Patient Coordinator

Ellisa joined Spaulding Dentistry as a front office assistant in the fall of 2021. She is a north Georgia native who has over 13 years of medical and dental experience. Her favorite thing about being in dentistry are the patients that come in with a desire to have a beautiful healthy smile and being a part of an amazing team to help that dream come true.

Dental Assistant

In April 2020, Gabee graduated from Atlanta Dental Assistant School. After traveling abroad to Eswatini, formerly known as Swaziland, and working with her family dentist, Gabee found a real passion for restorative dentistry. Providing care to those who are in need of it most, allowed Gabee to use her background in education to teach native Swazis about oral health and hygiene. Gabee graduated with a TEFL certificate from TEFL Academy in 2019 and an ECCE certificate for Early Childhood Care and Education from Chattahoochee tech in 2014. She taught English as a second language in China and south eastern Turkey and is still using those skills today to educate the patients that are part of Dr. Spaulding’s practice. Furthermore, Gabee graduated from Kennesaw State University with her Bachelor’s of Arts in Dance with a concentration in Jazz technique and worked as a professional dancer and teacher for many years.

Gabee’s favorite restorative treatment is Root Canal Therapy. After working with multiple endodontists in the Atlanta area, she has grown to love assisting with the treatment as well as teaching patients that Root Canal Therapy is a way to save the teeth as opposed to extracting them.

Registered Dental Hygienist

I’ve been working in dentistry for almost 13 years. I began my career as a dental assistant helping dentists with fillings, crowns, implants, and other cosmetic/surgical procedures. I wanted to expand my knowledge of Dentistry so I pursued and received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene from Clayton State University in 2013. I also have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Education from Georgia College & State University. I’ve been a practicing dental hygienist for almost 10 years and have practiced in Georgia and New Jersey.

What I love about dentistry is helping patients achieve a smile they want and feel good about. Educating patients on their oral health is a strong suit of mine and I enjoy staying up to date with all the newest techniques and products that will help patients achieve optimal dental health. I’m also very conscientious of patients with dental anxiety and can help them feel comfortable in my chair. I am so happy I found Dr. Spaulding’s team because I know patients are receiving the utmost care here.

In my free time I enjoy working out, focusing on my overall health, and spending time with family, friends and my two year old chihuahua, Jack. I’m also an avid traveler, foodie, museum goer and enjoy listening to all types of podcasts.
