Meet the Team
Sarah - Dental Hygienist
Hi, my name is Sarah. I will be your Registered Dental Hygienist for your future appointments. Before we meet in person I wanted to share with you a little about myself.
I was born and in raised in the Miami Valley area, I grew up in Huber Heights and currently live in Tipp City. On the weekends and evenings, I enjoy spending time with family. My husband and I married in 2011. My passions are children and animals, especially dogs. We adopted our first dog Burpee in Spring of 2012 and Gizmo in Aug of 2015. On the weekends and summers, I enjoy spending time with my nieces and nephews, they are my greatest joy!
I attended Wayne High School and graduated in 2004. My college journey began at Sinclair where I chose Dental Hygiene as my career. I graduated from Sinclair in 2010 with my Associates degree in Applied Science and obtained a Communications Associates degree as well. After graduating, I completed both State and National boards to allow me to practice Dental Hygiene in the State of Ohio.
I have been a team member of Dr. Kori and Everhart Advanced Dentistry since December of 2010. As a dental hygienist I enjoy educating patients and informing them on how to improve their oral hygiene habits, and sharing with them the effects it has on their systemic health. As a RDH, I am responsible for maintaining and staying up to date with the latest changes in oral health. I also enjoy, and am required by the State of Ohio to complete 24 hours of continuing education every two years. This helps to ensure that you are getting the best care possible. I am licensed to perform local anesthesia, plus I am trained in Invisalign and Zoom Whitening. I look forward to meeting you and your family and providing you with great care!
Monica - Dental Hygienist
Hi, my name is Monica. I will be your Registered Dental Hygienist for your
scheduled appointment. Before we meet in person, I just wanted to give you a
little info or background on me.
I am 30 years old. I was born in Cincinnati and graduated high school from
Franklin in 2004. I enjoy harmony and being a reliable team member with you
for your oral health and overall well-being.
I have a five-year-old son. He is getting ready to start kindergarten this
year. He loves tee-ball, flag football, and wants to try out basketball this
winter. I coach his tee-ball team and love to help out with the football
team as well. Some things I enjoy doing are playing softball and volleyball
and have done so all of my life.
I love to watch football. During football season, you will hardly ever catch
me away from watching a game on the weekends. My favorites are OSU and the
Bengals. I adore coaching and teaching children fundamentals of sports and
making it fun to keep them smiling and entertained.
I love boating, fishing, & anything outside. My happiest is when vacationing
with my family.
I went to college at Eastern Kentucky University for the move away
experience. There I completed my general education for a health science
degree. After a year there I came home and attended Sinclair Community
College for the Dental Hygiene program. It was there that I obtained my
Associate degree in Applied Science and Dental Hygiene in 2013. With that I
took state boards to achieve a license to administer local anesthetic, a
certification to use nitrous oxide (laughing gas), a certification in oral
cancer detection, and an RDH license, which enables me to practice in Ohio.
I enjoy, and am required to take, 24 hours of continuing education
training every other year. This helps me to stay up on proper care for my
patients. I love to teach and help everyone understand their oral health and
how it helps their overall health as well.
I am also an advocate as well as a patient of Invisalign clear alignment
Treatment, and love how well it works to straighten teeth for a beautiful smile, but also how it helps with oral health. I look forward to meeting you and working together to achieve your dental goals.

I enjoy being outside and staying busy. My girlfriend and I are always out and about working on the yard, landscaping, or finding some project around the house to accomplish. We have two dogs, Lucy and Jaxx. They are the best dogs in the entire world (most of the time!) Lucy is a blue Weimaraner; she was born February 22, 2016. She is always ready to play, go for car rides, and chase the squirrels at the park. Jaxx is a bulldog mix; he was born June 23, 2016. We rescued him from his neglectful breeder in November of 2016, along with two of his brothers who found great forever homes. Jaxx is a little more on the lazy side, but he does love to go on walks and he gets so excited when it is time to eat.
As a Hygienist, I educate patients on ways to improve their oral health. It is important to me that patients understand how their oral health impacts their overall systemic health. I am responsible for staying up to date on the latest changes going on in the dental field so I can provide the best care possible to my patients. One of my main goals is to make patients feel comfortable and satisfied with the care they receive. I make every effort to achieve that for every single patient.
