Front Office

I was born in Atlanta, but have lived in Calhoun most of my life. I attended Red Bud School system’s kindergarten through 12th grade. After graduation, I was blessed to get my dream job as a dental assistant at Van Horn Dental, and I feel very thankful to be working here still. I consider Van Horn Dental an extension of my family, and I thoroughly enjoy the lifelong friendships I’ve created with the many people I have met here. I invite everyone to come and be a part of our family at Van Horn Dental.

I married my high-school sweetheart and best friend, Larry Gilbert, and we have three wonderful children together: Matthew, Hunter, and Mackenzie. God and family are most important in my life. When I find time, I really enjoy spending time at the beach.

Dental Assistant

I was raised in Chatsworth and graduated from Murray County High School in 2009. In 2013, I received my dental assisting certificate from GNTC and was hired by Dr. Van Horn after my clinical rotation at his office. My job has a wide range of tasks, from patient care to having everything ready for the doctor to perform a procedure. Most importantly, I make sure our patients are as comfortable as possible while in our office. The best part of my job is seeing the happiness on a patient’s face after a cosmetic procedure. The smiles really make my day!

I’ve been with my fiancé Coty for ten years now. We do not have children, but I consider my dog Marley my kid. My nieces and nephews keep us busy with their sports, too. One of my favorite hobbies is cooking.

I was born and raised in Calhoun and attended Calhoun High School. I graduated from North Georgia School of Dental Assisting in 2007, as well as from Georgia Highlands College in 2012 with an Associate of Arts in psychology. I’m now studying to obtain a degree in nursing. Working at Van Horn Dental has been such a blessing; we’re all like family and truly care about each other.

At home, I have a son named Zaylen and a Maltese named Harley who is just like a child to me. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, shopping, and traveling. I plan on traveling to all 50 states and have already been to 21 of them!
