!

    I have an Orthodontic Expanded Duties Certification.

    Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with my son,  taking family trips to the beach and camping.



    I've been an orthodontic assistant for 8 years, and I joined the Amley McEntire team this spring.   I have my orthodontic expanded duties certificate. 

    I love getting to know our patients and seeing how their self confidence grows throughout their treatment process. I especially love the huge smile on our patients' faces the first time they look in the mirror after getting their braces off.

    My husband and I have a basset hound named Sugarbear and my husband is Active Duty Air Force. When I am not working I enjoy traveling, gardening, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
