In February of 2016 we happily added Edie to our Dental Team! With over twenty years experience in dentistry and an upbeat and friendly demeanor, she was a perfect fit for our office. Edie loves working with people. Her desire to be helpful and supportive in any way she can, brings her the greatest joy in her personal and professional life.
Enjoying life with her husband and spending quality time with her two children and four grandchildren are Edie's favorite things to do. With what little time she has left in her day, you will find her relaxing in her garden, sewing up a storm, or enjoying some quiet time reading. We consider ourselves very fortunate to work with her everyday.
We were very fortunate to have Joanie join our staff in June 2017. Her level of caring and competence, combined with 32 years of dental experience, make her a perfect fit for our family-friendly office. Since Joanie enjoys all aspects of dentistry, we were delighted to add a staff memeber capable of working in the clinical and front desk areas of our practice. Since Joanie's greatest joy in dentistry is "making people smile again," we know you will be pleased to meet her in whichever area she is working.
Joanie says that dedication to her family is what defines her, married with two daughters, she devotes an enormous amount of time to her girls as they perfect their skills in ballet studies and lacrosse. On any given day you will find her working, spending time with her family, sunning at the shore or chasing after her two dogs and two cats. She's one busy lady, but she loves every bit of it.
Joanna joined our team in 2010 and received her certification in dental assisting from Delaware Technical Community College. It is Joanna’s heart for children and her dedication to giving her best to our young patients that we appreciate and recognize the most.
When Joanna isn’t working, she is taking care of her home and family. She shares her life with her high school sweetheart and husband Temious, and their four children. While raising her children is her most precious preoccupation, Joanna enjoys spending time with her extended family and friends, and likes watching football, taking long walks, and planting flowers!
Margie graduated from Delaware Technical and Community College in 1979 with and associate’s degree in applied science. She gets much satisfaction from the clinical and educational side of dental hygiene. Her greatest joy on the job comes from seeing patients improve their dental health, and knowing this paves the way to better overall health. Margie has been a part of the Clay & Clay Team since 2005 and is very thankful for the computer skills she has learned in her time here. She loves interacting with patients and learning about their lives, year in and year out.
When not in the office, Margie enjoys spending time with her husband and extended family, exercising, reading, and doing various types of volunteer work.

When not at work, Melissa has fun enjoying life. She spends time with family and friends, shows up at the gym, and takes great pleasure in spoiling her niece and nephew.
In 2008, Nina came to our office as a student in the Delcastle Technical High School dental assisting program. She was hired several months before graduating, having impressed the doctors with her drive and her personality. Helping people is both Nina’s job and her gift. She loves helping people be more proactive and educated about their oral health, and working with children and special needs patients is fulfilling and meaningful to her.
In her spare time, Nina likes baking, reading, watching movies, family time, and eating sushi with friends. We think she sleeps, but we’re not sure!
