Office Manager

Hey there! I’m Jenell, and I’m proud to call Chapel Hill my hometown. As a true blue Tar Heel fan, I bleed Carolina blue! After earning my degree in business management from DeVry University, I found my passion in the world of dentistry over eight years ago, and I’ve cherished every moment since.

Joining the Providence Smiles team in March of 2020 was a true blessing. Outside of work, I’m an avid crafter and music enthusiast. Whether it’s spending quality time with my family at the beach or mountains, whipping up delicious meals in the kitchen or immersing myself in my favorite TV shows, I’m always up for a good time.

Volunteering is close to my heart, and I find immense joy in giving back to the community. I can’t wait to meet you and help make your dental experience as enjoyable and comfortable as possible!


Patient Experience Coordinator

Hey there, I’m Daniel Lesane, and I’m thrilled to be the friendly face you’ll meet when you step into our office. As the Patient Experience Coordinator, I’m here to ensure that your visit with us is not just good, but great.

With a background in the tech world, I’ve found a new passion in the dental field, where I get to make a real difference in people’s lives. Whether it’s answering your phone calls or helping you schedule your next appointment, my goal is to make your experience with us as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

When I’m not at the office, you’ll often find me spending quality time with my son or casting a line out on the water. I’m a big fan of fishing — it’s my way of relaxing and connecting with nature.

I genuinely love what I do, and I can’t wait to welcome you into our dental family. So, if you ever need anything or just want to chat about your latest fishing adventure, don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m here for you!


Dental Hygienist

Hey there! I’m Emory, and I’m thrilled to call Chapel Hill my home. Being a Tar Heel has been a part of me since I took my first steps, and I proudly embraced that identity even more after graduating with my Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene in May 2021. Believe it or not, I’ve wanted to be a dental hygienist since I was just 10 years old! The passion I have for this field is truly ingrained in me.

Joining the incredible team at Providence Smiles in June 2021 was like finding my dental home. Dr. Gyampo and the culture here captured my heart from the very beginning. Outside of ensuring healthy smiles, I’m busy running a small craft business, exploring hiking trails, and cherishing moments with my loved ones.

I thrive on making those around me feel welcome and comfortable, so you can trust that your dental experience with me will be nothing short of exceptional. I can’t wait to meet you and take care of your dental needs with compassion and expertise!


Dental Assistant II

Hi there! I’m Chelsea Carden, and I’m thrilled to be serving as a Dental Assistant II here at Providence Smiles-Hillsborough. As a native of this town, I have the pleasure of knowing many families who come through our doors, which adds a special touch to our patient interactions.

Beyond my role in the office, my greatest joy comes from being a mom to my wonderful daughter, who truly lights up my world. As a mother, I understand the importance of family and strive to extend that sense of warmth and care to our patients, making them feel like a part of our dental family.

With my years of experience, I’m well-versed in dental procedures and post-procedure care, ensuring that each patient receives the highest quality of treatment and support. I take pride in being a welcoming face chairside, providing comfort and reassurance throughout every visit.

It’s a privilege to work alongside such a dedicated team, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the health and well-being of our community. I look forward to welcoming you to our office and providing you with exceptional care!

Hola! I’m Kiara Cruz, and I’m proud to bring my Puerto Rican roots and vibrant personality to my role as a Dental Assistant here at Providence Smiles. With seven years of experience in the field, I’ve honed my skills and developed a deep passion for providing top-notch patient care.

I believe in bringing joy and laughter into the office, and my colleagues often describe me as funny and hardworking. I’m dedicated to using the latest technology in our office to enhance patient care and ensure a comfortable experience for everyone who walks through our doors.

Outside of work, you’ll often find me indulging my love for travel, exploring new destinations and immersing myself in different cultures. I’m also a huge fan of concerts and enjoy discovering new music. And of course, I have a passion for food – whether it’s trying out new restaurants or experimenting with recipes at home, I’m always up for a culinary adventure!
