My team is a brilliant group of people who are extremely dedicated to learning the latest orthodontic procedures and techniques, and to providing the highest level of care to our patients. They are friendly, outgoing, and the most pleasant group of people with whom I am blessed to spend my working hours.
— Dr. Eberting
Clinical Coordinator/Lab Technician
“I love when my patients are excited about getting their braces and leave with a big smile full of metal!”
Anabel, a registered dental assistant, assists Dr. Eberting with a range of orthodontic procedures, in addition to managing the clinical area, maintaining inventory, and fabricating appliances. She also provides translation services for our Spanish-language patients and families.
When she’s not working, Anabel enjoys time with her beautiful daughter Zelda. She loves being outside on warm days, running, dancing, taking walks, camping, and swimming. She also enjoys being a couch potato every now and then too!
“I love seeing the change in a patient's self-confidence and over-all demeanor once they have received orthodontic treatment. It can absolutely be life changing.”
Missy keeps our practice running smoothly. She handles HR matters, including negotiations for employee benefits, overseeing personnel policies, and processing employee payroll. She also manages the daily schedules and accounts receivable, and ensures we are compliant with state and federal guidelines.
Originally from West Virginia, Missy has lived in the Knoxville area for more than 20 years. Her four Chihuahuas and one cat keep her quite active and busy, but in her spare time, she enjoys gardening, vacationing to the beach, being active in her church, and spending time with her son.
Mascot and Greeter
“I love walking around the office and making new friends. I especially love it when people want to pet me!”
Oscar is our mascot and patient greeter extraordinaire! Since Oscar is a black pug, his dental education is limited. He knows words like “outside,” “food,” “upstairs,” and his name. He’s not so great with “come” or “sit,” but we’re working on it! Oscar enjoys his time in our office, mostly because Dr. Eberting caters to his every whim, our team takes him outside for walks, and Missy keeps treats for him in her office.
Oscar came to live with Dr. Eberting as a birthday present to his son in 2015. He spends a lot of time sleeping and eating. He loves to go outside and lie on the driveway in the sun. Oscar has been known to bark at people he thinks are strangers. They’re usually scared of his imposing size (not really). He also tends to bark at people on whom he can smell cigarette smoke. If he does this to you, he’s really sorry, but he’s just looking out for your health and wellness!
