Charlotte has been with our practice just about as long as Dr. Bradberry. It is a pleasure to have her on staff as she is passionate about treating children and performing at the highest of standards. She enjoys teaching dental health education in the elementary schools and loves sharing her knowledge with school aged kids. She is always up to date on the latest information in hygiene by attending continuing education classes such as the Hinman Dental Conference every year. Charlotte and her husband have one son and two cute and busy grandsons! When not spending time with the grandchildren, Charlotte likes to fly fish up in the North Georgia mountain streams. She loves to work in her garden and take walks. Charlotte is always interested in getting to know the children she works with . She interacts with each of her patients, asking them all kinds of questions about their dreams, desires and interests. Charlotte believes that pediatric dentistry is the best way to introduce dentistry to a child in a positive non-threatening environment. Charlotte has a secure feel to her personality that helps children to feel safe, which ultimately leads to a great visit and clean, healthy teeth.
Fran joined our practice after 22 years in general dentistry. She really enjoys the pediatric side and says that she definitely sees a great benefit in starting a child with a positive, enjoyable experience so that they become healthy and positive adult patients. She and her husband, Art, are fortunate to have all of their family living in the Atlanta area. They stay busy taking care of aging parents but find lots of time to attend their nieces and nephews football, baseball and ice skating events. Fran and her husband travel the countryside on the weekends weather permitting, on their Harley motorcycles! They are active in their church and enjoy the friends they have made there. After 15 years in pediatrics, Fran has not tired in her service to children through dental hygiene. She continues to educate herself by attending Hinman, taking online courses and renewing her CPR certification. Fran will be retiring in November to travel and spend more time with her husband. She will most likely still be seen when other staff are on vacation when she comes in to cover for them! So, it's not good bye to Fran! We'll see her a little less but she'll be around!
Michelle has been with Dr. Bradberry for more than 10 years. 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. Their family pets are a fat orange tabby named Taz and a grey tabby named Raz. 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 going off to college. 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.
Jenny moved with her family from Delaware to Georgia in 2005. She worked as a preschool teacher for eight years before deciding to become a dental assistant in 2008. All of Jenny's experience in the preschool environment, plus her knowledge in assisting has been a great asset in Dr. Bradberry's practice. She is a natural with the children. In her spare time, Jenny enjoys spending time with her husband, Mike, and their two sons Evan, who is in kindergarten this year and is quite a good baseball player and sports enthusiast! Then there's Brennan who just began preschool and loves just about everything active!! They also have big English Bulldog named Sadie. Jenny has a close family and is always spending time with them on the weekends. Jenny loves hockey and enjoys watching her husband when he plays, in his spare time. Jenny's laid back personality draws children to her and aids in a great beginning to the creation of a warm environment for the children. She attends seminars and continuing education classes each year to further prepare her for assisting.

After 10 years as our front desk lady, Karen has decided to retire. Don't worry though, Karen plans to come back and help out whenever we need her! (and will visit when she misses us)! She plans to spend time with her wonderful husband and family, consisting of two children and six grandchildren! Karen loves to do craft projects and sew. She even made Dr. Bradberry a special "retirement" gift from her....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 will miss 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! 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!!
