Meet Our Dental Team – Springfield, MO

Meet Our Talented,
Caring Team

We wouldn’t be able to accomplish everything we do at Galleria Dental without our caring, skilled team. When you call our office to schedule an appointment or have an insurance question, when you need a dental cleaning, or when Dr. Tolliver is performing treatment, our 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!

Brittany

Registered Dental Hygienist

Brittany studied at Ozarks Technical Community College and is certified in CPR/BLS and nitrous oxide. Today, she is very proud to be a member of the Galleria Dental family! She loves serving patients who genuinely appreciate the work their team is doing and being able to share in their happiness throughout the treatment process.

Originally from Branson, Brittany now lives in the Nixa area. She and her husband have been married since March of 2019, and they have four fur babies together – two dogs and two cats. In her free time, she enjoys taking on DIY home projects, kayaking, and going on long hikes with her husband and their dogs. She also enjoys traveling and has even been to Nicaragua twice to do volunteer dental work!

Nina

Registered Dental Hygienist

Nina is from Portland, OR, and her career in the world of dentistry covers two full decades so far! She attended college in Springfield, MO and completed her dental education at Ozarks Technical Community College. She is additionally trained in local anesthesia and nitrous oxide. Today, what she enjoys most about her job is interacting with each lovely patient on a daily basis.

Nina and her wonderful husband have been married for over 25 years, and they have four daughters and a son-in-law. When she isn’t busy at work, she really enjoys serving her community through her local church’s kids ministry, as well as sponsoring children in need from Ethiopia and Haiti. Here’s an interesting fact about her: before living in Portland, she was actually raised in the USSR and speaks Russian as her native language!

Kecia

Registered Dental Hygienist

Kecia earned her Associates in Dental Hygiene from Ozarks Technical Community College, and her overall career in the dental field spans well over 15 years so far. Her favorite part of this job is an easy answer – the wonderful patients! Meeting new people every day is such a joy.

Kecia hails from Fair Grove and has three children named Hunter, Harley, and Hannah. She and her wonderful husband have been married for 20 years. Outside of the practice, she enjoys spending quality time at the lake; her family actually has a place at Pomme De Terre at the Harbor. Other hobbies include cheering on the KC Chiefs, watching lots of sports (both on TV and in-person at her daughter Harley’s college basketball games), and playing with her two Frenchies and two English Bulldogs.

Whitney

Scheduling Coordinator/Dental Assistant

Whitney attended both OTC and MSU for her college education. Today, she is an Expanded Functions assistant with additional training in CPR. At Galleria Dental, she loves seeing our patients’ happiness when their smiles transform into a sight they can feel proud of!

Originally from Rogersville, Whitney is engaged to her sweetie pie Jordan. Outside of the practice, she exercises several times each week to relieve stress. She’s also very passionate about traveling! So far in her life, she’s been to eight countries, four continents, and two Wonders of the World – with hopefully many more to come.

Sherlyn

Dental Assistant

Sherlyn’s career in dentistry impressively covers over 35 years so far, with almost 20 of them spent right here at our practice. She completed her education at Mineral Area College and is an Expanded Functions assistant with certifications in CPR and nitrous oxide. She loves being able to help people feel more confident about their smiles through her job, as well as making each appointment a genuinely comfortable experience.

Sherlyn is from Bonne Terre originally, and she has one adult daughter. Outside of work, you can often find her listening to music – Elvis is her top choice, with The Beatles a close runner-up. Other hobbies include watching old movies, spending quality time with her daughter, and being a big animal-lover. Her favorites are dogs and flamingos!

Jessie

Dental Assistant

Jessie’s career in dentistry spans almost five years so far, and she never gets tired of being able to give back to the community through dedicated patient care. She attended the dental assisting program at Ozarks Community Technical College and is an Expanded Functions assistant with additional training in restorative care, orthodontics, oral surgery, fixed and removable prosthodontics, CPR/BLS, and nitrous oxide.

A Springfield native, Jessie is happily married with two wonderful children. Outside of working hours, you can typically find her enjoying the outdoors, camping, hiking, fishing, doing housework, or cooking and baking.

Kristin

Office Manager

Kristin is originally from Manes, and she attended Drury University for her education. Today, she’s thrilled to be an integral part of Galleria Dental! When it comes to what she loves most about her job, the answer’s easy – the patients, of course. It has been a joy to meet all of them over time and hear their stories.

Most of Kristin’s immediate and extended family lives in or around Springfield. She has identical twin nephews who are the cutest babies ever (although she may be just a little biased). In her free time, she enjoys getting together with everyone for loud family dinners as often as possible. Other hobbies include camping, kayaking, hiking, traveling, and baking. It’s her secret life goal to start a bakery one day!
