Meet the Team

Meet the Higgins Dental Team: We’ll Keep You Smiling!


Dental Hygienist

I handle everything from X-rays and dental charting to periodontal charting, in order to help Dr. Higgins make a complete diagnosis. I also provide routine and specialized cleanings and offer a lot of oral health education, always based on the patient’s needs.

I really enjoy working with people and helping them either to maintain or to make changes to improve their oral hygiene. I love seeing the before and after with people, and knowing I was part of their success. Everyone at Higgins Dental works together as a team. We make visits fun, and that keeps our patients smiling!

Originally from Jacksonville, I completed my BS at FSU in Tallahassee and my AS in dental hygiene from FSJC. I am happily married and enjoy spending my free time with my husband and our three dogs. We like being outdoors, being with family, and cheering for FSU and the LA Dodgers.




I make sure each patient is well cared for and comfortable while assisting Dr. Higgins during procedures.

It’s rewarding to create relationships with our patients and work alongside a doctor I believe in. We always keep it fun here and make patient comfort the top priority!

Originally from Callahan, in my free time I enjoy going to the beach, hiking, and reading, writing, and watching horror movies.



Office Admin

I handle all administrative duties for Higgins Dental and enjoy keeping us organized and flowing well. This ensures our patients have productive and enjoyable visits and our team is supported as they deliver care.

We have a laidback and fun-loving environment, which makes coming here a pleasure, for the staff and our patient family. Everyone is smiling and supportive!

I’m a northeast Florida native, recently married my best friend Rolando, and have a Mini Schnauzer. I enjoy reading, crafting, and being with my family in my spare time.



Dental Hygienist

I make smiles sparkle! I clean teeth, take X-rays, record periodontal measurements, and educate our patients about their oral health.

My favorite part of my job is being able to make a difference in my patients’ oral health and see how that improves their lives. I love working with Dr. Higgins and the rest of our team because we keep the office light-hearted and yet produce excellent results!

Originally from south Florida, my husband and I moved to Jacksonville in 2017. I love tacos, turtles, and teeth! In my free time, I like working out at the gym, relaxing at the beach, spending time with my dog at the dog park, and shopping at St. John’s Town Center.




Orthodontic Manager

I am responsible for coordinating our patients’ orthodontic treatment, managing orthodontic cases, and providing chairside assistance to Dr. Higgins. It is a pleasure to be a part of creating beautiful smiles and making our patients comfortable and happy. I attended Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia and attend continuing education classes on a yearly basis in regards to the latest dental techniques, practice management, orthodontics, and team building.

Dr. Higgins is such a fantastic dentist, is down to Earth, and is extremely educated in multiple practice disciplines. He is an absolute pleasure to work with. Our office staff is also amazing. Each of them creates a unique and friendly atmosphere to our practice. They are top notch and extremely professional. This perfect combination keeps our patients happy, and they actually look forward to visiting our practice!

I am very proud of my adult children and have plenty of time for a diverse and fun life. Water sports, bicycling, mountains, and traveling are my thing. In addition, in my free time, I make stained glass as a hobby. The love of my life is my 14-year-old Chihuahua named Nikki. She is the jam in my jellyroll!
