Healthy Smiles from Our Family to Yours
I was born and raised in Rockingham County, and grew up in Broadway, where I currently reside with my husband, Nathan, and our two children, Makayla and Levi. I attended Massanutten Technical Center and graduated from the dental assisting class in 2003 and have been working in dentistry ever since! I truly enjoy every aspect of dentistry and working chair side with Dr. Smallwood allows my range of care to be diversified each day. I love helping to create a fun and inviting atmosphere for children by taking any fear out of dentistry. Each and every appointment has something different involved - which makes my love for dentistry grow!
When not at the office, I love creating and constructing craft and primitive projects. I love Redskins football and cheer them on whenever they are playing! I absolutely love going to the beach with my family during the summer to relax and spend quality time together whenever we are able. We have three dogs, Cooper, Lily and Daisy, and one cat named Paisley. They are just like part of the family. One day, we hope to have a small farm so I can become a "chicken mom"!
I have had the pleasure of working at Smallwood and McKown-Smallwood Family, Cosmetic, & Sleep Dentistry since March of 2013. I love helping to create an anxiety-free atmosphere and experience for patients of all ages. It is so rewarding helping those who have dental anxiety, like myself, overcome their fears to better their oral health and achieve the smile they want and deserve!
I reside in Mount Sidney with my husband, Anthony, and our daughter, Cora. We have two miniature schnauzers and have shared the love for that special breed with our family who now have miniature schnauzers as well! We absolutely love warm weather and spend most of our time gardening. We enjoy canning and trying something new in the garden each year! When we want to relax, we love to spend our time in the water - either at the lake or the beach! During football season you will find us cheering on the Steelers!

Hours and Directions
I was born and raised in Shenandoah County where I currently reside in Mount Jackson, with my boyfriend Matthew, our dog Sadie, and cat Nugget! I obtained an associates degree at Blue Ridge Community College in 2016 and then attended Massanutten Technical Center, where I obtained a certificate in Dental Assisting in 2017. Since joining Smallwood and McKown-Smallwood Family, Cosmetic, & Sleep Dentistry in May of 2017, I have gotten the pleasure of assisting both doctors and working with the hygienists and front office team. Each experience has expanded my knowledge in dentistry and made my love for it grow even more! I take pride in helping comfort children as they tackle their first cleanings and restorative appointments, and helping to reassure adults that they are in great hands and will receive the best possible dental care while at our office!
Outside of the office you will find me enjoying the great outdoors all year round! My hobbies include hunting, fishing, kayaking ,gardening and soaking up the sun at the beach. When not out adventuring I love nothing more than spending time with my family and friends.
