Amanda Coffey

Our treatment coordinator Amanda, is one of the first faces you will see when you are welcomed to Team Popp Dental! Amanda has over ten years experience in the healthcare field and has been with Team Popp since February of 2017. We are confident that you will feel excited and ready for your treatment after spending time with Amanda.


Amanda and her husband Mark both love to camp and spend time outdoors with their friends and two daughters Aly and Gracie, and fur baby, Oreo. Also in her free time, Amanda loves going to contemporary Christian concerts and being an active member of City Church.

Brandi Thornton

A native to Myrtle Beach, SC, Brandi moved to the Chattanooga area 12 years ago. With over 16 years of orthodontic experience, we knew Brandi was a perfect match for our clinical manager. Brandi is organized, outgoing, innovative, and really knows how to make someone smile. So of course, working in a profession where we are all about smiles is very fitting!


Brandi is the proud parent of Cameron, Sofia, and Kason, and wife to Desmond. They are a traveling family and love to go on cruises! When Brandi isn’t working, you can find her by the pool, enjoying Mexican food, or rooting for the South Carolina Gamecocks.

Tori Smallan

Tori has been with Team Popp for four years as a clinical assistant. Tori is very outgoing and knowledgeable which always makes for an enjoyable experience at our office! You might find it hard to not find Tori in a happy and smiling mood! Without this enthusiastic sweet soul, our office would not the be same!


Tori lives in Lafayette, GA with her husband Josh. Outside of the office, Tori likes hiking, camping, and helping with the youth group at her church! Tori and Josh are expecting their first baby this August, a sweet boy named Lane Fisher.

Jeanette Ramsey

Jeanette has over 15 years experience as a front desk receptionist in orthodontics. Fortunately, Jeanette joined Team Popp in March of 2018! Feeling like a “team” and a “family” is what we strive for and Jeanette’s smiling face makes every patient feel that way as they walk in the door. Not only is she extremely friendly, Jeanette is organized, creative, and driven which makes her a perfect business manager for our team.


Jeanette is the wife of Brian Ramsey and mother to her son, Tres. Outside of work, Jeanette stays task driven and loves to work on the inside and outside of her house, enjoys hiking, hanging with friends and family, and is a sucker for a good game night!

Leslie Cameron

As a member of Team Popp Dental Leslie assists with all the front desk duties including scheduling and insurance. She also graduated from the Red Cross Dental assistant program in March 2017 and is a registered dental assistant in Tennessee. She is married to Aaron Cameron and has two young children, Arianna and Wyatt. Leslie loves time with her family and attending her kids activities and sports. In her personal time she loves reading books and listening to music. Her willingness to help shows in all her interactions with patients and other team members! 

Emily Frizzell

Emily is one of our clinical assistants and joined Team Popp Dental over the summer of 2018. With her outdoorsy spirit, it was an easy adjustment for her to fit in with the team! Emily loves to go hiking, fishing, kayaking and has a new interest in white-water rafting after Team Popp took a trip down the Ocoee together. Emily was valedictorian of her RDA program at Miller Motte Technical College and has a great chair side manner that will make you very comfortable at your visits. It will be tough to catch Emily not smiling and thankfully it is very contagious!

Robin Hale

Robin is one of the first faces you see when you come into our office. The Chattanooga native, born and raised, resides with her husband of fifteen years along with their two young boys. Robin enjoys reading and beach trips with lots of time in the sun. She loves to laugh and have fun and seems to never meet a stranger. She can also be found at the baseball fields cheering for her two favorite baseball players, her boys.

Luchy Gallien

Luchy has been in the dental field for many years but is new to Team Popp Dental in 2018. Because of Luchy’s calm demeanor, we knew that she was the perfect fit to work with our patients. Her warm personality makes you feel like you are right at home. Easy to approach and understanding are a few qualities that patients appreciate about Luchy when visiting our office! Luchy is a mom of three boys so she knows how to handle it all and stay on her toes. Outside of the office, you will usually catch Luchy and her husband, Milton, keeping the boys busy with multiple sports or any outdoor activity. Luchy is also a health food enthusiast and has some great healthy recipes up her sleeve!
