Meet The Dental Center Team
Ms. Amy Howard, Office Manager
Amy has been in the dental field since 2001 and a part of our team starting in 2013. She has always enjoyed meeting new people and helping them achieve their dental needs. Smiles matter to her. She loves being part of a team that works together and gives back to the community. She has a son and a daughter that she enjoys spending time with on her days off. In her free time, she likes to travel, scrapbook, being outdoors and having quality time with family and friends.
Mrs. Jeanette Jewsbury, Dental Assistant
Jeanette has been at Easley Dental Center starting Jan 2017. She attended Gwinnett School of Dentistry in Lawrenceville, GA and graduated in 1997. She lived her entire life in Georgia, until moving to Easley in Nov 2007. Jeanette loves to work with the patients and participate in creating confidence through a nice smile. Dentistry has given her a chance to use her artistic skills and help patients at the same time. It has been a wonderful career and has made it possible to have a lot of quality time with her family. She got married in Oct 2007 to her husband, Steve, and has three sons, Brayden, Cory and Pat. They also have six Italian mastiffs and a green-winged macaw that keeps her busy. When not at work, Jeanette enjoys spending time with her family, going to church, whitewater rafting, traveling and working out.
Sandra Pierce, Treatment Coordinator/Front Office/DA
Sandra is a front office administrator at Easley Dental Center. She has been in the dental field since 1999. She started employment with Easley Dental Center in 2008.
She loves to see our patients excited about a new smile and also overcome their fear after they see us for the first time. She got into dentistry because I enjoy working with people and helping them realize their potential for a beautiful smile.
She moved to Easley in 2004 and resides with her husband and son. She also has a son and daughter that live in Oregon with two beautiful grandkids. She transferred from Oregon for her husband's employment. She loves to ride motorcycles as a passenger only, camp & swim in her pool. She loves to spend time reading books and catering to her son.
Mrs. Andi Merchant, Dental Assistant
Andi has been with Easley Dental Center since 1992. At that time Dr. Boland owned the practice. Dr. Boland was wonderful and gave her invaluable on-the-job training. She continues on as an assistant after Dr. Strange joined the practice in 1998, and has been his assistant ever since. Prior to dentistry, Andi graduated from Maric College in San Diego as a Certified Medical Assistant.
"I take pride in being responsible for patient care and assisting Dr. Strange in all procedures. My favorite part of my job is meeting new people and providing comfort and knowledge. Hugs after a difficult or unexpected appointment is the best part of what I do. I love catching up with long-time patients (AKA friends) and it's the highlight of my day!"
Andi has been married to her best friend, Bill, since 2011. Her son, Tobey and beautiful wife, Chelsea, have a son, Eli (who is a treasure). Tobey and Chelsea are expecting twins in the Spring 2017. Andi and her husband adopted their four-legged son, Chip, from a shelter in 2011. Chip has brought love and joy to their home ever since. Andi is a proud member and supporter of ASPCE and Humane Society. She always encourages pet adoptions from your local shelter.
Mrs. Linda Boerger, Registered Dental Hygienist
Linda has been a registered dental hygienist since 2001 after graduating from Greenville Tech with an Associates Degree in Health Science. She has been a part of Easley Dental Center for most of her career and enjoys the relationships she has developed with her patients. Making them feel comfortable and helping them maintain good oral health are her top priorities. Linda is an avid college football fan, especially Ohio State. Go Bucks! She is married to her high school sweetheart and she and her husband have two children.
Christy Henley, RDH
Christy is one of our dynamic hygienist at Easley Dental Center. She has been in dentistry since 1993 and joined our team in 2016.
She loves to work with all patients and overcome their obstacles, especially if it's fear or working through a past traumatic dental experience. She is able to communicate and educate patients so that they can make confident, informed decisions. It is very rewarding for her to see patients over time and see the changes in their lives.
Christy and her husband are empty nesters and enjoy coming and going as they please. She is a season hobbyist. They ride a motorcycle in the warmer weather and like to spend time in the mountains hiking, finding waterfalls and taking in the beautiful mountain views. In the cooler months she is a big fan of warm, sandy beaches, sunrises and sunsets.
