Expanded Functions Dental Assistant
Lindsey’s love of dentistry began when she was a small child, as visiting the dentist was one of her favorite things to do. This led her to study Dental Assisting and Dental Careers Foundation, with extra training in expanded functions from Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). Lindsey started her career as an EFDA for an endodontist before coming to Bolt Family Dentistry, and with over five years of dental experience, we’re delighted to have her on our team. Lindsey takes care of cleaning and sterilizing operatories and equipment, assisting the doctor, ordering supplies for the office and taking notes for patients. Lindsey provides excellent patient care through all phases of treatment. Outside the office, she spends time with her husband and two daughters, enjoying all life has to offer.
Patient Care Coordinator
Attentive, creative, independent and conscientious, Emalee was delighted by the dentist from a young age. She knew a career in dentistry was right for her and received education at Kaplan College. Her knack for multitasking and problem solving led her to the front end, where she’s responsible for scheduling patients, answering questions, and filing insurance claims. Emalee enjoys the connection she’s able to make with each patient, and that her role at Bolt Family Dental allows her to build lasting relationships. To her, it’s the fact that everyone at the office genuinely loves their job that makes the care they provide unique, and the whole team is dedicated to making the office a happy place. Emalee partakes in arts and crafts, traveling, and attending a variety of concerts in her free time.
Wendy’s career in dentistry began in June of 1990, and with over 27 years of experience, she’s been taking care of our patients for the last five. Wendy graduated from East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, TN after knowing early on that she wanted a career in the healthcare field. The best part of her job is getting to know the patients, and that each hour brings forth a friendly new face. Wendy takes diagnostic x-rays, checks for gum disease, offers fluoride treatments, and keeps your smile sparkling and clean. Wendy’s level of experience blends perfectly with the office dynamics, as she brings tried and true methods of dentistry to the mix and loves learning new techniques from her coworkers. She’s a staple to her community, as she’s volunteered at various dental clinics, along with her church and other groups. At home, Wendy’s married to her high-school sweetheart, and loves spending her time with her husband, two daughters, the dog Gigi, and Oliver, their cat.
