Alachua Family Dentistry Team


  • Rachel Morgan
    Registered Dental Hygienist
    I graduated from Santa Fe College in 2001 and have been working with Alachua Family Dentistry since the day the doors opened for business in April 2008. I used to peek in the windows to see the progress whle it was being built! I am certified to give local anesthesia and enjoy seeing my patients everyday and making them smile. I have been happily married to my husband Steve since 2001 and have 2 children named Paul 'Paulie' and Ella 'Ella-bug'. I enjoy spending time with my church, my family, reading, relaxing on the beach and Gator football.
  • Amy Barber Carpenter
    Registered Dental Hygienist
    I joined the office in 2008 as a Dental Assistant where I worked my way up to Head Dental Assistant. I returned to Santa Fe College and graduated in 2013 with an AS in Dental Hygiene and returned to the office to start the career that I love. I am certified in anesthesia as well. I love to meet all the patients and get to know them and watch their children grow. I was born and raised in Alachua, married the love of my life in June 2014 and now live in High Springs with my husband and my amazing children. We really enjoy all out door activities like hunting, fishing and of course baseball.

  • Melissa Rodriguez
    Dental Assistant
    I started my journey as a Dental Assistant in 2005. I joined the Alachua Family Dentistry team in October of 2015 as a Certified Expanded Functions Dental Assistant. I am thankful for the relationships built with the AFD Team and the confidence built while working here. I am a mother of 3 wonderful children and a wife of an amazing, hardworking husband in which the Lord has blessed me with tremendously. I was born in Citrus County and moved to Gilchrist County when I was very young, and where I still reside now. I enjoy being outdoors, hunting with family and watching my children grow and play. I give all the credit to the Lord for the life He has blessed me with and the opportunities that have come my way.
  • Kimberly Bossons
    Dental Assistant
    I started out in the medical field as a Certified Nursing Assistant over 20 years ago. I have always wanted to help people in some capacity and transitioned to Dental Assisting, which I love. I have over 12 years of experience and received my certification as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant and in Dental Radiology from the University of Florida Dental School. I joined Alachua Family Dentistry in 2012 and have learned so much here. I really enjoy working here with a great team that is the most caring bunch of people I have had the pleasure of working with. I was born and raised in Gainesville, Florida and now live in High Springs with my family. I am a long time animal lover and we have four large breed dogs, three cats, and several chickens that give us green and brown eggs. I like to try my hand at vegetable gardening with better results some years than others. I love all kinds of music and enjoy watching movies. I am also a big fan of reading and like to write poems. My daughter has even helped me self-publish 2 poetry books that are out there in Amazon land.
  • Delia Hillary
    Assistant Business Manager
    I was blessed to have been given the opportunity to work here at Alachua Family Dentistry since January 2012. Not only do I work for great doctors, but I work with a wonderful group of ladies, and call me biased, but I think we have the best patients! Each day I am excited to see who will be visiting our office and I enjoy watching the progression of our patient's treatments. Their smiling faces say it all. I am the proud Mum to 2 wonderful young men, John and Kevin. In my spare time I enjoy going to church, the movies, reading, crafting, outdoor activities, exploring places and enjoy the arts of ballet and plays. My latest obsession is painting (especially when Kim joins me at Painting With a Twist). I love animals (especially alligators) and fun little tidbit, I am a huge fan of The Walking Dead!
  • Natalie Salazar
    Registered Dental Hygienist
    I am a RDH and a dedicated wife and mom! I graduated with my Associates in Dental Hygiene from Santa Fe College in 2005, and am certified to administer local anesthesia. I have worked with Dr's Shane and Cody since 2008, taking a 3 year leave of absence while my husband, William was stationed in the NW with the U.S. Army. I was born in Birmingham, Alabama but both William and I grew up in Florida. We enjoyed living several years away in Alaska and Washington serving our country and starting our family. We have 2 amazing sons, Lincoln and Knox. In my spare time I enjoy naps, road trips, shopping (Amazon or TJ Maxx), reading, baking, swimming, and getting pedicures. After all, I do live in a house full of boys! I look forward to meeting you and making you feel at home!

In my spare time I enjoy watching the Gators play, going to the beach, watching my son play sports and spending time with family, church family and friends.
