Treatment & Insurance Coordinator
Overcoming obstacles for her 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 has been with the practice for three years and enjoys dentistry’s challenges and the opportunity to learn something new every day! She and her husband are both K-State alumni (where she received her B.S. in biology) and love attending sporting events and traveling. They have a 13-pound guard dog named Espe who keeps them safe from all the neighborhood squirrels and rabbits, and a 65-pound lab named Murphy who thinks he’s a lap dog. Moe can’t wait to welcome you to Paola Family Dentistry!
Scheduling & Financial Coordinator
Working at Paola Family Dentistry for the last four years has been wonderful for Challey. She has a B.S. in business from Emporia State University and has found her passion in helping people achieve better oral health! She enjoys catching up with long-time patients and meeting new patients who become part of the PFD family. She feels she has learned so much from everyone at Paola Family Dentistry and enjoys coming to work because the team is a true family. When she’s not at the office, Challey is trying to keep up with her two boys! She and her husband love living in Spring Hill and being a part of the community. She can’t wait to see what the future brings for herself and Paola Family Dentistry.
Being organized and helping others is what Rebecca has valued most about being an administrative assistant over the last eight years, including her year at PFD. She has been excited to learn all she can to best help our patients here! Rebecca moved to the area about 11 years ago and currently resides with her husband Brandon, daughter Milee, and “fur kids” Jack & Diane on their farm by Garnett. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends and working with her husband on their farmhouse. She looks forward to showing you everything Paola Family Dentistry can do for you!

She is from Greeley, where she lives with her husband Mark and their son, Henry.

Registered Dental Hygienist
Being a hygienist is very gratifying for Carissa, especially here at Paola Family Dentistry, where she can provide her patient care in a calm and caring atmosphere in which their comfort and well-being is the main concern. She earned her A.S. in dental hygiene at Apollo College, has been a hygienist for nine years (three here at PFD), and loves being a part of the Paola Family Dentistry team. She and her husband are both locals and recently moved back to the area. She is so thankful to be able to provide her oral healthcare expertise to her own community! When she’s not cleaning teeth, she spends most of her free time helping raise their four-year-old daughter, Hayden. When they 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. Carissa invites you to come find out what extra amenities we have to offer at Paola Family Dentistry!
Registered Dental Hygienist
Meeting new people from all walks of life is one of Jade’s favorite parts of being a dental hygienist. Last year was a busy one for her! She got married, received her A.S. in dental hygiene at Johnson County Community College, and moved to the area, where she joined the Paola Family Dentistry team. She has lived in four different states but plans on calling Kansas her long-term home. When she’s not in the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband Aaron and their two dogs, Haddie and Hank. She is excited to help our patients love their smiles!

She recently moved to Louisburg after attending Washburn University and joined our team. When Morgan is not in the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband Brady and their dog Layla, going to the Lake of the Ozarks, and doing anything crafty.
