Meet the Team

Bertha Thomas

Since 2002 Bertha has been taking care of the behind-the-scenes part of our dental office. As the CEO and an office manager, sometimes her jobs such as working with the finances are a little less than glamorous. However, they are absolutely vital, and so is she!

From keeping track of costs to working with marketing, Bertha doesn’t just keep the office alive; she keeps it thriving, thanks in part to her extensive education, administrative certification, and experience in the dental industry.

Bertha has four granddaughters of whom she is immensely proud. In fact, the oldest was recently accepted into Coastal Alabama College with a softball scholarship, the second oldest is at the top of her class in school, the next oldest is very active in competitive cheerleading and other school activities, and the youngest is a very gifted toddler. When she isn’t spending time with her family, Bertha likes to take a little me-time by shopping or traveling.


Sherrelle Watts

Sherrelle has been a treatment coordinator for us since 2013, and we honestly couldn’t do without her. She’s a natural when it comes to meeting new people and helping them feel comfortable!

From the moment you walk through our door, you’ll get both amazing customer service and sound financial guidance from Sherrelle. Her number one professional goal is to help each patient get everything they need from their dental visit.

At home, Sherrelle has four kids who keep her on her toes. Aliyah is twelve, Lauren is seven, and the twins Devin and Justice are four years old now. She loves shopping, traveling, and making as many amazing memories as possible with her family.


Faye Gatson

Faye has been one of our excellent dental assistants since 2015. She is a people person through and through. Whether you’re a staff member or patient, she will always do her absolute best to make you feel welcome and comfortable in our office!

Faye graduated from Trenholm State Technical College with the professional goal of helping everyone she can to fulfill their dental needs. We’re glad to have her here with us as she accomplishes that goal!

When she isn’t at the office, Faye loves to spend her time reading, cooking, shopping, visiting other places, and keeping up with her favorite TV shows. She is also very dedicated to her church and enjoys singing in the choir.


Erica Shellese Clayton

Erica has been with our office as a Registered Dental Hygienist since 2010. She brings incredible compassion to our office, making it a comfortable environment for both patients and staff. With her around, coming to work is always a great experience!

Erica also brings a number of unique skills to the table. Erica is fluent in Spanish, and she has over thirteen years of experience working with compromised patients and very young children. This combination of skills allows our office to accommodate for a wide variety of patients and truly give back to our community.

Outside of work, Erica stays quite busy. Her three sons keep her on her toes at all times. She is a certified Pilates instructor and also loves to serve in her community, go hiking, travel, and spend time with her family.


Christy Thornell

Christy joined our practice in 2018, but she has worked in the field of dentistry since 2003. All of that experience makes her not only welcome in our office but a vital part of it.

Christy has many strengths when it comes to her work as a dental hygienist. Three of those strengths that we see in play, again and again, are her gentle hand with patients, the sincerity with which she does everything, and her unwavering attention to detail. If she decides to do something, she’ll do it right.

When she isn’t changing lives through dentistry, Christy is very dedicated to her family and loves to spend time making memories with them!


Mary Reese

Mary has been with our office since 2018. As a registered dental hygienist, Mary carries a great deal of responsibility and does an amazing job! This includes working individually with patients during cleanings and x-rays.

Mary is a real team player and always works hard to make sure that what needs to be done gets done. This not only helps our office run like clockwork, but it also makes our staff feel like family.

Outside of work, Mary’s number one favorite pastime is getting comfy with a good book.


Jaderica Anderson

Jaderica works for us as a dental assistant. She recently attended Trenholm State’s dental assisting program and hopes to earn her associate’s degree soon.

She makes an amazing addition to our dental office by always keeping a positive attitude and giving her all to everything she does. Although she only recently joined our staff, we hope to have her here for a long time to come!

Outside of work, Jaderica is a very dedicated student who spends as much time as possible learning and bettering herself.
