We are so grateful for the incredible staff at Young Smiles Pediatric Dentistry. Each member of our team is focused on one goal: Caring for the children we serve. This group of dedicated professionals LOVES working with children!

Maggi grew up just down the road in Alexandria. When she’s not cuddling her chocolate lab Gus, she loves going with her husband to grab tacos at Montoya’s in Fort Mitchell and then heading to the AMC Newport on the Levee to catch a Disney movie. Maggi says that if she had one superpower it would be to fly, but we believe that she already has an out-of-this-world ability to make children smile.

Denise’s life is all about kids. Not only does she love working with our patients, but she also gets plenty of practice spending time with her five grandchildren–and an active labradoodle name Bowie. Denise is from Florence and enjoys spending her time reading and shopping. She says her dream superpower would be to eat anything she wants and never gain a pound, but we think Denise is doing just fine!

Favorite Quote: “Work hard so you can shop harder.”

Jena is loved by our kids! She grew up in Independence. She enjoys reading, camping at AJ Jolly, visiting the Newport Aquarium, and cuddling with her dog Hank. One of Jena’s favorite cartoons is the PowerPuff girls. She says her choice of a superpower would be invisibility, but we’re very happy we get to see Jena every day!

Favorite Quote: “She is clothed in strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future!”

Tammy loves everything about working at Young Smiles – the patients, her co-workers, and Dr. Alex. She grew up in Hebron. Tammy has two children, three dogs and enjoys staying active. When she isn’t spending her weekends kayaking or boating, she takes her nieces to the Florence Pool every opportunity she gets. Growing up, Tammy loved watching Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck cartoons, which may be part of the reason she’s so fun today!

Favorite Quote: “Is it Taco Tuesday yet?” 

Dylan grew up in Covington, Kentucky, and is currently engaged to the love of his life, Rebecca. In his free time, Dylan enjoys playing basketball, video games, or spending time with his dog Bear. His all-time favorite movie is Toy Story, and if he could have any superpower, Dylan would choose the ability to read minds. He loves working at our dental practice because he finds joy in working with kids.

Salene grew up in Piner, KY and is currently married to Tyler. Together, they have one son named Isaac. In her free time, Salene enjoys doing puzzles and building legos with her son. She also has a pitbull named Dakota (or Fatty) and loves spending time at Green Acres Park with her family. Salene’s favorite movie is Toy Story 1. If she could have any superpower, she would choose super speed so she could get to the beach twice as fast. Salene loves working at our dental practice because of the positive atmosphere and attitude of her coworkers.

Favorite Quote:  “Soul full of sunshine.”

Kelcie was raised in Dry Ridge, Kentucky, and is currently in a relationship with her boyfriend, Michael. She loves spending her free time with her loved ones, relaxing, and traveling. Kelcie is also a huge fan of shopping, and loves visiting the aquarium, going bowling, and hitting the gym at Planet Fitness. She has three pets – Roya, a Border Collie; Maivey, a Black Lab; and Vable, a German Shepherd. If she could have any superpower, Kelcie would choose the ability to read minds – both human and animal. She loves working at our dental practice because she feels like she’s part of a family.
