Shelley Oliver, Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello, my name is Shelley.  I’ve worked for Dr. Hubbard since 2006, and my primary duties are cleaning teeth, treating my patients’ gum disease and assisting the staff in any areas needed. I try to treat patients the way that I want to be treated – with kindness and respect. I always want them to be as excited to see me as I am to see them. When I have a patient who has come in really fearful and they leave saying that the visit wasn’t so bad, I know I’ve done my job well.

I am married to David, and we have three dogs, Suebee, Chloe, and Bits and one cat, Spock. I enjoy reading and cooking, but during the summer, it is all about camping, swimming and grilling out with friends and family .

Gretchen Forney, Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello, my name is Gretchen.  I began my dental career in 1986 as a dental assistant.  I graduated from Armstrong State College in 1994 with an Associate Degree in Dental Hygiene.  I found my dental home here with Dr. Hubbard in 1996.  

I chose dentistry based on my first positive dental experience when I was 15 years old.  From that point on, it has been my purpose to provide excellent, comfortable care to all patients.  Being provided with the latest technology enables me to provide better care for each patient.  We personalize treatment based on patient needs.  I strive to provide care based on each patient’s total body health, not just their oral health.

I have two children, Jarred and Taylor.  Both are students at GSU.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family.

Kim Berry, Front Office Assistant

Hi, my name is Kim and I’ve helped in the day-to-day operations of the front desk since 2008.  I answer phone calls, verify insurance coverage, and most importantly, greet patients when they come into the office. I am very proud of Dr. Hubbard’s accomplishments.  It makes my job easy when I get to brag about all our office has to offer.

I have been married to my husband Mark, since 1990.   I enjoy watching my son Nolan play shortstop for his high school baseball team.  My cat, Puddin showed up at a cookout 3 years ago and never left.  She is spoiled rotten.  My family and I enjoy traveling the world, watching UGA football, Duke basketball, and dog sitting for our neighbors.
