Hi, my name is Beth Brown.  I have worked at Franklin Dental going on 30 years.  I am married to Dean and we have 3 children; Clay, Ryan, and Hope.  I recently went back to school to further my education and obtained a degree in Professional Counseling, which I believe helps me in the dental profession, especially with patients who have phobias or experience anxiety during treatment.  I am a licensed substitute teacher and you will see me volunteering at school sporting events cheering on the Peebles Indians!

Hi, my name is Michelle Parker.  I have been at Franklin Dental for 5 years now and I am the Office Manager.  I love working in dentistry.  I started out as a Dental Assistant and then finished my Bachelor’s Degree in Management which led me to a career in management in Dental Offices.  I love my job.  I enjoy the patients and helping them make decisions about the right dental care for them and making sure they get the most out of their appointments.  My favorite thing about working for Franklin Dental is the patient-friendly atmosphere.  When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my family.  I am married to Kris and he runs his own small business.  We have 3 children; Alanys, Bladyn, and Cambri.  We enjoy doing things together as a family like going hiking, dirt track racing and being outdoors.  I also love to cook.
