Laura Dye has been a part of the Winn Smiles family as a hygienist since 2010. She considers everyone at Winn Smiles to be her second family. She and Erica (dental assistant) have been best friends since middle school. Her inspiration to go into the dental field came while she was in high school and she observed Mindy (also a part of the Winn Smiles family) working as a dental hygienist. Although Laura is considered the “quiet one” in the office, if you were to catch her driving in her car, she would be “that girl” at the red light singing at the top of her lungs!
While Laura is not with her Winn Smiles family, she is enjoying life with her husband, Patrick, 3 year old son, Braeden, and her 2 dogs. They love to go on cruises, vacationing at the beach, and snorkeling in Mexico. God, family, and friends are very important to Laura. She sings in a Christian group called “Grace Asylum” that performs at Christmas to raise money for charity organizations and she is member of Candies Creek Church.

She then worked for a prominent periodontist as a hygienist and surgical assistant for 17 years.

Amy is a Dental Hygienist and Marketing Consultant for Winn Smiles. She has enjoyed many careers and had the opportunity to travel around the world; from being a clothing buyer in New York City at the age of 19, while in college, to flying the friendly skies with United Airlines at 21 years old. She had so much fun and got to meet so many interesting people, but nothing has been better than coming to work in the career I have always dreamed of!
Amy decided she wanted to be in the dental field during her sophomore year of high school. In Maine, career options were very limited. She attended the University of Maine and received a degree in Marketing, her second passion, and enjoyed a challenging career. Her dreams of being in the dental field were put on hold, but not forgotten. After marrying her husband in 1996, they moved to an area with more opportunities, she applied to Midlands College in Columbia, South Carolina. When she was accepted, they made a complete lifestyle change and lived on a very limited budget in order to make her dreams into reality- and the rest, is history.
Now that she had the career she always wanted, it was time to start their second journey… A family of Three! Their sweet baby girl, who is now 10 years old and wearing braces, is the center of their world. She maintains straight A’s and keeps them busy with cheering, piano lessons, chorus and spending time in Gatlinburg and Dollywood. People will tell you, “Treasure every moment, because time will pass you by in the blink of an eye.” It is so true, and that is why family time is a top priority for Amy and Mike. You only have one life on earth, make it the MOST AMAZING one!!!
Amy’s mom and her sister have recently moved from Maine to retire and enjoy the beautiful mountains and weather of Tennessee! Amy and Mike are so blessed to have family, great jobs, and friends for a lifetime! Amy is from a very large family. Her mom had eleven sisters and one brother. Mike’s mother had thirteen brothers and sisters. They always have large family reunions where everyone travels from around the country to spend time reminiscing about summers spent at the lake and on the farm. It is Amy’s greatest wish to have all of her family together for the holidays and special occasions, so that her daughter will have the same fond memories of her childhood.
“There is nothing I would have changed on my path to where I am today. Life sometimes throws you curveballs, but I have learned over the years, just wear your protective gear and stay focused!”

“Most mornings over the last 3 to 4 years, I woke up feeling tired and fatigued. I decided to visit my doctor to see if I had an underlying issue. After several tests it was determined I needed a sleep study. The study resulted in “mild sleep apnea” and I was in need of a CPAP device. I am claustrophobic and after trying several devices, I knew I needed to do something else. I began to do my research and found that there was a mouthguard device which helped with mild to moderate sleep apnea. After talking to my doctor they set up an appointment for me with a dentist in Chattanooga for a consult. I mentioned to my dental hygienist at Winn Smiles that I was being sent to a dentist in Chattanooga and she said “we are getting ready to start offering this in our office”! I was so happy I didn’t have to make a trip to Chattanooga when my own dentist will offer the same thing here in Cleveland!
I have been sleeping with the mouth guard device for about 3 months and feel so much better! At 57, my biggest priority is my health. I’m sleeping better and waking up feeling rested and refreshed, eating clean and exercising, not to mention losing 15lbs! Thank you Dr. Brad and staff for helping change my life!”
