Meet Our Staff
Diana has been a dental hygienist for over 28 years and enjoys every day with her patients and coworkers. “My goal each day is to educate our patients to achieve better dental health, therefore achieve better overall physical health.” Diana has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill and continues to educate herself in order to provide the latest techniques and technology for our patients.
Diana is originally from Wilmington, NC but has lived her in Wake County for the last 22 years with her two college age sons.
Mary Jo graduated with her degree in dental hygiene from Santa Fe College in 2013. A Florida native, newlywed, and new resident to North Carolina she has fallen in love with our state, office and dental team. Each day she hopes to put a smile on her patients faces and educate them on why oral health is just as important as physical health. She is passionate about her faith, her family, weightlifting/nutrition, and of course-cats and coffee!
