Debbie was licensed in Dental Hygiene in 1979 and began her work at Stover Family Dentistry in 1987. She is a Gaston County native who needs extra hours in the day to keep up with her family, 3 fantastic sons, Jeff, Charlie, & Jon. She keeps her fingers nimble after hours doing crochet & knit prayer shawls, chemo hats, and assorted items of love! Debbie is thrilled to help patients improve their oral health comfortably with visible results!
"Its easy to work for an office that has been described as 'ya'll are the happiest bunch of folks!'"

Sarah joined the Stover Family Dentistry team in 2014 and we have absolutely loved having her! She enjoys getting to meeting our patient family and continuing the delivery of excellent dental care to her patients. Sarah was born and grew up right down the road in Dallas, NC where she graduated from North Gaston High School. Following her dream to be a Dental hygienist, Sarah attended Central Piedmont Community College where she graduated with her RDH degree in 2014.
Sarah is married and enjoys spending her free time with family, including her fur-baby - a Golden Retriever named Tucker. She also enjoys cooking, baking, and working out. Her passion is to make patients feel comfortable and educate them about their oral health all while making going to the dentist an enjoyable experience.
Leah was born and raised in Charlotte, NC. She graduated from Central Piedmont Community College with her degree in Hygiene in 2014 after receiving her degree in Dental Assisting in 2006. A true Carolina girl. She now resides in Mooresville with her 3 very active boys. A self-proclaimed “foodie”, her free time is often spent cooking and baking, or trying to travel and try new cuisines. Leah also loves watching some Panthers football!
Leah says she chose hygiene because “I have always been interested in teeth and I genuinely love people-getting to know them as well as helping them achieve/maintain optimum dental health.” The other benefit of her profession, according to Leah, is the ability to help those who otherwise could not afford it. Leah has traveled on several mission trips to provide dental care, as well as several local outreach opportunities.
We are thrilled to welcome Leah to our office and our dental family!
