Meet the Team

Haley

Insurance Coordinator

We serve a marvelous community. I love being part of a great dental office that keeps people smiling while improving their oral health! Our doctors and my teammates are smart, compassionate, and gentle. Each wants what’s best for our patients and works hard to make sure people feel welcome and at home during visits.

As the Kilman Dental Insurance Coordinator, I work with patients to ensure they get the most from their benefits. I handle filing, follow-up, troubleshooting, and accounts payable. Seeing the relief on someone’s face when I tell them their insurance covered their procedure makes me smile.

When not in the office, I love time with my family. I’m married and have two wonderful daughters. We own several acres and enjoy being around our dogs, horses, cats, and ducks.

Kathleen

Dental Assistant

Our patients are some of the best people in the world. It’s a pleasure to get to know each person and learn what’s important to them. I am especially passionate about helping people with dental anxiety: when someone realizes a visit here is painless and tells us they’re looking forward to coming back, I’m thrilled!

I work in the clinic, making sure patients are comfortable in the chair, preparing them to see the doctor, and explaining what we’ll be doing. I stay chairside, assisting the doctor with the procedure and at the end answer questions and offer homecare instructions.

I’ve lived in New Smyrna Beach since 1974. Outside of work, I enjoy being with my two American Fox Hounds and horseback riding. Each year I go to Alaska to visit family.

Patty

Dental Assistant

I love being part of a team that changes people’s lives. Whether we’re helping people smile confidently, relieving pain, or making it possible to comfortably chew, we’re improving the person’s quality of life. There’s nothing more rewarding than knowing you’ve touched someone’s life and made a difference.

I perform a variety of tasks in the clinic, always focused on patient comfort and making sure everything goes smoothly. In addition to assisting the doctors with fillings, crowns, and extractions, I take impressions and X-rays. I also offer patient education and encouragement.

I was born in Staten Island, NY. I’ve a son, Brad, and two cats, Shiloh and Libby. When not working, I love to cook and am a passionate traveler. I’ve been to 15 different countries, so far!

Christine

Dental Hygienist

I love helping each patient take control of their oral health. We have an amazing team at Kilman Dental: we’re committed to our patients’ wellbeing and their smiles, offering gentle care that’s tailored to each person. Seeing a healthy, clean smile at a recall visit absolutely makes my day!

I work one-to-one with patients, alongside the doctors, helping people improve their dental health. I specialize in the prevention and treatment of oral diseases, providing a range of preventive care. A lot of my time focuses on education: patients need to know why it’s important to care for their oral health and how to keep their mouth healthy and clean.

My wonderful husband Jason and I have five children: one son and four daughters. Outside of work, I enjoy watching my youngest daughter play soccer and going to the beach. I also like riding with Jason on his Harley and traveling around the country.

Sarah

Dental Hygienist

I’m a people-person and love getting to know each patient on a personal level. It’s a great feeling to help people I care about develop healthier smiles and feel better about their smile. I love working at Kilman Dental: it’s a friendly, caring, fun office, filled with laughter and smiles.

As a hygienist, I work closely with patients to help them take control of their oral health. While providing a thorough and gentle cleaning, examining the mouth for signs of oral disease, or offering preventive care, I’m always focused on my patient’s comfort. I teach patients about home dental hygiene and encourage them to practice good home care.

I was born and raised in Port Orange, FL, and am the mother of an absolutely incredible little boy, Troy! Time with him, family, and friends is a priority. I also love the beach and have a bit of a sense of adventure: I enjoy skydiving, whitewater rafting, and am dive certified.

Tara

Office Manager

Our patients are the best people! I am glad to work in a gentle dental office where our doctors and team help people achieve beautifully healthy and happy smiles. Everyone at Kilman Dental is here for our patients. We care about every aspect of each person’s life, not just their dental health, and enjoy building lasting relationships with them.

I oversee all aspects of our practice, ensuring we’re running smoothly so our patients have only positive experiences. I handle scheduling and accounts receivables. I also review treatment plans and walk patients through the doctor’s recommendations. As a certified dental assistant, I’m able to explain details and answer patient questions. It’s important people understand their care options so they make informed decisions.

My immediate family, including my son Austin, and I moved to Florida from Nebraska in 1998. My family and I treasure our time together, enjoying everything from baseball to paintball!

Lori

Dental Hygienist

My career began when I graduated from the dental assisting program in 1998. I worked as a dental assistant for a couple years, while taking prerequisite courses for the dental hygiene program. I graduated from the dental hygiene program in 2002 and been a dental hygienist since then! In the years since, I’ve gained experience in pediatrics, periodontics, and cosmetics, as well as general dentistry. It has also led me to be the president of the Valousia County Hygiene Association.

Since joining Dr. Kilman in 2015, I’ve really enjoyed helping our patients feel better because of the treatment we provide. My goal is to get to know all patients on an individual level, evaluate their dental health, and treat their wants and needs in a respectful manner.

My life pretty much revolves around my dog Cricket, who I truly love. I also like hanging out with my mom, exercising, and going to the beach.

Maria

Scheduling Coordinator

I joined the dental field in 1978, beginning as a dental assistant, completing my expanded duties certifications, and now transitioning to the front desk as a scheduling coordinator. I am here to assist patients with all their administrative needs, from appointment scheduling, collecting payments, answering phones, and reviewing treatment plans to greeting everyone who walks through our doors with a smile.

I have two daughters who live in Philadelphia, and I enjoy visiting them when I can. I moved from New Jersey to Florida about a year ago, mostly because of the outdoors and all the fishing opportunities!
