Meet The Team
  • Overcoming obstacles for patients, be it understanding dental insurance, assisting with financial solutions, or simply working around a patient’s busy schedule is Moe’s favorite part of her job. She enjoys dentistry’s challenges and the opportunity to learn something new every day! She and her husband are both K-State alumni and they love attending sporting events and traveling. Their 13-pound guard dog named Espe keeps them safe from all the neighborhood squirrels and rabbits. They also enjoy spending time with their big families and trying new restaurants near and far. Moe can’t wait to welcome you to Paola Family Dentistry!

  • Being new to the area, Challey has really enjoyed getting to know the patients better and integrating into the community. She and her husband love taking their boat to the lake with their dog Cooper and she enjoys scrapbooking in her spare time. She says the best scrapbook she ever made is of the four years she lived in California because living there was almost like a vacation. Challey and Doug are expecting their first child in November and they are so excited! She looks forward to learning more about dentistry and what she can do to help you achieve dental health.

  • As Dr. Howard's chairside assistant, Candace loves having all the new and updated technology while still being able to work close to home. She has been a dental assistant for 24 years and has been with the Paola Family Dentistry team for over a year. She enjoys meeting new patients and she especially loves how returning patients become friends and feel like family. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with Frank, her husband of 21 years, and their four kids, Kaylee, Kirstin, Kyle, and Kadin. They keep Candace extremely busy with all of their sports but she still finds time to raise Labradors; she loves spending time with her dogs. She looks forward to the opportunity to help you take care of your restorative dental needs.

  • Helping patients establish value and pride in their smiles is a very rewarding career, and Alaina enjoys being able to inspire great confidence in her patients. She has been a dental hygienist for 10 years and is very passionate about her career. She is from Greeley where she and her husband Mark are raising their young son, Henry. She also enjoys spending time with her family, Kansas State athletics, home improvement projects and working on her home landscaping. It has been a wonderful transition for Alaina since becoming a member of the team at Paola Family Dentistry, and she is thrilled to be a part of the family here. Alaina wants to help make you a part of this dental family too!

  • Being a hygienist is very gratifying for Carissa, especially here at Paola Family Dentistry where she is able to provide her patients the care they deserve in a calm and caring atmosphere where their comfort and well-being is the main concern. She has been a hygienist for over 7 years and she loves being a part of the Paola Family Dentistry team. She and her husband are both locals who recently moved back to the area. She is so thankful to be able to provide oral healthcare expertise to her own community!  When she’s not cleaning teeth, Carissa spends most of her free time helping raise their 1 year old daughter, Hayden. When she and her husband are not chasing her around or working on projects at their home, they love spending time at the lake and with their family and friends. Come find out what extra amenities we have to offer our patients at Paola Family Dentistry!
