Pam Decatur Smiles dentist office team memberHi! I’m Pam. I was born in Chicago, IL, but grew up in Athens, AL, and have lived most of my life there. I graduated from Athens High School and attended Birmingham-Southern College. When I met my husband, he was enlisted in the Army. We spent three fun years in Germany before returning to Athens and starting our family. We have two wonderful children, a son and a daughter, and three grandsons who are the light of our lives. I have worked many different jobs during my work career, including working for the Army, working in a funeral home, selling Tupperware, and managing a 24-hour interstate gas station/convenience store/Subway Sandwich Shop. I started working in dentistry by chance in 1996 when I answered an ad for a Receptionist and ended up working for the same dentist for 16 years until he decided to retire. I have been working for Dr. Teichmiller since 2013. My favorite pastimes are spending time with my family, cooking, and reading.


Ashley Decatur Smiles dentist office team memberHi! I’m Ashley. I recently found my passion for dentistry when I began Dr. Teichmiller’s Dental Assisting program, Assist To Succeed. Aside from being a full time Dental Assistant, I help teach the Assist To Succeed program on Saturdays to help others pursue an amazing career. I learn something new everyday and I cant wait to see what my future in dentistry has in store. I was born in Decatur and grew up in Trinity. I graduated from West Morgan High School in 2011. I recently got married on September 30th, 2017. My husband and I have been together for 7 great years. In my spare time I love to fish, hunt and be outdoors.


Natalie Decatur Smiles dentist office in Decatur team memberHi I’m Natalie! I recently moved to the area from Ohio to start a new journey in Huntsville. My dental career started back in 2014 when I completed an Assist to Succeed Program in Ohio. After finishing the program, I began to teach future dental assistants in the program. In the fall of 2015, I began the Owen Community College Dental Hygiene program, graduating in 2017 and receiving my license. Outside of my dental world, my boyfriend, Dylan, and I love to explore new parks with our dog Wallace!
