Our Front Office

Betty_062515Betty H. Staines, Office Manager

I attended Madison County High School, Athens Area Tech and the University of Georgia. I have both clinical and office experience in the dental field. I have taken numerous continuing education courses including, but not limited to, Hollander, CPR, Vizilite and insurance-related courses.

Most of the employees and doctors have been together more than six years, which makes our office somewhat different. We care about each other professionally and personally. We strive to show the same care and concern to our patients. We feel that our office is an extension of our family.

On the personal side, I have been employed with Athena Dental Associates since 1988. I enjoy spending time with my two daughters and husband.

After graduating from Elbert County Comprehensive High School in 2004, I received a fast-pitch softball scholarship to Gordon College. After Gordon, I transferred to Athens Technical College and graduated with an Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene in 2008. I was presented with the Hu-Friedy Golden Scaler Award for exemplary clinical skills. Some of my continuing education classes include: Oral Cancer, SureSmile Orthodontics, Air Polishing, and Soft Tissue Management.

I enjoy singing, playing my guitar, and spending time with my family.

It has been wonderful becoming a part of the Athena Dental team. We strive for personalized care for every patient.

Our Assistants

Jessica_Simons_04May2015Jessica Simons, CDA, EFDA

I am a 2004 graduate of Franklin County High School and a 2006 graduate of the dental assisting program at Athens Technical College. I am certified in dental radiology, infection control, and general chairside assisting through the Dental Assisting National Board. I am also certified in expanded functions through the Georgia State Board of Dentistry.

After graduating from the dental assisting program, I joined the Athena Dental Family. I fell in love with the practice while doing my clinical hours assisting with Dr. Blankenship, so it made sense to make Athena Dental Associates my home. We have the greatest patients and team! We go above and beyond to make our patients feel comfortable and important.

In my spare time, I love spending every moment with my husband and our beautiful daughter!
