I have been in the dental field for about 20 years and worked with Dr. Duffin since 2012. Patient experience is one of my priorities and I work hard to ensure they feel comfortable in the office. I enjoy helping and educating patients. In my spare time I like being outdoors and spend time with my daughter, family and friends.

Ahnaise OfficeManager

Ahnaise-Office Manager

With 23 years of experience as a Dental Administrator I believe in the power of a confident, healthy smile and work tirelessly to provide exceptional care to each patient. I am happily married and a proud parent of three beautiful children. In addition to my career in dentistry, I own a custom cake business, Just Be Sweet Cakes. In addition to baking, I enjoy reading, retail therapy, napping and spending time with my family. I am committed to ensuring that everyone I work with leaves feeling valued, cared for and with a smile they are proud to share.

Sandra Receptionist


My dental career actually began about 12 years ago by earning my certification in Medical Billing and Coding. Shortly after that, I decided to act on a suggestion from my son (a dentist in Louisville, KY) to fine tune that mix of knowledge specifically to dentistry. I liked the idea and did earn my Dental Assisting licenses. The journey of working in this field has allowed me the privilege of working here, in my opinion, the best dentist and office family that anyone could hope for.

Yoselin Receptionist


I discovered an early passion for caring, both for people's smiles and for the loyal companionship of my furry friend Frida. With a cup of coffee in hand, I find solace and joy in the simple moments spent with loved ones. Whether it's exploring new coffee shops or simply lounging at home with Frida by my side, I value the importance of connection and making memories with those who matter most. As I continues to pursue my passion for dentistry and embrace life's simple pleasures, I remain steadfast in my dedication to spreading warmth, kindness, and the occasional caffeine buzz wherever I goes.

Monique Receptionist


I have been happily married for 24 years. I am the mother of three handsome boys. In my free time I like to watch movies, read, style hair and create art.
