Office Manager

Hello! My name is Jenell, and I was born and raised in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and yes, I am a true blue Tar Heel fan! I graduated from DeVry University with a degree in business management. I was introduced to the world of dentistry over eight years ago and am blessed to say I have enjoyed every minute since that time. I joined the Providence Smiles team in March of 2020. I’m an avid crafter and music listener. When I’m not at work, you’ll find me spending time with my family at the beach or the mountains, cooking, crafting, listening to tunes, volunteering, and binge-watching some of my favorite tv shows. I look forward to meeting you!


Insurance Coordinator

Hi there! My name is Dawn, and I was born and raised in Fort Meade, Florida. I have three children, a husband of 24 years, a sweet puppy named Lemon, and two cats. I’ve worked in the dental field for over five years, and I love getting to know the patients at Providence Smiles. On my days off, I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, and traveling back to Florida to see family, friends and, of course, the beach. I love being part of the Providence Smiles team and look forward to working with you soon!


Patient Care Coordinator

Hola mis Amigos! My name is Maria, and I was born and raised in Orange County, California. I have three daughters and a lovely Beagle, and I have been married to my husband for 10 years. We moved to North Carolina seven years ago. I was introduced to the world of dentistry 14 years ago. I have loved getting to know the patients and seeing all the beautiful dental transformations! In my time off, I enjoy taking my daughters to their sports games, dance and church. I joined Providence Smiles in October of 2021, and it has been such a blessing. We welcome you and strive to give you the best experience possible.



Hello there! My name is Emory, and I am pleased to say I call Chapel Hill, North Carolina, home. I have been a Tar Heel since I could walk, so I’m proudly a tried and true Tar Heel since graduating with my Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene in May 2021. I have wanted to be a dental hygienist since I was 10 years old! I love this field and am passionate about using my skills to serve others. I joined the team at Providence Smiles in June 2021 and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I knew after one visit to the office that I wanted this to be my dental home, which speaks volumes about Dr. Gyampo and the culture that is fostered here. When not knee-deep in teeth, I run a small craft business, go hiking, and spend time with the people I love. I love making those around me feel welcome and comfortable. I look forward to taking care of you!


Dental Assistant

Hey! My name is Jamya. I was born and raised in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I’ve been interested in dental since I was in high school. I am currently in school to become a dental hygienist. When I joined Providence Smiles, I was more excited than ever! For now, you will see me floating around the office, working at the front desk or in the back assisting, or taking pictures and videos to post on our social media pages! When I have free time, I like to travel with my family and catch up on my sleep!

Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, playing with my pups and watching my favorite tv shows.
