Renee is the newest Hygienist to join the Bradberry Practice.** (picture to come soon)
She will be writing up her story, soon to be shared with all of you! Renee has worked in the Pediatric Dentistry profession many years and is quite versed in her trade!
Janet, who is married to Dr. Bradberry, is a licensed Masters Social Worker who began working in the office only a year ago after a career in therapy, teaching, and homeschooling their son, Jonathan.
Janet is the liaison for our community involvement, school programs, social media, website administration, ordering supplies for the office and whatever else comes up! She is a people person and loves to talk to just about anyone but prefers to stay in the background at the office, letting the staff and Dr. Bradberry ( as a parent recently said ) "perform their magic"! Please let her or another staff member know if you'd love to feature your children in facebook, google or the website! We love to share our awesome little ones and what is going on in their lives....such as a "NO CAVITY" moment!
Michelle worked for Dr. Bradberry full time for more than 10 years. Although her daughter is grown and Michelle has made some changes, she works for Dr. Bradberry when needed as a fill in for our full time hygienists when needed. She attends the Hinman Dental meeting every year to learn new techniques of treatment and to stay abreast of new information that would be helpful to her in hygiene. Michelle and her husband Mike have a daughter in nursing school, and plans to be married next year. Their family pet is a fat orange tabby named Taz. Michelle likes reading, singing and dancing. She enjoys speaking to kindergarten and preschool children about their teeth. Michelle also participates in the "Love Loud" outreach program each year at her church which is aimed at helping those who are less fortunate. Michelle is looking forward to finding a new hobby now that her daughter is grown. She is thinking about maybe golfing with her husband! Michelle has a fun demeanor. Kids love to talk to her and they seem to really enjoy their time with her while she is cleaning their teeth and education them on how to keep their teeth healthy. Michelle has worked in dentistry for the past 25 years, with the last 20 years being spent in hygiene. She was inspired to go into hygiene while attending the Hinman dental meeting as a dental assistant. She said after seeing a "kid friendly" demonstration, she wanted to work with children as a hygienist. Michelle also usually has an uncanny way of winning the most coveted Christmas gifts in our mystery gift game!
Karen Delmastro is a kind, quiet (but don't let that fool you), friendly front desk scheduler who worked for Dr. Bradberry full time for over 10 years! She retired from full time work, but we are blessed to have her come in as needed, when the schedule is busy or when Romaine is out! In retirment, Karen plans to spend time with her wonderful husband and family, consisting of two children and six grandchildren! Karen loves to work on craft projects and sew. She even made Dr. Bradberry a special "retirement" gift...a colorful Georgia Tech blanket. She plans to stay active in her church and relax a bit! Karen loves working with children and families. Her goals are the same as Dr. Bradberry's, to take the best care of every child we have the privilege of serving in our office! We miss seeing Karen's smiling face in the office every day but we are glad that it's not goodbye....it's see you soon!
Oh, and Karen keeps "beary' well dressed, making all his clothing from scratch and she still makes wonderful cookies for the staff and Dr. Bradberry, bringing them each time she works....and sometimes when she misses us and comes for just to have lunch and a visit!
**Those of you who've been here a while have already seen her substituting for Romaine several times! Nice to keep it all in the Bradberry Pediatric Family!!
