Meet Our Talented,
Caring Dentistry Team Members

We wouldn’t be able to accomplish everything we do at Galleria Dental of Springfield without our caring, skilled team. When you call our dental office to schedule an appointment or have a dental insurance question, when you need a teeth cleaning, or when Dr. Tolliver is performing treatment, our dentistry team members are there to help however we can. In every way, we hope to give you a positive dental experience that leaves a smile on your face. We can’t wait to meet you in person, but you can get to know us better before you arrive by reading the information below!


Office Manager

Victoria joined our team toward the end of 2022! In addition to studying at the American Public University, she has experience in the dental field from working at an insurance company. Now, her favorite part of her job is helping patients with confusing insurance questions and making sure they walk out of our office with a smile.

As for life outside the office, Victoria loves antiquing with her husband, knitting, and playing drums. In fact, she is planning on starting a band with her husband!


Dental Hygienist

Dental Hygienist Daphne

In addition to having an impressive 28 years of experience in the dental field, Daphne has been an important member of our team for more than two decades now! Before joining us, she attended the University of Missouri – Kansas City, which is where she earned her bachelor of science in dental hygiene. When asked what her favorite part of her job is, she shared that it’s building rapport with patients, educating them on their dental needs, and helping them feel comfortable with their treatment choices.

When Daphne isn’t at the office, she enjoys going on walking trails with her dog, Schatzi, listening to live music, reading, volunteering in the community, and hanging out with friends and family.


Registered Dental Hygienist

Before that, she studied at Missouri Southern State University, earned her associate of science in dental hygiene, completed advanced training in nitrous oxide and local anesthesia, and became a member of the ADHA! For her, the best thing about being a dental hygienist is helping her patients feel comfortable while improving their overall health through oral hygiene.

Some of Libby’s favorite things to do outside the office are going to the lake, traveling, reading, eating sushi, and spending time with her two dogs, Snoop and Kita. Here’s a fun fact about her: she’s half Dutch!
