Patti, Office Administrator
I have been a member of our team since 1997. I will most likely be the first person you speak with and see at Red Maple Dental. I enjoy helping our patients with scheduling, reviewing financial options, and taking care of insurance matters for their dental needs. I am married to Terry and have a son Aaron, a daughter Kristin, and two Jack Russell Terriers, Shelby and Bear. I enjoy snow skiing, water skiing, traveling, riding my Harley, and spending time with my family.
Darlene, Dental Assistant
I have been with the practice since 1999 after graduating from AB Tech in 1992. I enjoy all aspects of dental assisting, from making pretty temporary crowns to seeing a patient’s smile changed with cosmetic dentistry. I am married to a wonderful husband, Michael, and have a son, Austin, who is a talented motocross racer. Our weekends stay busy cheering him on and working as his pit crew. We enjoy every minute!
Sarah, Dental Assistant
I moved from Indiana to Asheville in 2000 and began my dental assisting career in the practice in 2004. I enjoy working with the great patients in our practice and helping them achieve optimum dental health. In my free time, I enjoy the outdoors, watching movies and reading.
Stephanie, Dental Hygienist
I joined the team right after graduation from AB Tech Community College in 1992. I feel my job is vital to helping our patients maintain their exceptional dental work, and I enjoy my relationships with them. My husband, Johnny, is a firefighter for the City of Asheville. I have a son, Seth, and four dogs, a miniature Schnauzer named Jacks, English Bulldogs, Harley and Dozer, and a Rottweiler named Bo. I enjoy singing, shopping, and, most of all, spending time with my family. I’m an active member of Riverside Baptist Church and am privileged to volunteer my time working with the youth.
Ashley, Dental Hygienist
I’m the “newest” member of the team, having only been with the practice since 2009. I graduated from AB Tech Dental Hygiene school in 2000 and have been practicing in North and South Carolina ever since. I enjoy being a part of the Red Maple Dental team, getting to know patients and educating them about their dental health. My husband Jeremy and I have two children, Kamryn and Seth. In our spare time, we enjoy visiting family and friends, hiking and snow skiing.
Stephen, Office Manager
I’m happy to work behind the scenes taking care of all the small details that make your visit ideal and keep our family business running smoothly. I allow Drs. Hoffert and Miller to give their full attention to your care, which makes Red Maple Dental unique. I grew up in North Carolina, graduated with honors from the US Air Force Academy in 2001 and have a master’s degree in Business. After a 14-year active duty career flying the T-37, T-38A, B-52H, T-6A, AT-38C and F-15C in both the USAF and Louisiana Air National Guard I’ve decided, with my wife, to settle in Asheville and give life’s priority to our three children. I enjoy coaching T-ball in the North Asheville Little League, getting to know all the great outdoor activities in WNC and my monthly trip to Columbus AFB, Mississippi, where I teach the newest pilots of our US Air Force and of our allied nations the basics of military aviation.
