Meet the Central Kansas Dentistry Team
Gentle and Compassionate – This Team Really Cares!
Stacy, Registered Dental Hygienist
Stacy grew up in Osborne and then moved to Salina for her high school years. She attended Kansas State University and then received her Hygiene Degree from Wichita State University. Stacy joins Central Kansas Dentistry with loads of experience-first practicing in Texas and then, Colorado. She moved back to Kansas to be closer to family and we are happy she did! “It has been fun returning home to Kansas and getting to know the patients here at CKD. I have enjoyed hearing stories from patients who knew my parents in their younger years. I am incredibly blessed to work with such a talented Doctor and team. In my 35 years in dentistry, I don’t believe I have ever worked with a more talented group.
We strive to treat every patient that walks through the door with the utmost respect. CKD tailors a personalized plan that fits each patient’s wants and needs-I love that! I have seen some life-changing transformations, here. I look forward to meeting you!”
Stacy and her husband, Gerry, make their home in western Ellsworth County. They have two grown children and two grandchildren. In her free time, Stacy loves taking care of and riding her two horses, traveling, hiking, and dogs.
Carmon, Certified Dental Assistant
With advanced, postgraduate training and a certification from the National Dental Assisting Board, Carmon has worked with Dr. Williams for over 30 years! She is cross-trained in dental assisting and front office work, which makes her indispensable in every way. “Working here is not just a job for me. I truly love what I do,” says Carmon. “I think the art of being nice is almost lost in today’s world. But I feel that our office makes people feel that we care. We always strive to be nice and compassionate with every patient. Getting to know people as friends — not just patients — can also help people feel comfortable about seeing the dentist again. Helping people feel like smiling again is a wonderful thing!”
In her free time, Carmon loves spending time with her family. Carmon and her husband, Clayton, have two grown sons (one of which is married) and one grandson. Carmon also loves to read and to help kids with youth activities at her church.
Mychel, Registered Dental Hygienist
Mychel received her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Kansas State University and her Hygiene from Wichita State University. Besides being one of our two awesome hygienists, she also wears a couple of other hats for CKD. When Mychel isn’t working as a hygienist, she can be found helping out in the front office and sometimes chairside with Dr. Williams. “I love educating patients and answering any questions they have,” says Mychel. “Getting to know our patients as people rather than just a mouth is really important. We truly care about each person that comes through our door. It is amazing to see a patient gain back their full confidence and smile after the completion of their dental work. It’s priceless!”
Mychel lives with her husband, Adam, and three growing children-Mykenna, Lakyn, and Case in rural Ellsworth. In her free time, she loves to travel, cook, read, work outside in the yard, take the kids on walk adventures and spend time with family and friends.
Shaun, Treatment Coordinator
Shaun is our Treatment Coordinator. She received her P.H.T. (Putting Hubby Through) in 1990! When you call Central Kansas Dentistry, odds are that you will speak with Shaun. Shaun has an amazing way of making you feel like a million bucks-you can almost see her smiling on the phone. And that isn’t a show. When you walk through the door, Shaun will make you feel right at home! If Shaun can’t answer something for you, she will make sure to connect you to the right person on the team that can. “For many years, I have heard so many wonderful stories about the amazing changes so many patients made for themselves. Now, working in the office, I get to see them. We literally have a celebration when a patient finishes their smile and I love that! As the first person to speak with many of our new patients, I get to see the personality changes that happen. So many times, a patient is a bit shy when they first come in. Then, when they complete their smile, there is no shyness, anymore! It’s awesome to be a part of that.”
Shaun and her husband–Dr. Williams–have been married for over 38 years. They have four grown children and seven grandchildren (so far). In her free time, Shaun loves to spend time with family, traveling, riding the motorcycle with her husband, and cooking.
