Meet The Clyde Dental Team

John Highsmith, DDS in Clyde, NC

Tara – Dental Assistant

I’ve worked in dentistry since 1994. Dr. Highsmith and I work hand in glove – I’m almost as good as the dentist! I love to travel, and I am always ready to go as often as opportunity arises – it’s rewarding and educational. I’m eager to learn anything new, in dentistry or other fields. Ask me where I’ve been recently!

Laura – Dental Hygienist

Hi! I’m Laura and I’ve been with Dr. Highsmith since 1993. A Tennessee native, I began my career there in 1986. I enjoy the close-knit atmosphere of our dental team, who all strive for a common goal: To always provide our patients with optimal dental health. I’ve been married to Robbie since 1997, and we have a beautiful daughter, Emily.

Ateia – Dental Assistant

I have been in dentistry since 2003. One of the things I enjoy most about Dr. Highsmith’s practice is seeing how changing a smile can transform someone’s life. With our continuous education and training, and Dr. Highsmith’s desire for us to succeed in our goals, being a part of this team is very gratifying to me.

I have a husband and two daughters who keep me on my toes and enrich my life every day.

Sonya – New Patient Advocate

I’m Sonya, Dr. Highsmith’s new patient advocate. I enjoy meeting the new patients. I love building new relationships, working through treatment concerns, and helping create workable financial options for you. I’m here to help you get what you want! I am a Tennessee native and have been in dentistry since 2000. In my free time I enjoy my family, camping, reading, and crafting.

Pam – Dental Hygienist

Although I’m new to the practice I’m not new to dental hygiene, I’ve been a dental hygienist since 1998. Love being part of Dr. Highsmith’s team which is pushing me to be the best I can be in all aspects of life, whether it’s in the office or outside the office. I’ve been married to my wonderful husband of 26 years, and we have three great boys.
