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 my spouse, family and friends, running, and spending time with my furry friends, Bear, Miles and Max.
Holly GarstCDACertified Dental Assistant
My name is Holly, I’ve been a dental assistant in this practice for 25 years. Seven years ago, Dr. Tzioros bought the practice from Dr. Lentz, and I stayed with her. My passion is helping people understand the importance of taking care of their teeth and having a great smile. I love my job, and I love being able to make people smile and have comfort when getting treatment. That is why I love being a dental assistant. I also love spending time with my two dogs, Jax and Gracie, going on the boat with my husband John and when possible having family over and cooking great meals!
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.
