Meet Our Team


Registered Dental Hygienist

I love helping patients maintain their oral health and hygiene through treatment, prevention and education. I enjoy discussing dentistry as a part of total health, nutrition and healthy lifestyle; it really helps our patients "connect the dots" when it comes to staying healthy.

I believe we have a very special practice; each team member is focused on providing optimum dentistry, and we value our relationships with our patients and their families. I look forward to seeing my patients at their recare visits and catching up on family stories and events.

We take extra time to review dental procedures and home care instructions; often we find that fear is in the "unknown", and that by thoroughly explaining the process, we can help alleviate our patients' concerns about dental treatment.

Vickie began her career as a Dental Hygienist in 1979. She joined our practice in 2005, and has become a tremendous resource for our patients and team through her ongoing enthusiasm for the study of dental health and patient education.

Patient Care coordinator

I recently began my dental career in Spring 2018. I have enjoyed every moment spent in the office. I love working with patients, helping them enjoy their time in our office! I want every single person that comes in our doors to feel that their needs are taken care of and then more. Seeing the smiling faces and hearing all about patients lives I moved to Atlanta in November 2017 from our families historic farm in Northern Virginia. I have an Organismal Biology Bachelors of Science, with a concentration in Marine Conservation Biology, from Christopher Newport University. I am currently set to start volunteering at the Georgia Aquarium, one of my favorite places. I love people almost as much as I love animals!


Certified Dental Assistant

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Plunkett since 1986. Previously I worked in the practice in the late 1980s. I returned in 2012 after taking several years off to raise a family. Procedures have changed slightly over the years; however, the commitment to provide the highest level of dentistry and care for our patients has remained consistent.

I look forward to seeing familiar faces as well as meeting new patients and answering any questions or concerns they may have. It is great to be back!"

We are so proud to have Betty in our practice again; our long term patients are enjoying catching up with her! Her pleasant, easygoing nature and wealth of compassion have always made her an asset to our team, twenty years ago and today!
