Meet the Team


marietta children's dental teamBeth Phillips – Insurance Coordinator

Hello, my name is Beth Phillips, and I’m the insurance coordinator at Floss Dentistry. I have been part of the Floss family since 2015, and I am available to help you and your family with all insurance questions and concerns. I am originally from Augusta, Georgia and have worked in general and pediatric dentistry for over fifteen years. After obtaining my Bachelors in Communications from the University of Maryland, I worked as a marketing manager in the financial industry. I have been a group exercise instructor since 1994 and consider fitness an important part of my life. Prior to obtaining my bachelors, I received my associate’s degree in dental assisting, which is where I initially grew to love the dental field. I have been happily married since 2014, and we have a beautiful son, Cole, who was born in 2015. Our family finds great joy in the outdoors and spending time traveling and staying active. I love the balance of my wonderful personal life alongside my career with Floss. I am always here to help make your visits with us a positive and enjoyable experience!


marietta children's dental teamAmber Tesch – RDH

Hi! I’m Amber, a dental hygienist at Floss. I graduated from Lanier Technical College in 2006 and began my career as a dental hygienist in general dentistry. I realized, early on, that my greatest enjoyment was interacting with the younger patients. In 2010, I had an opportunity to transition into pediatric dentistry, with Dr. Garza, and I haven’t looked back!

My goal is to provide an enjoyable experience and help patients develop good oral hygiene habits at a young age. Making dentistry fun is what I do ☺! One of my greatest satisfactions comes from watching a patient leave the dental chair with a smile, excited for their next visit. I take pride in being a part of the Floss team and creating a fun environment with my co-workers but, more importantly, creating a positive experience for our patients and families.

Hello! My name is Holly! I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene from Georgia Highlands College. My husband and I have three fur children: two dogs, Oliver and Pearl, and a cat, Ashanti. In my spare time, I enjoy yoga, dance, and being outdoors. I began working in a general practice but fell in love with pediatric dentistry after coming to Floss. I sincerely look forward to welcoming new patients and providing them with a fun experience and excellent care!

Hello, I’m Kim, Lead Dental Assistant at Floss. I have been a dental assistant for 22 years and have worked in all areas of dentistry. I have a degree in History from the University of Central Florida and a Master’s degree in Architectural Preservation from Georgia State University. I love old buildings! In my spare time, I love to run half marathons with fun themes. Walt Disney World has some of the best! I enjoy reading (anything), and traveling, preferably on a cruise. I have been married to Frank for almost as long as I have been assisting, and we have a grown daughter and two rescued German Shepherds.
