Meet Our Team
I am a Georgia Tech graduate who studied public policy, and minored in pre-law and public health. I have always been interested in healthcare management, and have fallen in love with the dental industry. I promise to do my best to make your experience with us pleasant and painless. I feel incredibly fortunate to be working for the best dentist in the industry who has such a big and nurturing heart. I truly feel at home in Dr. Davis’ office, and with this wonderful team, I know you will as well. In my time here, I have found that we have the most amazing, friendly, and welcoming patients. Outside of the office I love working out, crafting, volunteering (especially for animal rescue organizations), and spending time with my husband, Trevor, and two mutt pups, Peanut and Cashew.
Merina Hudgins– Patient Coordinator
I am originally from the beautiful mountains of East Tennessee. I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in 2009 from East Tennessee State University where I majored in Criminal Justice and Criminology. In 2010, I joined the healthcare field working for Johnson City Pediatrics for a number of years. That is where I discovered my true passion for the healthcare industry. I was an Assistant Manager for a dental practice in 2013 before moving here to Georgia with my husband, Aaron. I am so thankful to be a part of Dr.Davis’s team. He has a genuine heart for dentistry and helping others- while taking every opportunity to spread knowledge to his staff and patients. Outside the office, I enjoy spending my time outdoors, cooking, loving on my lazy cat Tewsdi, and going back to visit family and friends in Tennessee.
Mariann Mote – Dental Hygienist
I have been a dental hygienist for over 30 years and still love what I do. I feel blessed to work for Dr. Davis, the best clinician and educator in Atlanta. My knowledge of dentistry began at the University of Pittsburgh where I graduated from the Dental Hygiene program. I obtained my Master’s Degree in Education and taught dental hygiene at Pitt for almost 10 years. Throughout the years, I have worked in several specialty dental offices. My final home is here with Dr. Davis and his exceptional team. Dr. Davis gives me the opportunity to regularly attend courses so I may continue to learn the newest philosophies and techniques in dentistry. I enjoy sharing this knowledge with our patients. In my spare time, I enjoy playing tennis, taking tap lessons, camping, and spending quality time with my adult children.
Dixie Musser – Hygienist/Dental Assistant
I have been a dental hygienist for 8 years and in the dental field for a total of 15 years. As a hygienist and dental assistant, I feel blessed to be a member of Dr. Davis’ exceptional team. Dr. Davis is committed to continuing education and passes it on to us, as well as our patients. He is an extremely skilled and passionate dentist. I am happy to be a part of this great practice. During my free time I enjoy riding my Harley Davidson motorcycle. I am also a member of a women’s motorcycle club who involve themselves in many charities throughout the year.
Vanessa Hodge – Dental Assistant
I was born in Puerto Rico and raised here in Georgia. I graduated from Fortis College in Smyrna, GA and joined the exciting field of dentistry in 2010. I feel very blessed to have found an outstanding teacher in Dr. Davis and grateful to work with an amazing dental family. When not at the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 15 years, our two handsome boys, and our lovable pup, Sasha.
