Meet the Team

We recognize that all of 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/Front Desk

I assist Dr. Rung with our patients’ care in the clinic, and assist patients from the front desk by scheduling appointments and updating insurance. I started in the dental field many years ago, and joined this wonderful office in 2008. Everyone here is a team player; we help and support each other, and most of all, have fun!

I’m married and a grandmother to two girls. I have a second home on the OBX of North Carolina that I am fortunate to be able to visit often.


Office Manager

I have worked with Dr. Rung since 1996. As our office manager, I enjoy meeting new people and developing personal relationships with them. Over the years, many of our patients have become my good friends! Each person on our team feels like an extended member of my family. We work well together and enjoy each other’s company.

I’m married with two children and four grandchildren. I love playing golf and anything to do with the outdoors.


Certified Dental Assistant

I work as a dental assistant and clinical manager, and have been with Dr. Rung since 1996. It is my goal to help our patients feel comfortable in our office, whether they are having a procedure done or are just here for a checkup. At our office, we provide quality dental care in a relaxed and personalized environment, and I look forward to being a part of that each day.

I am married with two children. I enjoy reading, watching sports, and spending time with my family when I’m not in the office.


Registered Dental Hygienist

I have worked in dentistry for 25 years, though it hardly feels like that long! As a dental hygienist at Dr. Rung’s office, I assess patients’ medical and dental health and perform preventive services, in addition to educating patients on good home hygiene. It is rewarding to work in a field where I can make a positive difference in the lives of so many people in my community. We’re all really like a family here!

I love spending time with my husband, Chris, and our children, Sam and Dean. I enjoy cooking, reading, hiking, biking, going to the beach, and traveling. I am also a yoga instructor!


Registered Dental Hygienist

Over the past four years I’ve worked with Dr. Rung, I’ve really felt like a part of a practice family. Ours is a small office, and my coworkers are very supportive and encouraging. It is a pleasure to be a part of this team. When working with patients, I make sure to personalize each cleaning, taking into account their personal goals and preferences. I love getting to know my patients and helping them achieve and maintain their oral health.

I am happily married to Brian, and am a mother to Hannah and Noah. We also have a dog named Browny. I love to cook and go out to eat; I’m definitely a “foodie”!
