Also an amazing clincian, dee is a lot of fun. When you are scheduled with dee, you are never nervous!! She has the whole office laughing by 8:00 am daily.
Though Dee never had children of her own, she is an international host mother through Davis and Elkins College and a mother to many "4 legged fur babies."
You will see her often in public with her family and friends shopping, eating and at all sporting events. Dee has no plans on retiring.

Where would we be without Faye? She has been with the office since 1980. She runs the office on Fridays, closing the week out and preparing us for the following week. You will always find a smile and a kind word from her.
Monica Crossland, Dental Assistant
Monica is Dr. Chris' primary assistant. She started the day he did in 1991. A beautiful soul, she and the doc have such a great ease with one another, often they can complete procedures without much discussion. Monica is incredibly kind and patient. Both she and Dr. Chris exude a sense on calm that patients find relaxing and refreshing.
When she is not working you will find her traveling with her family, scuba diving and exploring new parts of the Caribbean. She enjoys spending as much time as possible outside. When weather does not permit her outside activities you will find her and her husband competing to see who is the better chef. Monica hopes one day to retire in Belize.
