Darla Hodges

Front Desk Team Leader

"I was born in Surry County and graduated from North Surry High School. After working for eighteen years, I decided to go back to school and graduated with honors from Surry Community College in 2003.

I have worked at Dr. Gravitte's office since he opened in 2004, and each day I enjoy meeting new patients and making every patient feel comfortable and at ease. Working with Dr. Gravitte and his staff has been an exciting learning experience that I truly enjoy!"


Front Office Team Member

"I live in Cana, Virginia with my husband and fur baby Princess. After graduating from Carroll County High School, I worked at Pine State Knitwear for 23 years. I then earned a degree in Office Administration from Wytheville Community College, graduating with honors in 2005. After fifteen years in medical offices, I am blessed and excited to have been chosen to join the staff here at Dr. Gravitte and Associates. The teamwork and rapport that exists among the staff help me love my job, and I love the opportunity to help our patients in any positive way I can. I especially enjoy helping patients overcome anxiety and making them feel at ease when with our team. My hobbies are listening to music, reading (especially my bible), and bird watching with my husband."


Marketing Director

"I am a Mount Airy native and graduated from The College of Charleston with a BA in Corporate Communication. After living in Maui, Hawaii, for nearly 13 years, my husband and I were excited to move back to 'the mainland, and I am happy to once again call North Carolina home! My position with Dr. Gravitte and our team allows me to grow new partnerships in our great community and facilitate educational and outreach opportunities to help people of all ages understand the importance of oral health. We always emphasize that oral health=overall health,prevention, and education are vital to the health of our community! Not to mention, the future of dentistry and dental technology is a fascinating career for our local youth, too!"



"Native to Johnson City, Tennessee, my family and I have called Mount Airy home for over 20 years. A graduate of North Surry High School, I worked throughout my senior year as a caregiver to individuals with special needs and have enjoyed helping others ever since! Working with our patients at Dr. Gravitte's office makes every day enjoyable, and I really enjoy making patients smile! Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my pups Charlie & Hadlie, my kitty “O” and sweet Carson!"



"Whether over the phone or in person, I love to build relationships with our patients and help achieve their dental needs in any way possible! I have over six years of dental administrative experience and am grateful to have been given the opportunity to show both my strengths and willingness to learn every day! Outside of work, I am always with friends and family, and my high school sweetheart and I are the proud parents of two beautiful girls!"
