Meet the Staff

The team at Paxton Family Dental is friendly and concerned about their patient's needs. This team has work together for many years providing their patients with quality care and service. When you call or arrive at our office you will be greeted by Jerilyn. She will handle all your new patient paperwork, and insurance needs. In the back you will be greeted by our licensed dental Hygienists Whitney and Michelle. One of these ladies will take your x-rays, clean your teeth and discuss your treatment needs after Dr. Faught completes his exam. If you need any restorative treatment, you will work together with Jerilyn to provide you with a treatment plan for your services. When you arrive for your treatment with Doctor Faught, you will be greeted by the dental assistant Hana, who works chair-side with doctor. The dental assistant will discuss your treatment, provide post op instructions, and address any further questions you may have. The following is a little about each of our members. They are excited to meet you and learn about you and your family. So give Jerilyn a call to schedule your appointment today!
