Rachel, Dr. Davenport's wife, received her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1982. After practicing full time as a hygienist for nine years, she took time off to raise their two sons. She returned to dentistry in 2007 by joining our practice, first as a part time hygienist, then as a full time business manager. In her spare time, Rachel enjoys reading, making jewelry, baking for others (especially around the holidays), walking the dog and visiting the Carolina mountains and beaches.
Amanda graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. She began as a part-time hygienist in our practice later that year. After a short period of time, it was evident that she exhibited the ideals we wanted in a team member and we offered her a full-time position. She truly enjoys getting to know about her patients and treats each patient based on their individual needs. As you get to know her, you will find that Amanda is very knowledgeable about dental health and the prevention of dental disease. Also a volunteer with the MOM program, she uses her skill and training to help less fortunate individuals in our community achieve a healthy smile. She lives in Mint Hill and is married with 2 sons. She enjoys spending time with her family and working out.
