Meet the Team



Dental Hygiene Assistant

Katlyn is Dr. Leach’s super helpful hygiene assistant, who joined the team in June of 2023. She grew up in Georgia and now lives in Kennesaw. 

“I love working with children and getting to teach them important things about their  oral health, starting habits young!”

Katlyn has been in dentistry for going on four years. When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her husky, Colt, and trying out new local coffee shops!



Dental Hygiene Assistant

Arianna works with Katlyn as one of our dental hygiene assistants! She grew up in Canton, and graduated high school from Creekview High School, right down the road from our Canton office! She has been in dentistry for almost 5 years now.

“I find it very gratifying to help others and play a part in giving them confidence in their smiles!”

When Arianna isn’t at the office, she enjoys spending quality time with her two wonderful kids, and creating fun Cricut designs! 



Registered Dental Hygienist

Jennifer is one of our amazing dental hygienists! She has been in dentistry for over 32 years, and has been a pediatric hygienist for 27 of them! She has a strong drive to bless our patients and ensure they are excited about dentistry, in a way they can be comfortable and love coming into the office. She has been passionate about this since seeing her mother scared of the dentist as a child!

“I have been so blessed since joining in July! Dr. Leach’s pediatric team and their love for promoting giggles and happiness matches mine!”

When Jennifer is not at work, she is spending time with her two sons, her new daughter-in-law, and all the kids she works with at Browns Bridge Church.




Registered Dental Hygienist

Michelle, is our other incredible hygienist who joined our team in the fall of 2018 with 25 years of prior experience. She makes each visit a positive one by ensuring that every patient feels comfortable and relaxed. She has made an incredible impact on our team and continues to bring positive energy both in the office and at community events.

“I chose to go into dentistry because of my own experience as a child. I was afraid and they had an assistant who would hold my hand and get me through my procedure. Then after working as an assistant in a general practice, I realized how many adults were uncomfortable because of their childhood experience and I thought maybe if I worked with children I could change their views on going to the dentist for the better!”

Michelle grew up in the Midwest and moved to Atlanta upon graduating high school. She attended the Medical College of Georgia where she earned her Bachelor of Science – Dental Hygiene degree. While in college, she met Mike, her husband and they have a daughter, Alexandria, who is presently in Nursing School. When Michelle is not working, she can be found reading, hiking and enjoying time with her family and their cat, Taz.
