"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!"

"Following my first enlistment with the US Army, I graduated from Mercy College and am currently active in the Army Reserves Dental Command Area Support unit. In December 2018, I received my MHA (Master’s in Healthcare Administration) from Hofstra University and am happy to now call North Carolina home with my wife and family. When not working, I also enjoy coaching a youth travel lacrosse team, playing sports with my kids and cooking for my family!"

"I was born and raised in Surry County, NC. I graduated from SCC in 2018 as an Interpreter and Office Administrator. Every day is a journey, a different one and that’s what makes every day exciting! You never know what you will learn or who you will meet and that's why I really enjoy working at Dr. Gravitte's office! I enjoy learning all aspects of dentistry from clinical to administration. I love meeting new patients every day and helping them the best way I possibly can! It has truly been a wonderful experience having excellent co-workers who are not only caring but also excellent team players. Outside of work, my husband and I enjoy spending time with our family, friends, and fur babies!"

"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."

Amanda
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, and 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!"
