Meet the Team

We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Dental Assistant

Shoronda has worked with Dr. Cathey since 1997 as a chairside assistant. While her main duties consist of helping during procedures, taking radiographs, and charting, her most important task is making sure our patients are comfortable during their visit. Shoronda enjoys getting to know each patient on a personal level. She’s worked here for so long that we’ve all become part of her second family. When she’s not in the office, Shoronda enjoys spending time with her son and watching basketball.




Dental Assistant

Tommi joined our team in 1994. She can be found assisting Dr. Cathey at chairside, taking radiographs and impressions, ordering supplies, and monitoring sterilization, in addition to creating a pleasant atmosphere for our patients to enjoy. Tommi works hard to make sure our patients are pleased and that our team works together to get the job done in a timely manner. Tommi is a single mother with one daughter. She is a member of New Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church and loves reading, traveling, and going out with friends.





Erika can be found at our front desk where, in addition to greeting each patient with a smile, she answers the phone, makes and confirms appointments, and verifies insurance. She’s been a great member of the team since 2000. Her favorite aspect of her job is the happy, friendly atmosphere that everyone on our team creates. Erika’s time outside the office is spent watching basketball and football, shopping, and going out to eat.




Shirley manages all our front office day-to-day activities, schedules appointments, verifies insurance coverage, coordinates patient treatment plans, manages patient and practice records, and puts together patient statements. Here since 1994, Shirley is a wonderful team member who encourages patients to do whatever it takes to improve their oral health. She treats everyone she meets with compassion and respect. Shirley has been married for 28 years and has two adult children — a daughter and a son. She enjoys reading, shopping, and spending time with family and friends.



Dental Hygienist

Our patients’ oral health is always at the forefront of Cyprienne’s mind. As our dental hygienist, she is responsible for providing preventive and maintenance care to ensure our patients’ teeth stay healthy and beautiful. With us since 1996, Cyprienne enjoys being able to share the many ways to maintain good oral health and the benefits of daily care with children, their parents, and even their grandparents. Cyprienne is the mother of three: two girls and one boy. Outside of work, she is involved in all three children’s activities, from Little League to PTO. She is involved in her church and community activities as well.
