Patient Care Specialist
Hi, my name is Stacy. I always knew I wanted to be in dentistry and have been in the field for over 16 youthful years. I received my education from the Community College Tech in Minnesota and the University of Florida College of Dentistry in Gainesville and continue to pursue knowledge through advanced courses, such as those at Las Vegas Institute.
As one of Dr. Sutton's Patient Care Specialists, it is my job to ensure that your visits with us are comfortable and that all your needs are met. What inspires me is the ability to calm the fears of nervous patients and helping them to pursue dental health and then seeing their happiness with their new, healthy smile. Our team is so friendly and experienced that patients who initially come to us with apprehension are soon very comfortable and actually enjoy their visits with us.
Outside of the office, I love spending time with family, friends and my two fur babies. And beach get-a-ways.
Hi, my name is Jovita. I have been assisting Dr. Sutton since 2008. I am a graduate of the College of Central Florida Dental Assisting Program in Ocala, Florida and have passed the Dental Assisting National Board Examination. The dental field is ever changing and I am always eager to expand my knowledge through continuing education classes.
I love working with Dr. Sutton because he is very thorough and cares for each of our patients. It is the most rewarding feeling to be able to give a person back their smile. Having access to all of the updated equipment helps us provide easy and accurate treatment for our patients.
In my free time I love to spend every minute with my husband and our two boys.
Hi, my name is Rabecca. I'm a graduate of the College of Central Florida Dental Assisting program. Since then, I have been working for Dr. Sutton and expanding my knowledge of dentistry.
Working for Dr. Sutton has given me the opportunity to learn many new things. I am so fortunate to work at an office that truly cares for each and every one of our patients and strives to give them the best dental care possible.
When I'm not in the office, I enjoy spending time at the beach with family and friends, watching movies, shopping or being out on the water.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Hi, I'm Abby and I'm one of the Registered Dental Hygienists in our office. I started with Dr. Sutton in 2014 and have over 14 years of dental experience. I got my start in the dental field as a Certified Dental Assistant, after graduating from CFCC's dental assisting program. I always knew that dental hygiene would be my passion though. I went back to school an earned my Associate of Science degree in Dental Hygiene at Santa Fe College in 2009.
I believe that a healthy smile can earn you many things in life and I'm happy to help patients achieve or maintain that. I strive on being thorough with my patients oral health care as well as providing comfort to the anxious patient.
I was born and raised right here in Ocala. With my husband, 2 sons and daughter, I enjoy traveling, cruising and frequent trips to Disney World!
Registred Dental Hygienist
Hi, my name is Carin, RDH, and I'm one of Dr. Sutton's experienced and caring dental hygienists. I received my AS in Dental Hygiene from Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida over a decade ago and continue to take courses every year in order to stay abreast of the current advances in dentistry.
I really enjoy the warm, friendly atmosphere in our office and sharing that atmosphere with our patients. Dr. Sutton is a true professional and provides exceptional dentistry, so I feel confident when discussing treatment options with our patients. Most rewarding is the quality time I can devote to getting to know our patients, informing them about the health of their teeth and gums, and helping them achieve optimum health.
My husband, son, daughter and two cats make my family complete.
Ardean brings a lot of enthusiasm to the dental team. One of her strengths is caring for others and it shows. She wants her patient to have the best experience ever. A rumor is she has been working in dentistry as long as Dr Sutton. Her wealth of knowledge will help our patients feel comfortable and in good hands.
Ardean has a large family so when they get together it is a joyful event. She enjoys being outdoors, especially when going to the beach or camping. When she is indoors she loves to make arts and crafts.
Ardean and her husband Shane are big Alabama fans. We know she will be watching a tide game on a fall Saturday! She has two beautiful pampered dogs, Teddy and Rusty. Ask to see their picture!
Registered Dental Hygienist
Denise brings happiness and enthusiasm to the practice. If you hear laughter it could be any of us but there is a good chance it is Denise. Denise works hard to make sure your visit will be enjoyable.
Denise has a wide array of experience in dentistry. She was an educator in Jacksonville and had many years of working in pediatrics. Part of her time was focused on special needs children and Adults. A big reason Denise has chosen to work in our office is because, "Everyone is helpful and approachable!"
She has 3 children that go to school here in Ocala. She is from a large family in Ft Walton Beach but fortunately her husband is from Ocala and ended up back here. Her wish list hobby is more boating!
Hi, my name is Valerie and I am the Business Administrator for the practice.
I enjoy all the changes and new advancements that dentistry has to offer and I love that Dr. Sutton continually attends courses so our patients can benefit from these advancements.
I feel confident talking to patients about their care because I know that Dr. Sutton recommends treatment to his patients as he would his own family. I also enjoy my job because I get to share my time at work with such a talented team of professionals who are all committed to the same goal of ensuring that our patients have the best possible experience while receiving the best possible care.
When not at work, I love spending time with my husband and our three daughters.
