I am a Marietta native. I’ve been working exclusively in pediatric dentistry for over 5 years and enjoy working with children. I am happily married to my awesome husband, Jose. On my free time I enjoy thrifting, spending time with my husband, walking my husky Zena, and I love to catch a Braves game with family and friends.

I have been in the pediatric dentistry field for more than 8 years, from working chairside with the doctor, to working the front desk, and even having hospital privileges at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. I enjoy working with children and making them feel that they are welcomed and safe! Aside from dentistry, I enjoy playing in co-ed soccer leagues, singing karaoke with family and friends, or at home watching Marvel movies. “Excelsior!” -Stan Lee

I’ve been working in the dentistry field for over 10 years and love the opportunity to be able to work with families and their children. My focus is to provide a thorough and gentle cleaning to every patient. As a mother of three I understand the importance of quality care and trust. On my free time I’m a busy mom spending any chance I get with my family. We enjoy family hikes and bike rides around town.

Britni Bassett, RDH

I have a true passion for working with children, and everything teeth! I’ve been in pediatric dentistry since 2005, and received my RDH degree from Georgia Perimeter College in 2011. In my free time I enjoy tennis, biking and cruising, and above all else, quality time with my husband and baby girl, Ellie. My favorite moments as a hygienist are when patients come in apprehensive, but by the end of the appointment they are having so much fun that they don’t want to leave. My goal is for my patient to always leave with a smile, and my philosophy is to treat every child as if they were my own.


“I am proud to say that I’ve been working in this pediatric dental practice for over 14 years. As a children’s specialist in dental hygiene, I take great pride in my care for the little ones! I am a native Georgian, born in Canton, and am now living in Kennesaw with my husband and son. On my free time, I prefer spending quality time with my family and Dog : ) “


“I’ve had the great privilege of working my entire hygiene career at what I know to be the best pediatric dental office in Metro Atlanta, including Smyrna, Vinings, and Marietta. I began working here at this practice over 19 years ago as a dental assistant and front office assistant. Then, in 1998, I furthered my education and earned a degree in Dental Hygiene. I grew up in Marietta and now reside in Hiram with my husband and daughter. I enjoy traveling, sports, and spending time with family and friends.”
