Amy RockettRDHDental Hygienist
I was born and raised in Charlotte North Carolina. After graduating high school in 2000 I attended Central Piedmont Community College. I was accepted into the dental assisting program at CPCC in August of 2004. I started my internship with Dr. Lentz for dental assisting in March of 2005 and graduated as a certified dental assistant in July 2005. I was immediately accepted into the dental hygiene program at CPCC. I continued to work for Dr. Lentz and Dr. Tzioros while I was in hygiene school and after receiving my hygiene license in 2009 I extended my hours to full time. I was lucky enough to be able to stay with Dr. Tzioros when she bought the practice in 2011. I absolutely love working with my patients and getting to know each and every one of them. I enjoy educating my patients and coming up with a home care regime that fits their individual needs.
When I'm not working at the office I'm busy working on my most important job, being a mom. I currently reside in Charlotte with my two daughters Zoie and Kenzie.
Diane LadrieRDHDental Hygienist
My name is Diane Ladrie and I have been a dental hygienist at Dr. Tzioros office since September 2013. I am a graduate of the CPCC Dental Hygiene program and completed my studies with an Association in Applied Science. I was born and raised in South Florida and moved to North Carolina in 1980.
While dentistry has always been a passion in my life, I did take some time away from dentistry to own my own business in marketing and screenprinting. I enjoyed the experience but had a burning desire to get back into dentistry. I have enjoyed finding an office that has the passion for taking care of each and every patience with caring hands.
When I am not working, I have many interests that include spending time with family and friends, running, CrossFit and spending time with my furry friends, Bear and Max.
Holly GarstCDACertified Dental Assistant
I was born in Concord, NC in 1965. After high school I moved to Germany where I was trained in dental assisting with the 7th Medical Command Unit and the Red Cross. In 1986, I returned to Concord NC, and started a career with a local dentist as a DA2. In 1993, I was hired by Dr. Debora Lentz, DDS. In 1994, I challenged the North Carolina State Board to become a certified dental assistant and became certified. I continued my employment as a certified dental assistant with Dr. Lentz until her retirement in 2011. In 2005, Dr. Heidi Tzioros, DDS joined our team and eventually bought the practice in 2011, where I continue my employment as a CDA. I enjoy helping people and love all my team members. After working hours, I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, cooking, and spending time at the lake, but most of all, I enjoy my passion for dentistry!
Rhonda NashCDACertified Dental Assistant
Crystal BarbeeOffice Administrator
I have been in the dental field for 16 years. I have experience as a dental assistant and front office receptionist/secretary, and coordinating financial treatment plans for patients. I enjoy the dental field because there are always lots of new areas to learn and there is never any treatments the same. I have always lived in a small town, attended a small high school and college, and love the small family dentistry atmosphere where you get to know patients and their families. Some of my favorite things I enjoy doing outside of work are being a mom, spending time with my family, serving as a Sunday school teacher and choir leader with kids in my church, and reading Karen Kingsbury novels.
