Jackie

Office Manager

In 1987, I started working in the dental field right here at Dayton Hart, DMD. It is a great office, where I can meet many amazing people. I love making them feel welcome and comfortable. I expertly handle all practice issues, from scheduling to finances, with an eye to detail. It is my pleasure to find our patients treatment times that fit perfectly into their schedules and payment plans that allow them to breathe easily. I believe that our work is very important for happy living and money should never be a factor in receiving the best dental care.

I am married to Dr. Hart. We like our household busy and full. We have three sons, named John, Jeff, and Zachary and two daughters, Claire and Hannah. We also have a dog named Gizmo, and a cat named Zane. Our African Grey Parrot and Moluccan cockatoo are also very special to me. In addition to working here, I am also a certified massage therapist.


Terry

Hygienist

I was so happy to join our practice in 1990. I brought ten years of experience with me, and boy was it useful! Every day, I feel like I find something new at work to be thankful for. Whether cleaning your teeth, taking X-rays, testing and analyzing your pH or bacteria levels, screening for TMJ, or giving homecare and diet instructions, my work is always interesting. Meeting you and helping you achieve the best oral hygiene are what I love most about being a hygienist. I want you to feel comfortable in our very capable hands.

I feel that life is wonderful and that I am truly blessed. I am happily married. My husband Bruce and I have three sons: Bradley, Zachary, and Casey. We enjoy boating, grilling, and spending time with friends. We also attend the Abiding Love Fellowship Church.


Melissa

Hygienist and Dental Assistant

I started in the dental field in 1988 and gladly joined Dr. Hart’s team in 2003. I love the people I work with and all of our patients. I consider them family. I enjoy helping others, which makes my job here the perfect fit for me. I clean teeth, order supplies, sterilize equipment, take X-rays, and do whatever is needed to assist Dr. Hart with patient treatments. I truly do love working here.

I am a single mother, and I live for the summer time. It is the perfect season for my favorite activities, like boating, being outdoors, and just hanging out with friends. I also enjoy sitting down with a good book.


Leslie

Front Desk

I have worked with Dr. Hart and the rest of our team for the past ten years. I can be found working at our front desk, where I will help schedule your appointments, check you in and out, and take care of your accounts. I love meeting new people and welcoming them into our practice. I can’t wait to meet you and your family!

I have been married to my best friend David for 16 years. We have two daughters, Madalyn and Madyson, a dog named Pepper, a cat named Fiona, and a fish named Fish. I like spending time with my family, shopping with my girls, and going to the movies. My girls keep me going with band, archery, soccer, and scouting. We enjoy going to Friday night football games to cheer on our Foley Lions and our Mighty Band from Lion Land. We also attend the Foley First Baptist Church.

Front Desk

It is an honor to be a part of Dr Hart’s team.  I love working with this amazing team because they have such a nurturing and loving staff. You will fall in love with them. I know that I did. Most importantly, I get to meet amazing people each and every day.

I am a single mother of three beautiful girls: Samantha, Catherine, and Breanna. We enjoy relaxing on the beautiful white beaches, boating, going to the movies, and being outdoors.
