Renee became “one of ours” on the first day that Dr. Chris stepped in his new office in 1997. Several years before that, after graduating from high school, Renee started her career as a Dental Assistant under the guidance and direction of Drs. Glen and Imogene Waddle. All our patients know and appreciate her. She is experienced, effective, professional, thorough, unswerving. And so often, Renee always knows just how to blend all these qualities with a great sense of humor!

Renee also completed courses in professional accomplishments:

  • Assisting in Dental Implant procedures – Midwest Implant Institute
  • E4D technology (same day crown procedures)


Rose received her certified dental assistant degree in 2007.

She loves being a part of a team that focuses on treating every patient as if they were family.

In her free time she enjoys spending time with her husband and four children.


Ashley graduated from Stark State College with high distinction honors, receiving an Associate’s degree in Applied Science.

Her primary focus is delivering gentle dental care with an emphasis on patient education.

Ashley’s calm chair side manner and kind demeanor puts nervous patients at ease and helps her cater to those who may feel intimidated in a dental setting.

Her favorite thing about being a hygienist is getting to know each patient’s specific needs and helping them meet those individually.

In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, tent camping, watching the Cleveland Indians, and spending time with her dog, Reenie.
