Meet our Team

Tiffany Thomas (Office Manager) I’m a sweet southern-belle from Alabama, who loves the outdoors. I have been in dentistry since 1998 and graduated dental assisting school in 2002. I fell in love with pediatric dentistry and thought that was all I’d ever do. Of course that was my plan, and we all know what happens when man plans…To my surprise, I’ve transitioned into general dentistry and office management and I’m loving it all the same. What I enjoy most about my job is making you smile and giving the best TLC with a little southern charm. When I’m not in the office my husband, Darius, and my three girls, J’Niya, London and Kylie keep me very busy!

Denise Frew (Registered Dental Hygienist) Denise comes to our office with 23 years experience. She started out as a dental assistant, then went back to school and completed her education and training as a dental hygienist in 1999. As a child she had a great fear and anxiety about going to the dentist. 

Today, she takes great pride in providing a pleasant, pain free experience for our patients. One improvement in dentistry over the past few years is the use of new technology. We now can take intra-oral pictures of the teeth and our patients can see, with great detail, what we see. Also, very important is explaining procedures and educating our patients on ways to have a healthy mouth for a lifetime. 

Denise moved to Oconee County two years ago from Illinois with her husband Stuart, daughter Taylor, and son Colin. When she is not working she can be found watching her kids play soccer and spending time with friends, and exploring Georgia with her family.

Kyna Harper (Dental Assistant) If you have any Dental phobia, Kyna is excellent at putting you at even before Dr. Mathew steps in the office. She will hold your hand, talk to you, laugh with you all the while not missing a beat assisting Dr. Mathew. 

She attended the Dental Assisting school at Athens Technical College and has been in the Dental field for over 10 years. She is originally from Elbertson GA, but has been living in Winder for the past 10 years. She is happily married for 17 years and has two teenage daughters Jamaya and Jordyn.

"I have always been very nervous about dental appointments, but Dr. Mathew and her team were so gentle and caring, that by the end of my appointment I was laughing and having fun. I told my friends, I never had so much fun at a Dental appointment before and they wanted to see who this Dentist is. So I brought my friend with me on my next visit and he got to see how Dr. Mathew and her team go the extra mile to make it a caring and fun filled atmosphere. "
