We Treat Our Patients Like Family


Front Office

In 1987, I was a patient of Dr. Wayne Mahar when he asked if I would be interested in becoming his dental assistant. I took the job and ended up making it my career. In 2011, Dr. Sprang took over Dr. Mahar’s practice and hired me to continue on, at first as a chair-side assistant and then later I moved into the front office. In my free time, I enjoy golfing, reading, gardening, and traveling.



I grew up locally and graduated from Fredricktown High School. In 2012 I graduated from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. I joined Mount Vernon Dental in February 2015. Dental hygiene offers me the unique
opportunity to build patient relationships. When I am not working, I enjoy the outdoors as a volunteer 4H advisor as well as hunting and fishing with my family and our dog, Spook.



I’ve worked at Mount Vernon Dental since October 2018. I grew up in Michigan and graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy in May 2012. I became a hygienist to help people be confident with their smiles. In my free time, I like to travel with my family and play with my huskies.


Expanded Functions Dental Assistant

I’ve been with Mount Vernon Dental since April 2019. After becoming a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) in January 2021, I attended Stark State College where I completed my Expanded Functions Dental Assistant (EFDA) schooling in May 2022. I enjoy working in dentistry because my job as an EFDA allows me to be creative. In my spare time, I enjoy working on home projects, gardening, and spending time with my husband, Craig, and our two dogs, Bowie and Garth.


Front Office

I’ve been in the dental field since 2002 with experience in chair-side assisting and front office. While in high school,
I completed my internship with my childhood dentist where I quickly became interested in dentistry. I joined Mount Vernon Dental in May 2022, where I help patients schedule their appointments and better understand their insurance. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two kids, trying new recipes, and watching true crime shows



I am a 2008 graduate of The Ohio State University. I started working at Mount Vernon Dental in January of 2011. During my career as a dental hygienist, I have enjoyed the way patients smile after their teeth are cleaned. In my free time, I enjoy living on a cattle farm and spending time with my family.



“I’m a lifelong, Knox County resident. I graduated from Mount Vernon High School in 1991. I decided to go to college later in life and graduated from The Ohio State University with my Dental Hygiene degree in 2009. I love the work I do and I get great satisfaction in helping others. I enjoy spending my free time with my hubby, family, friends, and my fur baby.”


Dental Assistant

I developed an interest in dentistry and decided to get training to become a dental assistant. I graduated from the First Impressions dental assisting program in the fall of 2022 and joined Mount Vernon Dental in October 2022. Dentistry is ever-changing and expanding. There are so many opportunities within the dental field. One of my favorite things to do in my free time is go hiking with my husband and dogs.
