Julia Ming, RDH

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love to see patients understand the connection between a healthy mouth and a healthy body. Working with each patient to achieve the common goal of great oral health is rewarding. I strive to build strong, trusting relationships with each person. By learning who they are, and about their life, I can identify areas where they can improve their home dental hygiene. During visits, I clean teeth, offer therapeutic procedures, and educate my patients about their dental health.

I’m happily married, with a daughter and a son. My husband Jeff farms, so we live in the country with lots of animals. I enjoy painting, sewing, reading, and traveling.

 

Allyson Burgess, RDH

Registered Dental Hygienist and Dental Assistant

One of my favorite things about being a dental hygientist and assistant is that I love building a bond between me and the patient. One of the strongest motivations for being a dental hygientist is that everyday I know I am making a positive impact in someone's life. Educating a patient about their oral hygiene and making them feel confident in their own smile is something I can go home and be proud of. Being a hygientist is an essential part of who I am as a person and I would not have it any other way.

Outside of work I love spending time with family and friends, playing with my three dogs, fishing, and anything outdoors. I am also a proud supporter of the Mississippi State Bulldogs!

 

Lauren Jones, RDH

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love developing relationships with our patients, and getting to know them and their families. During their visits, we’re always talking and laughing, and forming wonderful friendships that extend beyond provider and patient. I clean patients’ teeth, teach dental hygiene, am a Zoom® teeth-whitening specialist, and help educate patients on how to keep their smile healthy. In addition, I answer the phones and set appointments.

I’m happily married to my husband Matthew and we have two children, Camille and Levi. We also have one dog and a cat. We love being outdoors, traveling and watching sports. We are proud supporters of Delta State and Ole Miss!

 

Vickie Smith

Office Manager

I enjoy getting to know our patients on a personal level, talking about their lives and their families, and building relationships with each. It’s truly a great feeling when we finish a procedure and the person is thrilled with his or her healthy, beautiful smile. In addition to welcoming patients when they arrive, I answer our phones and schedule visits. I also work with patients to make sure they get the most from their dental insurance and make financial arrangements too.

My husband Charles and I enjoy spending time and traveling with our daughter, son-in-law and little grandsons, Jennings and Charlie. We love our animals and have four dogs. I also serve as the worship leader at my church.

 

Kristi Rohr

Dental Assistant

As a dental assistant for Dr. Tindle, it is my pleasure to work with so many different people on a day-to-day basis. Helping each patient have a comfortable dental experience is my number-one goal. It is very rewarding to see a happy smile after a procedure.

I live in Cleveland with my son, Nate. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending my time with friends, family, and anything outdoors!

 

Melanie Gray, RDA

Registered Dental Assistant 

I enjoy being Dr. Tindle's assistant. It's such a blessing meeting new people and developing a relationship with our patients. My goal is to ensure our patients are well cared for, happy, and satisfied. I enjoy educating patients about their oral health and helping them feel confident about their smile.

I am from Clarksdale. I have a daughter named Makenzie. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, shopping, and going out to eat. I'm also a huge fan of the Dallas Cowboys!
