Our Team

Kasey Oliver

Kasey Oliver

Business Manager, Dental Assistant

Kasey started her career in dentistry when she graduated with her Dental Assistant certificate from Wichita Area Technical College in 2000, Wichita KS. Since then she has been trained to work in Oral Surgery, Implant Dentistry, Endodontics, General Dentistry, Cosmetics, Prosthetics, Office Administration and Practice Management. Her vast knowledge of dentistry as a whole makes her a great resource for our patients and our team. She has been with Dr. Jenkins since 2009.

Kasey loves cosmetic dentistry the most. Making someone feel better about the appearance of their teeth and seeing their big smile in the end is the best part! And as a bonus, helping patients overcome their fear of the dentist is her goal! While in her care, you can be confident to receive the best and most relaxing treatment possible.

Kasey and her husband Layne moved to Rincon GA in 2007 with their 3 children. Their kids are very involved in sports, band and art. She and her husband are youth leaders in their local church. When she’s not at a soccer game or church activity, you will find her with a book, watching a funny movie, or traveling!

Alyssa has been with us since 2012. Her passion in our practice is listening to her patients and providing them with the best treatment possible by thorough care, her gentle touch and education not only about their dental needs, but their overall health.

Sally

Sally

Registered Dental Hygienist

Sally recently joined the team at Bluffton Dental Care where she is a Dental Hygienist. 

She grew up in cold, snowy Massachusetts and being an avid skier, moved to Colorado to continue doing what she loved to do. After 6 years, and a few injuries she moved to Maine, which is where she went to the University of Maine to become a Dental Hygienist, graduating in 1981.

She gets great satisfaction from educating people about how to keep their teeth and to improve their overall health for their lifetime. She works with the patient’s physical abilities, dental aptitude, and their level of willingness to give it a try. 

She moved to warm, sunny HHI in 1991 with her three boys who were ages 7, 4 and 2 at the time. They are all grown up now and she has a grandson who is 11 years old already. 

She loves dogs (well, all animals) and has 2 rescues, Lola and CaliSue. She’d rescue 50 more if she had room for them. 

Sally loves to travel and to make that a possibility more often, she and her husband bought a 1972 Airstream Argosy 4 years ago. They have taken it all over the country. The dogs love campgrounds and they get a lot of rest while riding in the car from one destination to the next. Her husband calls the trailer a Money Pit but they love it anyway. 

For other spare time activities, she enjoys cooking and baking. She also loves to redecorate, make quilts (of all sizes), make clothes, knit, crochet, and read a good book.

Luisa

Luisa

Dental Assistant

Luisa is a native to Tampa, FL but began her career in the dental field in New York where her and her husband were stationed for 3 1/2 years. There she learned to assist the dentist and orthodontist, as well as the front desk. Her passion for dentistry started young because she was influenced by her mother who is a dental assistant. She believes her knowledge of procedures and ability to create bonds with patients is a great asset to Bluffton Dental Care. As she immerses herself in the field she ultimately hopes to become a dental hygienist where she can work more closely with patients. Currently she works at the front desk on administrative duties and assisting Spanish speaking patients. In her spare time she enjoys traveling and sight-seeing with her husband.
