Daphne Easterling – Office Manager

Daphne Easterling Office Manager

My name is Daphne, and I am the office manager for Henderson – Granberry Orthodontics. I have been with Dr. Henderson and Dr. Granberry for 25 years – they truly have been and are part of my family. I have been a part of and seen numerous changes through the years as I have watched our practice grow into four locations in different cities to better accommodate our patients and community. It is a challenge to see that each office is running smoothly, the needs of our staff and patients are being met, technology is up-to-date and each location is properly staffed. I love establishing relationships with each dentist in our community and working with them to better serve our patients.

My favorite thing about orthodontics is watching the transformation of personalities and the increase in self-confidence that takes place, no matter what age our patients wear braces. I truly believe smiles change lives and increase opportunities. I love each of our employees and am excited to see what each of their futures hold for them.

A native of Mississippi I received my BS degree from the University of Southern Mississippi, my Master’s degree in education from William Carey University and my Specialist degree from the University of Southern Mississippi. When I am not at work I enjoy working in my yard, spending time outdoors and playing with my fur baby “Pax” – I am not sure who rescued who? I have a huge family and love spending time with each of them.

Hi, my name is Carrie! I have been with Henderson – Granberry Orthodontics for 15 years. I was born and raised in Hattiesburg and am married with three children and two grandchildren. In my free time I enjoy running, going to concerts with my husband and watching my children participate in their activities.

I was a patient of Dr. Henderson’s during my later high school years and always had an interest in the dental field. My favorite part of working here is getting to know the patients on a personal level and keeping up with everything they have going on in their lives; from school, to sports and even seeing some grow up and start their lives and have families of their own.

Carrie is the insurance coordinator for our team. She is responsible for answering all of your insurance questions, filing claims and auditing insurance payments as they are received to see that you are receiving proper reimbursement.

Carrie is trained and more than qualified to work in every position in our office and fills in for those positions as needed. How wonderful it is for our team and the patients that she is able to step into a position at any time. Carrie strives every day to make sure that you and your family enjoys your orthodontic experience. She makes a point to know each patient by name and has had a positive impact in the lives of so many of our patients.

Teresa brings 27 years of orthodontic/dental experience to the Henderson – Granberry orthodontic team. She was our clinical coordinator for many years and now serves as our treatment coordinator. After checking into our practice for the first time, Teresa is the first person that sees each new patient. She gathers medical/dental history, charts preliminary findings and shares information about the different phases of treatment applicable to the new patient, answers questions about our office and staff and makes the patient feel right at home by explaining what they will experience while in treatment. Teresa also assists in the clinic, where she has spent 25 years developing her skills, and presents treatment recommendations to the patient/parent once Dr. Henderson has developed his course of treatment specific to that patient.

Teresa is a huge supporter of the University of Southern Mississippi baseball and football teams. She can always be found at the baseball park during the season cheering for the Eagles! She has one son Cameron who just finished nursing school and is her pride and joy! She loves working out, going to the beach and spending time with family and friends.

My name is Angel and I have been in the orthodontic field for over 30 years and with Henderson – Granberry Orthodontics for 25 years of that time. I am married and the mother of two. I enjoy time with my husband hunting and spending time outdoors. I love my position in the lab and enjoy making appliances and knowing that what I make keeps the beautiful smiles that our doctor creates.

While Angel’s official title is lab technician, her other duties include orthodontic assisting and some front desk duties. Because of Angel’s talent we are able to make all of our retainers, RPE’s, Essix, etc. within our office and do not have to outsource fabrication of any appliances. This is great for our patients so that they are able to receive their retainers within a few days of their appliances being removed.

I LOVE WHAT I DO, states Kayla. Working in the field of orthodontics began for me in 2008 and I have been given an appreciation for the art of creating beautiful smiles. As technology has changed I have had the advantage of learning new and innovative techniques! There are no limits when it comes to expanding your knowledge in this field. At the end of the day, I am content in knowing that I was able to have a positive impact on every patient that I had the privilege to serve.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my son Blake and my husband Andrew. Blake loves to play soccer and Andrew loves to play the drums with his band – it truly fills my heart to watch each of them enjoy life so much. Every day is a blessing and I am forever grateful.
