Meet the Team
DR. ALLAN RICE
After graduating high school from Houston Academy, I attended college at the University of Alabama. In 1994, I graduated from the UAB School of Dentistry and began a one-year teaching fellowship at the university. After my fellowship, I went into practice with Dr. Charles Smith until he retired, which led me to begin Ozark Family Dental in 2002. I love spending time with my beautiful wife, Laura, and two children, Laney and Dylan. When I'm off work I love hunting, fishing, Alabama football, and family!
Born and raised in Columbia, AL, I graduated from Houston County High School and began my career in the medical field in 1989. Over the following 30 years, I developed my customer service & accounting skills which prepared me for my current role at Ozark Family Dental. I am married with three wonderful children and a grandson. I joined my work family in 2017 as Office Manager/Administrator and have loved every day of serving our local community. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, camping (in the camper of course), and spending time with family!
I have been happily working for Dr. Rice as his Patient Coordinator since August of 2018. I am from Echo, Alabama, and currently reside in Dothan, Alabama with my fiancé, Aaron. When I am not with my kids, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, doing crafts and DIY projects, going to concerts, and catching rays at the beach. I love working for Dr. Rice and serving smiles to my community!
I am originally from South Florida but have lived in the Enterprise area since 1995. I started my career in nursing but decided it wasn’t the path I wanted to take; that’s when I discovered my love for teeth! In 2009 I completed my ADHP to earn my degree in hygiene. With over 20 years of experience in the dental field I began working for Dr. Rice in March 2018. I am so blessed to part of his wonderful staff whom I consider my extended family. In my time off of work I love spending time with my husband, Marty, our three girls, Beverly, Chloe, and Cassie, and two dogs, Dolly and Jack.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I grew up & still live in the small town of Skipperville, Alabama. I graduated from GW Long High School and have an Associate’s Degree in Science. I've been in Dentistry since 2015 and finished the Alabama Dental Hygiene Program in 2018 to become a Registered Dental Hygienist. My husband, Justin & I have been married since December 2017, and we have a chocolate lab named Duke who is our baby! In my time away from work I love hanging out with family and friends, traveling, reading, shopping, and getting my nails done. I love teeth & I love my job!
Registered Dental Hygienist
Originally from South Florida, I grew up in Alabama and am proud to call it my home! Serving as a Dental Assistant and a Registered Dental Hygienist, I have spent the last 17 years working to give excellent care for each patient’s oral health. While my job can be challenging, it is well worth the reward, and being surrounded by such a great work-family gives every day a new joy. I have two children, a dog, and a cat whom I love seeking new adventures with. Simply put, I am a woman who loves the outdoors with a life-long passion for teeth!
I grew up in Headland, AL, and have lived in Ozark for over two years now. I have grown to love this small town and the local community! My fiancé, Gus, and I are soon to get married and we are so excited. We have 2 dogs, Josie Mae and Bentley, that we adore. In my spare time, I enjoy laying in the sun, getting my nails done, going to the river, snuggling my dogs, and being around family and friends! I feel so lucky to work for Dr. Rice and have grown so close to all of the amazing girls that work alongside me every day.
I grew up in Jack, Alabama and have been in Dentistry at Dr. Rice’s office as an assistant since June 2017. I have grown to love dentistry and couldn’t picture myself doing anything else! I love my job, and I love helping patients leave with a smile on their face! My husband, Jacob and I have been married since June 2019 and have a sweet Red Heeler puppy, Gunnar, who we love so much. In my spare time I love to go to the beach, lake, river, and spend time with family and friends!
