Tisha | Dental Hygienist Tisha | Dental Hygienist
Tisha graduated from York Technical College in 2007 and is licensed in both North and South Carolina. Her desire is to be gentle and caring, hoping to eliminate some of the fears the patients might have. She loves working with children. By creating a fun and safe dental environment for them she hopes that their experiences early in life will prevent them from growing up to be anxious dental patients. She also enjoys working with the doctors and staff at Park Cedar Dentistry because “it’s one big family of people who really care for each other and their patients”.

A true “southern girl” Tisha resides in Heath Springs, S.C. along with her dogs and wonderful husband. Although she does not have children of her own, she manages to fill her time with many yard projects as well as crafts. She is an amateur seamstress in her off time and an active member in her community.

Beth | Certified Dental Assistant Beth | Certified Dental Assistant
Beth came to our practice in 2002 as a student intern. Her talent, competence and compassion for patients was immediately obvious prompting us to extend an invitation to her to join our office immediately following graduation. She welcomes challenges and the variety that being a dental assistant provides.

Beth assists with all procedures, but she particularly likes surgical and implant cases. She is a member of the Association of Dental Implant Auxiliaries and is certified by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. These organizations require additional continuing education hours and ensure she stays current on the latest implant and surgical techniques. Her favorite thing about working in this office is getting to know all of the patients and developing personal relationships with them.

A wife and mother of two young children, Beth enjoys spending time with her family, helping out with her kids various scouting and sports activities, and working on her many crafting projects.
