Lanaie is one of the newest members of the Longleaf Dental Family! She started March 2021 as our Treatment Coordinator. She has lived in Waycross, Georgia, but not after moving a handful of times! Lanaie was born in Marietta, Georgia, and moved to Hilliard, Florida at the age of 7. After graduating from high school Lanaie moved to the west coast to San Diego for 2 years before moving back to Florida. After all of those moves, Lanaie said she is happy to return to Georgia’s red clay! In 1997, Lanaie received her EDA.

In Lanaie’s free time she loves to spend time with her family, fishing, and traveling to see our great nation (especially the beaches)! Lanaie has an amazing husband with whom she has three grown sons with and “the best grandson”. 

We are excited to have Lanaie working with us here at Longleaf Dental as our Treatment Coordinator. Lanaie’s most rewarding part of her job is taking care of patients!

When Teresa is not busy helping patients at Longleaf Dental she is gardening, reading, or going to the mountains.  Her favorite vacation is when she went to Belize. The friendly face that Teresa has comes from her favorite quote which is “to do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. We are confident that you will love talking to Teresa to help you with finances!

Cindy has been with the Longleaf team since March 2016! She is the first smiling face that will greet you when you step foot in the door.

Anyone who is a patient at Longleaf Dental knows that Sharon’s smiling face is the last one you see before you walk out the door. We have been fortunate to have Sharon serve as our “Financial Coordinator” since 2007. She is confident in knowing that our doctors and staff are committed to providing quality care to all patients. Similarly, Sharon also shares the same sentiment of commitment when it comes to meeting our patients financial needs’. 

Sharon grew up in Juliette, GA, and has been in the Albany area since 2004, currently living in Leesburg. She graduated from Mary Persons High school and attended Crandall Junior College for 2 years, majoring in computer programming. Fun fact: Her grandfather’s general store was the Whistle Shop Cafe where Fried Green Tomatoes was filmed. 

When she's not busy helping patients with financial matters, you can find Sharon spending time enjoying the peaceful outdoors or deer hunting with her husband, Robert. She also loves spending time with her wonderful, caring family, who she says are all great cooks with great values. Sharon enjoys working at Longleaf and considers her work family as her “second family” 

We know you will love working with Sharon and feel comfortable having her assist you with your financial needs.

We have had the privilege of having Kelly work at Longleaf Dental since 2009, but our relationship with her goes way back way further than that. Having a long-time patient of the practice, we knew she would be a perfect fit for our team. Kelly has worn many hats at Longleaf, currently serving as our Hygiene Coordinator. With her friendly, outgoing personality, our patients enjoy working with her just as much as she enjoys working with them. 

Kelly was born in Macon, Georgia, and has lived in Albany since 1975. In 2019 they relocated to Morgan to re-do her husband's grandparents' 1930's farmhouse, which they now call home. She has been married to her husband, Tommy, for 30 years. Their son, James, works in Valdosta and is in school at Valdosta State University.
