David Office Manager

Office Manager

"My many years of operations management has provided me with a broad range of experiences and leading teams of all varieties. After serving twenty-five years in the United States Air Force, my wife and I now reside back in our hometown of Mount Airy. We have two adult daughters and one granddaughter!"

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!"


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!"



"I was born in Richlands, VA and moved to Mount Airy NC when I was two years old. I graduated with honors from North Surry High School in 2007 and attended Surry Community College, studying Paralegal Technology. I worked as a General Manager for eleven years, with experience in customer service and human resources. I believe that my many years in customer service helps to provide our patients with the best possible care, making it a privilege to work in an office that provides this standard of care for patients! I am a people person and love to help in any way that I can and I look forward to advancing my career and education! I have three amazing children, one daughter, one son, and one step-daughter. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my children, family, and friends."

"Family is not an important thing. It's everything.”- Michael J. Fox.

Here at Dr. Gravitte's office I not only feel like a team member but I also feel like family!


Executive Assistant

"Living in this gorgeous area, I love getting outside and enjoy walking. I also enjoy reading and traveling. I have two children and four grandchildren and I especially enjoy traveling to Alaska where my daughter and two grandchildren reside!

Working with people has always been my passion in life and for the past 20 years I have had the opportunity to do that. I consider myself blessed to be part of such a great team at Dr Gravitte’s office and look forward to working here for many years."
