Maria, Registered Dental Assistant
I have been in the dental field since 1996. I have also been a certified Oral and Maxillofacial surgery assistant since 2014. Joining the dental field has been one of the best decisions I have made, helping patients obtain a healthy and beautiful smile is my number one goal. I came on board with Dr. McCullough in May 2015. I enjoy working for Dr. McCullough who pursues excellence and cares about his patients. I strive to do my best to help others be as comfortable as possible here in our office. During my time off I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, and shopping.

Janie, Operations Manager
As a university student earning her Bachelor of Science degree in 2002, Janie began working in dentistry in 2000 sterilizing dental instruments. She later worked in dental assisting, collections, billing, and as a receptionist. Shortly after earning her bachelor’s degree, Janie became a business manager. As a child, Janie was afraid of her dentist but, while working in dentistry, she decided to remain in dentistry to make an impact and help patients feel comfortable – not fearful – at the dentist and maintain good oral health. It is satisfying for her to see patients who formerly smiled without showing their teeth become confident about smiling after Dr. McCullough does their dental treatment; he transforms smiles like no other dentist she has ever worked for. During leisure time, Janie enjoys going to concerts, football games and baseball games with her husband and daughter.
