    Certified Dental Assistant

When Angie has time away from the office, she enjoys making crafts, loving on her pugs, Angel and Diesel and traveling to watch her boys compete in clay shooting competitions.  Angie can only hitch hike with one hand, as she has one thumb that is smaller than the other. *We think this makes her a better assistant 😉

  • Brooke Boger

Brooke also holds a TikTok degree and will continue to work to sharpen her skills moving forward. 😉 Brooke is married to Brandon and they have two sons, Owen and Ethan.  Although Brooke works daily as an assistant, she is also a huge asset to every aspect of the office.  Her free time is spent with her kids and their sporting activities.  She loves to take road trips, reading, and being involved with her church family and community.

  • Kassidy White
    Registered Dental Hygienist

    Kassidy has been with Clemmons Family Dental since 2023. Kassidy had many major milestones occur for her in the last couple of years.  Kassidy studied hygiene at Guilford Technical Community College.  Kassidy graduated on a Thursday from hygiene school and the very next day she married her sweetheart, Logan.  They waited to celebrate with a honeymoon until after she took her board certification test.  They also have a Shihtzu named Rambo who doesn’t know he is a dog or only 10 pounds.  Kassidy adds just the right things to balance us out here at the office.  She has a great sense of humor, she can multitask, and she is also tall (which makes 3 out of 17 of us. 😉) Kassidy also has a crazy sense of adventure—she has been skydiving twice and would go again and again and again.
