All the members of our professional staff at the office of Dr. Mark Freeman & Associates maintain the highest levels of accreditation and pursue continuing education to stay abreast of the latest trends in dentistry.  Whether it be chairside dental techniques or coding insurance to get the most for your money, the staff attend the classes which interest them --- with or without the Doctors in tow.  The following pictures and biographies will help you learn more about the people our office is so dependent on.

Dental Assistants

Tori Dickerson

Tori is a Virginia native, born and raised in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.   Having lived in the Richmond area for the last 20 years, she attended the Dental Assisting program at J. Sargent Reynolds’s Community College, and began assisting at our office in January of 2002.  “I enjoy our office because we provide high quality dentistry in an atmosphere which is relaxed and caring for both the patient and the employees.” Tori and her husband live South of the James with their dog Skippy.  Their daughter is currently enrolled at Radford University.

 

Christie Freeman

Christie was born at MCV hospital and was brought up in the City of Richmond, South of the James.  After graduating from Trinity Episcopal, she attended Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia.   It was here, in the pursuit of her Biology Degree, that she first met her future husband, Dr. Mark Freeman.   After receiving her Bachelor of Science in 1987, she began teaching High School Biology and Earth Science, and married her sweetheart in 1989.  After the birth of their second child, Christie left her teaching career to help at the practice whenever she is needed.  “Our office is like family to us, and we are always there for each other.”  For nearly 20 years now, she has been “on call” to help our office by filling in when other employees are unable to be at work. 

Business Office

Jaimie Snead, Office Manager

Jaimie has lived most of her life in Louisa County.  She has been working in the dental field for over 15 years, and began at our office in January of 2001.  As our office manager, she helps to keep things running smooth and efficient.  Jaimie aids our patients in understanding their treatment procedures and scheduling their appointments.  She is also one of the key people when it comes to understanding insurance benefits and billing issues, but her favorite part of dentistry is seeing the final results.  “When a patient finishes a big case and comes up to the front desk and shows us their smile, it makes me feel good to know that we helped them.”    Her life outside of our office is busy with her husband and two children.   Everyone is heavily involved in sports and charitable organizations. 

Taylor Harris, Front Desk

Taylor is currently a student at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College studying Business Administration. What a wonderful real-life experience she is getting working behind the desk at our office. She plans on transferring to VCU or Strayer University to complete her studies. Her hobbies are reading and working out at the gym. Taylor is a family oriented person spending her spare time with her family and friends. She enjoys going to the beach and visiting many State Parks in Virginia. Her dream is to one day visit all 50 states and to travel to Italy to see all the historical landmarks she has read about.
