Meet our Staff

​Hello, I am Karen. I am one of Dr. Moore's dental assistants. We have worked together for the past 19 years. I absolutely love my patients and our team. I enjoy developing friendships as well as the professional relationships that I share with them. After work, I love spending time with my husband of 23 years, Mike, and our sweet son Jonathan, who recently became a teenager. My life is truly blessed!
Hello, my name is Trish. I worked for Dr. Moore from 1990 to 1992 where I gained valuable knowledge. I then obtained my dental hygiene license and went to work at another dental office. I recently came back to work for Dr. Moore where I am fortunate to be working for a great dentist and office team. After work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two wonderful sons. I am so blessed.

Anna Burrill
​Hi! I’m Anna Burrill. It’s been such a privilege to work for my dad and with his staff. I’m a musician and piano teacher by training, but I have enjoyed getting to know patients and helping in various roles here at the office. Perhaps I am a bit biased, but Dr. Moore is the best dentist in world! When I'm not working, I love being at the CrossFit gym, and spending time with my sweet family
Hello, I'm Randi. A few years ago I was a hopeful student at this practice completing my shadowing hours for hygiene school; now I am ecstatic to be a dental hygienist here! I feel extremely blessed to have been given the opportunity to be a part of such a compassionate, professional, and knowledgable team. When I am not at work I enjoy barrel racing, hunting, and spending time with my family.
