Meet our Experienced Team
Caring for you every step of the way
Berkley is one of the friendliest people you will ever meet. She joined us in 2015, and has been a wonderful addition to our team. She has the personality to make you feel at ease and the gentle touch to promote healthy gums gently. Her father is a dentist in Bristol, Tennessee and she gained much of her confidence and inspiration for excellence in dentistry from him. She and her husband, Tyler Richardson, live here in Cookeville.
Jenny Miller graduated from dental hygiene school from St. Petersburg College in 1994 and since then, she has loved everything that dentistry has to offer. Jenny and her husband (also her high school sweetheart) moved to Tennessee in 2007 from Florida. They love living in the country with their six cats and two dogs. Her favorite things to do are hang out in the pool with her four godsons, scrapbook, cook and bake.
