We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.

Emily Melton, RDH

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love meeting and building relationships with our patients. Each person has stories to share and we often laugh together. While I clean their teeth, perform periodontal maintenance, or whiten their teeth, I ask about their life and hobbies. This gives me insight into how I can help the patient improve their oral health. By changing home hygiene routine or products, eating better, and making healthy choices, patients can develop and maintain a bright and wonderful smile.

When I’m not caring for patients, I enjoy reading, watching sports, and being outside. I especially enjoy spending time with family, friends, and my puppy.

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.

Lauren Jones, RDH

Registered Dental Hygienist and Dental Assistant

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 assist Dr. Tindle during patient visits. I also clean patients’ teeth, teach dental hygiene, am a Zoom® teeth-whitening specialist, and help patients learn how to keep their smile healthy. In addition, I answer the phones and set appointments.

I’m happily married, with a daughter and a son. We also have one dog. 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 and a cat. 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!
