Jayne Sanders | Dental Assistant

I have been in dentistry for 29 years. I’ve had the pleasure of being employed by Dr. Whatley for 10 of those years. I’m very blessed to have a loving second family with my husband Steve, who I have been married to for 12 years. I have two beautiful step-daughters and four wonderful granddaughters. When I’m not working, I enjoy watching movies and relaxing at the beach. I also have two furbabies, Hunter and Sassy.

Nita Summerlin | Dental Hygienist & Front Desk Operations

I have been in dentistry since 1994 where I have worked both the clerical and hygiene aspects of the office. My passion has always been dentistry and to make sure patients have the best experience possible. I enjoy the one-on-one interaction with my patients and learning new things to bring back and incorporate into their wellness visits. I am pleased to be able to work with great staff and an office with cutting edge technology. When I’m not with my dental family, I enjoy all water activities, horseback riding and spending time with my boys.

I have been in dentistry for nine years and a hygienist for four years. I’m so blessed to be able to help people every day and call it my career. I reside in Semmes with my fur baby, Chloe. I love spending my spare time outdoors kayaking, hunting, and fishing. I can’t wait to meet you!
