Office Manager

As our office manager, I do a little bit of everything to make sure the office runs smoothly and effectively. When it comes to our patients, I conduct treatment and sedation consults, insurance management. When it comes to the office, I am the office accountant, and insure budget and financial statements are sound.  I love to watch the transformation of a fearful patient into a confident patient with an amazing smile. Everyone on the team has the same goal: making patients healthy and happy!

I am a proud mother of twins. Born and raised here, salt water runs through my veins. My hobbies include inshore/offshore fishing, ECU football, running and fitness, traveling, golf, beach volleyball, surfing, snowboarding, and spending sunny days at shack with family and friends.



Front Desk Receptionist

I began my career in the medical field, and after working for ten years, decided to switch gears to dentistry! I really enjoy people and interacting with our patients. I answer the phones, greet patients when they arrive, collect payments, and schedule appointments. It’s a pleasure to make sure everything goes smoothly during an appointment. Seeing happy smiles at the end of a visit is a great feeling.

I am the mother of two beautiful daughters. I was born and raised in Carteret County and absolutely love where I live! I enjoy boating, walking, going to the pool, and spending time with my family in my free time.


Dental Hygienist

My favorite part of dentistry is welcoming children and ensuring that their visits are positive and fun. I have had a soft spot for kids since I joined the field in 1990 and kept it when hired by Coastal Dentistry in 1999. I do general dental cleanings, periodontal therapies, and give new patients their first dental exams. My hope is to inspire our patients by providing high quality patient care. My dental team is my daytime family; I am so energized and uplifted by them.

I am married to Capt. Terrell Gould who is the owner/operator of the Carolina Princess. I am an Airbnb hostess, and our permanent guests include our pets: two goats, 20 chickens, four turkeys, four geese, two ducks, two peacocks, two cats, and two dogs. When I’m not running around after them, I like to cook and listen to classical music.   


Dental Hygienist

I have been working at Coastal Dentistry since 1994, and I still love making connections with my patients as I help them achieve healthy, beautiful smiles each day. From educating patients on how to improve their oral care to promoting high standards at the office, I am passionate about my work. I truly want the best for our patients. I am happily married with two sons. I enjoy spending time with my family, and our favorite family spot is “the Cape".



Dental Assistant II and DMRT

I joined the team in 2002 after entering the field of dentistry in 1989. I work chairside during treatments, do lab work, and perform dentomandibular rehabilitation therapies. I love working one-on-one with patients in order to provide an exceptional level of patient care. I do not shy away from hard work and am completely dedicated to providing the highest quality of treatments. It is equally important to me that all patients have a comfortable and feel at ease in our office.

I enjoy the outdoors and love my dogs and cats. I also care for six horses while owning one myself, which is a lifelong dream come true. My most recent hobby of keeping planted freshwater aquarium allows me to enjoy a piece of nature right in my own living room.


Dental Assistant II

I proudly joined Coastal Dentistry in 1995 after working in the field since 1984. I can usually be found assisting Dr. Schweitzer when needed. I am also in charge of ordering supplies, office repairs and maintenance, and record keeping of all inventory. My favorite part of the work is the variety of people and cases that we treat. I am also especially fond of how life changing our work can be. My goal, and that of everyone here, is to help others keep and maintain healthy, beautiful smiles.

I have been living in Carteret County for more than 34 years, and I love it.
