Our Lynchburg Dental Staff
Michele Minnick, Office Manager
As Office Manager for Dr. Midkiff, I have been a part of our growing practice for 14 years. During that time, it has been a constant learning process for me. Even though I have worked in the dental field for 37 years, beginning as a receptionist, there are always new innovations in dentistry and is a challenge to keep up with everything new. One of the things I love most is the interaction I have with our patients and being able to do whatever is needed, from reception to financial administrator. I love being around people and feeling like I have a purpose to be here every day. I hope to be a part of our office family for a long time.
Originally from Richmond, I married a Lynchburg native and have lived here ever since. I have 2 sons and daughters-in-law and 3 grandchildren. My favorite hobbies are spending time with my children and grandchildren, family vacations, or just relaxing with a good book.
Anne Wilson, Dental Assistant
Since I was eight years old, I have wanted to work in a dental office because I wanted to be a part of giving people a smile that they could feel good about. I found an office that was willing to give me a chance where I met Dr. Midkiff. I started as an assistant to the hygiene department while I finished a program for chairside assisting. That's when I started to assist several dentists in the office. When Dr. Midkiff decided to open his own office, I was hired to be his Dental Assistant and my dream came true. I love my job and the care that we offer our patients. To be able to see the fruits of our work in their smiles has been a fulfilling career. Dr. Midkiff is a wonderful dentist and boss! I haver lived in Lynchburg all my life. I have a wonderful husband, daughter and son-in-law.
I am now a new grandmother as of Thanksgiving Day, 2010. I am also devout Christian and love serving Lord and Savior who makes all things possible.
