Orlando Family Dental Office Adds Dental Assistant to Growing Staff

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - August 24, 2015) - An Orlando family dentist has added a third dental assistant to his growing dental practice.

Dr. Thomas Overmeyer, owner of Overmeyer Family Dental, recently hired the dental assistant Brittany Ogilvie. Dental assistants in Florida must be a graduate of a state-certified program or school and be certified by the state in dental radiography.

As a dental assistant, Ogilvie will be responsible for preparing patients for their dental procedures and assisting Overmeyer Family Dental dentists, Dr. Thomas Overmeyer and Dr. Jessica Overmeyer, during patient treatments.

Ogilvie has been a dental assistant for five years. She worked at a military dental clinic in North Carolina but recently moved to Florida. Dr. Thomas Overmeyer said Ogilvie adds experience and expertise to the office and has been able to help with the increased patient flow.

“Brittany has a great personality and bedside manner with the patients, which comforts and relaxes the patients while they are here. Her dental assisting skills and experience help us at Overmeyer Family Dental to be more efficient,” Dr. Thomas Overmeyer said.

Overmeyer Family Dental, 3221 S. Conway Road, Suite C, provides preventive dentistry, affordable cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry for patients 3 years old to 103 years old. Individual services include fillings, extractions, wisdom teeth extractions, root canals, partial dentures, full dentures, mini and standard implants, porcelain veneers, Six Month Smiles, Invisalign, sleep apnea treatments and general dental procedures. The practice provides mouthguards for patients who grind or clench their teeth, as well as the “Silent Nite” anti-snore device.

Dr. Thomas Overmeyer was born in Fort Wayne, Ind., and graduated high school in Ohio in 1974. In 1977, he graduated cum laude from Ohio State University, receiving his bachelor's of science degree in microbiology in just three years. He then graduated from The Ohio State University School of Dentistry in 1980 and attended a general practice residency program at the Medical College of Ohio at Toledo. After dental school and his residency program, Dr. Thomas Overmeyer moved to Florida and spent seven months as a dental associate before buying his own practice. Dr. Thomas Overmeyer has advanced training in mini and standard implants, Six Month Smiles, Invisalign and LANAP laser gum treatment.

Dr. Jessica Overmeyer, a Florida native, received her bachelor's of science degree in biology from the University of Florida, where she also minored in business and Spanish. She also attended The Ohio State University School of Dentistry, graduating in 2014. She joined her father’s practice last year. Dr. Jessica Overmeyer holds certifications in mini dental implants, Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.

Dr. Thomas Overmeyer bought the Orlando dental office that is now Overmeyer Family Dental in June 1982. Overmeyer Family Dental moved to a new office building in February 1984. The 1,500-square-foot facility was recently remodeled and includes six treatment rooms and state-of-the-art dental equipment. Dr. Thomas Overmeyer uses the PerioLase laser to treat periodontal disease, a method that he has found to be more effective than traditional gum surgery. He also uses digital X-rays to diagnose and educate patients about oral health issues.
