Hi! My name is Danielle and I moved to the Charlotte area in 2015 from the northwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. I found my passion in dentistry and haven't looked back since. I enjoy working with our amazing team and helping patients achieve the smile they've always wanted. When I'm not at work I enjoy traveling, hiking, and spending time with my husband and our 5 cats. I am that crazy cat lady!
Hi! My name is Jada and I was born in Baltimore but have lived in the Charlotte area most of my life. I've stumbled upon an unknown love of

Hi, my name is Rebecka. I moved to the Charlotte area 5 years ago from northern Illinois. I graduated from Central Piedmont Community College in 2016 and have worked with Dr. Moody ever since! I am a mom to three boys and have two 60 pound fur babies. When I am not cleaning teeth I enjoy traveling North Carolina, being with friends, scrapbooking, and going to local car shows with my husband. Dental hygiene and being a part of your oral health is a huge passion of mine and look forward to meeting you.
First dental of Huntersville is not the first dental practice I've worked in, it is my forever home. I enjoy most types of crafting. My craft room is overflowing with project that need to be finished.
Hi everyone, I’m your local dental hygienist, Brenda Flores. I attended the dental hygiene program at Forsyth Tech, in Winston-Salem. As an RDH, my goal is to save teeth; so get ready! I was born in Mexico and brought to N.C. in 1995. As a foreigner, I take opportunities incredibly seriously. I am a DREAMER in all senses! I love having a vision, aim high, and work nonstop to achieve any goal! Stones in my path just fuel my adrenaline to become better than yesterday. I’m super blessed to have an amazing family! My husband and I have two wonderful sons that mean the world to us!! We also have the cutest little toy poodle that brighten our days! I’m also a stylist so when I’m not taking care of patients you can find me at the beauty salon taking care of clients.
I love working with Dr. Moody almost as much as I love my fiancé.
