Kathy is our patient care/ofﬁce manager. Her goal is to provide premium service to each and every patient, both new and existing.
Once our patients have been evaluated by Dr. Codelli, they meet with her to review the customized treatment plan he has recommended. With her knowledge and compassionate manner she helps the patient feel conﬁdent with their decision to pursue optimum oral health.
Kathy explains the ﬁnancial obligations associated with treatment, summarizes dental beneﬁts, and discusses payment options. She then will coordinate a convenient appointment for their treatment.
She also works closely with our referring doctors’ ofﬁces to ensure that they are kept informed of our mutual patients’ pending or on going treatment. She helps patients schedule appointments that may be necessary at their referring doctor’s ofﬁce to allow the best comprehensive dental care.
Kathy joined our staff in 2000 and has over 30 years of business management experience both in the medical and dental ﬁeld. She attended the University of Kentucky and is a devoted WILDCAT fan.
Her joy in life is her son James, daughter-in-law Katie and her beautiful grandchildren. Kathy enjoys reading and anything to do with interior design. She resides in the North Georgia Mountains with her husband of over 40 years.
Cindy entered dentistry as a second career in 1999 and is Dr. Codelli’s lead surgical assistant. She goes out of her way to create nurturing, trusting and optimistic relationships with our patients to ensure the best specialty care and treatment available in all phases.

She also loves snow-skiing, as well as anything and everything to do with France.
