Meet The Team

Kayla Scott, Dental Assistant

Originally from Lugoff, SC, Kayla now resides in Cassatt and has more than four years of experience in her field. She absolutely loves working with Dr. Own and our caring, compassionate staff. She thinks they make a great team, welcoming our patients like members of our own family. Kayla enjoys her job for many reasons, particularly because it presents her with the opportunity to meet and talk to new patients. She is happily married and has two children, and she truly enjoys spending quality time with her family.

Jessica Hodges, Dental Hygienist

Jessica joined our team in May of 2015, and has offered outstanding care for Camden, SC patients. A Clemson grad, Jessica is dedicated to helping patients achieve and maintain their healthiest smiles with thorough twice a year cleanings, at-home care recommendations, and patient education. Jessica has wanted to be a hygienist since she was a child, and enjoys working in a stress-free environment with coworkers who feel like family.

Originally from nearby Hartsville, Jessica loves spending time with family and friends, shopping, running, relaxing, watching TV, lounging by the pool or on the beach, and following Clemson athletics especially tailgating at football games.

Brittany Coates, Practice Manager

Brittany joined our team in 2013 as our scheduler. She is friendly, laid back, and loves working with technology and our patients. That makes her the perfect person to schedule appointments using our office’s computer and phone. You’ll also find that same laid back feeling all throughout our office. Making patients feel comfortable and welcome is what Brittany and the rest of our team are all about.

In her spare time, Brittany enjoys spending time with her daughter. Whether they’re shopping, playing at the pool, or watching Dora the Explorer, being with her is a joy.
