Meet the team at ProGrin Dental of Woodruff, South Carolina. We’re a quirky, classy, and fun bunch (or at least we like to think we are… you can be the judge) made up of several dental professionals: dentists, hygienists, assistants, and a dog. Yes, a dog. The BEST and ONLY Certified Office Therapy Dog in Upstate Woodruff!
Hello, we’re the Woodruff dental team of ProGrin
Dr. Kaley Peek: Your Woodruff, SC dentist
A graduate of the Medical College of Georgia, School of Dentistry.
She has volunteered dental care in Honduras and the United States.
Also, Dr. Peek is a member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the South Carolina Dental Association, the Piedmont District Dental Society, and the Greenville County Dental Society.
Dr. Eric Rackley: Your Woodruff, SC dentist
Dr. Rackley graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine and has been practicing dentistry for more than 33 years.
He proudly joined the ProGrin Family in June of 2018.
A fun fact about Dr. Rackley: He has a black belt in karate – but don’t worry, he won’t use his karate on you.
Gena Varner, Hygienist
Gena is originally from the Enoree, Woodruff area. She is proud to call Enoree her home and has many friends and family that come through the office… when we say many, we mean MANY. If Gena ever left and took her following away from ProGrin, we would be out of business! She is well-known and well-loved! She is a delightful, hilarious team member and a friend to all. Gena has two wonderful daughters with her husband Nick and loves spending time with her family when she is not working at ProGrin.
Aisha Hollis, Dental Assistant
Aisha is a new team member. She is a graduate of Ramirez College of Puerto Rico. She is also our Spanish translator. She has worked in different areas of dentistry as well as special needs, adults, and children. She enjoys spending time with her family. Her son is a Semi-pro Boxer and she is his biggest fan.
Amanda loves being a dental hygienist and has worked in dentistry for over 18 years. She grew up in Kings Mountain, NC, but has called Enoree her home for the last 3 years. Amanda is married and has 3 children. She loves our community and the perks that come with living in a small town. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, but her heart and soul is serving in the ministry with her husband.
Taylor Perkins, Hygienist
Taylor was born and raised in Woodruff. She is married to her high school sweetheart, Ryan. She enjoys spending time with her family and cutting up with her coworkers at ProGrin. Even though she’s a true southern belle, she hates sweet tea. A fun fact about Taylor is that she is also a certified teacher.
Julie Sorenson-Davis, Business Administrator
Day-to-day, you’ll find Julie tending to daily office operations and assisting where needed. Julie graduated from Piedmont Technical College with a degree in Business Administration. She enjoys spending time at the lake with her husband and three sons, watching her sons play football, and Interior Design. She has two fur babies, Emma Grace, 8-year-old Goldendoodle and Bella, 2-year-old Papillon.
Andrea Stewart, Dental Assistant
Andrea is a 6 year Veteran of the United States Air Force. She grew up in Hempstead, New York and moved to South Carolina in 1999. She is happily married to her husband, Ahmon, and they have two kids together, Kristopher and KeAjia. She really enjoys being a dental assistant because she loves to see her patients happy with their end results. In her spare time, she loves to travel and eat spicy foods.
Bonnie Mitchell, Dental Assistant
Bonnie is a Woodruff native. She makes some of the best food in town and is constantly eager to share her recipes with her ProGrin family. She is the second longest-standing member of the ProGrin team, and the Ayers’ family have loved every minute of working with her.
Catherine Haynes, Business Administrator
Catherine graduated from Clemson University in 2017 where she majored in Recreational Therapy. Outside of the office, she enjoys working out, spending time with her nephews, and doing anything outside. Chick-Fil-A diet lemonade and Starbucks are her favorite. She is a sucker for anything sweet and is getting married in December 2019.
