Meet Our Staff
Karen: Our business manager who has been here 23 years. Karen helps coordinate our financial, insurance and scheduling issues, among all the other duties of running our practice as a business. She is a Batesville native who with her husband of 31 years, has raised two girls and a boy who are now grown. She is now enjoying her seven grandchildren. Karen is known for her calm, steady demeanor and ability to empathize with others. In her spare time she enjoys books and has recently taken up an interest in outdoor grilling.
Tina: She has been a dental hygienist for 25 years. We have been lucky enough to have had her here for 23 of those years where she has become so valued by our patients. She is known for her excellent clinical expertise, gentle touch and bubbly personality. Most of our patients know her not only as their hygienist, but as their friend. Tina is happily married and has two wonderful daughters who keep her traveling all over the country in athletic competitions. Other dental professionals have commented how amazing it is to watch Tina and Dr. Chunn work together for the benefit of our patients.
Cherie: She is known for her ability to tackle a challenge without intimidation. Her application of common sense into practically any situation along with her good follow through gives her talents that are invaluable to providing quality and efficient care to our patients. She is passionate about taking care of other people. Cherie has been a part of our team for 3 years now after spending time assisting an oral surgeon. She is a wife of 9 years and mother to 3 children. From Rose Bud Arkansas, anything outdoors will suit Cherie may it be fishing, hunting, or 4-wheeling. It wouldn’t be so unusual to hear that Cherie assisted a cow giving birth before coming to work as she lives on a farm.
Erin: She is our appointment coordinator and usually the first face you will see when you arrive in our office. Her passion for creating good customer relations is why she is generally the first contact when you call our office. She spent the previous 10 years working for a third party administrator as an auditor. Erin hails from Southside and loves fishing and her Razorbacks. It’s been told that when she fishes for trout, one can hear her calling them as if she were calling for the Hogs! Otherwise she is a very laid back person who loves parenting her two daughters.
Alyssa: She is Dr. Chunn’s daughter who is currently pursuing her degree at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville as a pre-dental student. Alyssa’s focus in college has been on both biology and anthropology. While in college she has spent a tremendous amount of time volunteering her skills both as a dental assistant in Guatemala and as the director of Natural Teeth, which is a group that helps to teach school age children the value of good dental health. She has worked in the office when not studying since before she graduated from Batesville High School. As a clinical assistant, many patients have already observed and commented on how good she’s going to be. Dr. Chunn claims that Alyssa is much smarter than he ever was. (he’s just a little bit proud!)
