  • Lydia Dillingham
    Hygienist

    I am a native of Weaverville, NC where I graduated from North Buncombe High School. I continued my education at Appalachian State University, graduating magna cum laude, and received my Bachelor of Science in Anthropology. I then pursued a degree in Applied Science in Dental Hygiene at Asheville Buncombe Technical College. During my time as a student, I served as the Student Dental Hygiene Association's President and received Hu-Friedy's Golden Scaler Award that recognizes students from across the nation who have 'demonstrated remarkable skill and talent over the course of their classes.' I began my career at Dr. Teague's office in 2017 and I am grateful to work with such a caring and supportive team. Fun fact - before working at Dr. Teague's office, I was a patient of the practice for the past twenty years! I am very family oriented and enjoy spending my free time exploring our beautiful mountains and immersing myself in Asheville's food culture. I recently became a new dog mom to Nelson, a redtick coonhound!

  • Shanda Manning

    I moved to Asheville in the summer of 1999. I moved here specifically to attend the A-B Tech dental assisting program hoping to find a dental practice to further my career aspirations. I am happily married to my husband, Jeremy of 12 years. We have two beautiful children, Ava, 11, and Brayden, 8. I have worked for Dr. Teague as a dental assistant since fall 2004. I am proud to be affiliated with such a successful practice and have enjoyed fulfilling my career goals as a member of his dedicated team.

  • Daina Ashworth
    Assistant

    I am a native of Asheville, NC. I graduated from Clyde A. Erwin High School in 1998. After high school, I attended Asheville Buncombe Technical College where I received my dental assisting degree in 2000. I spent my first 15 years in general dentistry where I specialized in designing in-office crowns (Cerec). In 2015, I joined a periodontal practice where I spent five years expanding my knowledge and skills in the dental field. This year, 2020, I am proud to be celebrating my 20th year in dentistry! I strive to provide patient education, quality care, and establishing relationships with our patients. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children.

  • Reese White
    Assistant

    I was born in Orlando, Florida and relocated with my family to Arden in the summer of 2015. After graduating from T.C. Roberson High School, I chose to attend Asheville Buncombe Technical College where I obtained my certification as a dental assistant. I chose to perform my clinical rounds with Teague Dentistry and realized they were the perfect fit. I officially joined Dr. Teague's team in August of 2020. I look forward to many years continuing to establish relationships with our patients. I spend my free time with my two dogs on long hikes in our beautiful mountains.

It has been a joy to work with my colleagues here at Teague Dentistry and I have made many lasting connections with patients. Outside of the office, I try to spend as much time outdoors as possible. I am also a mom to two fur babies, Klein and Koda.
