Jessica

Dental Assistant

My job as a dental assistant is to tend to my patients’ needs, assist with infection control and assist the doctor with all dental procedures. I started working at Custom Dental of Newcastle in July 2020.

My favorite part of my role is educating patients about oral health. I love working with the Custom Dental team because everyone here is passionate about providing the best dental experience.

When I’m not at Custom Dental, I can be found at the gym, riding horses, or my motorcycle. I frequently disappear to the mountains. I’m an early riser and love breakfast food. Coffee is my love language. I have an eight-year-old German shepherd Abilene, and I’m currently continuing my education in dental hygiene!


Autumn

Dental Assistant

I attended Custom Dental Assisting School in 2020 and was excited to become a part of the Newcastle family shortly thereafter. I chose dentistry as a career because I did not take care of my teeth as well as I should have, and wanted to set a better example for my daughters. Now, I spend my days helping Dr. Jones during procedures, taking X-rays, and preparing patients for their appointments. My favorite part of my job is helping patients become more confident with their smile.

I have three daughters who participate in cheer, tumbling, and choir! When I’m not running around with them, I enjoy spending time with my family, the beach, and binge watching Netflix. 


Kari

Registered Dental Hygienist

I began my career in 2010 as a dental assistant, and furthered my education in 2013. I hold a Bachelor of Nutritional Science degree in Allied Health, as well as a Bachelor of Dental Hygiene degree, from Oklahoma State University. My role here at Custom Dental involves providing dental cleanings and education to prevent oral diseases.

Hands down, the best part of my job is the patients and being able to help them regain confidence in their smile. There is no better feeling when someone comes back in six months with a whole new outlook on their oral health.

I have been married to Peyton for almost four years and am the proud momma of our seven-year-old boxer, Asher. I spend my free time doing things affiliated with my side business (Bellame) selling luxury beauty products or partaking in any kind of workout class: cycling, HIIT, yoga, and barre to name a few. We love to travel any chance we get. In fact, it is my goal to go to every state in the US!


Kara

Dental Assistant

I attended the Custom Dental’s assisting school in 2015 and joined CD Newcastle shortly after graduating. I assist Dr. Jones with all aspects of our patients’ care and do my best to ensure their comfort. The best part of my job is giving so many people new, healthier, more beautiful smiles! At CD Newcastle, we are not just a team, but a work family as well!

I graduated in 2011 from Choctaw High School in Choctaw, OK. I met my husband Derek in 2013 and we were married in 2017. Our family also includes two cats and three dogs. I enjoy being outdoors, from noodling and fishing, to hunting. I am a very family oriented; I truly enjoy spending quality time with my family.


MaryEllen

Office Manager

I began my career as a dental assistant more than 20 years ago, and for the past 16 years, I’ve been working in the administrative side of dentistry. By providing excellent customer service, case presentation, and financial coordination, my goal is to help a patient achieve a dental goal that they thought may have not been attainable.

I’ve been proud to be a part of the Custom Dental team since 2017, working for people who genuinely want us to treat every patient like they are family. I absolutely love this group because of their honesty, commitment, and continued evolution—that is irreplaceable! I don’t even mind the commute!

I have been married to my best friend Larry for a long time! He has blessed me with seven beautiful children, Larry Jr., Eric, Devin, Thalia, Thayia, Thamia, and my biggest surprise of them all Jameson, as well as seven grandchildren. My hobbies include spending as much time with my family as possible. I tell my family tomorrow is not a promise so be a kind human today and share your blessings!
