As our office manager, we rely on Kim to keep both our team and our patients organized every day, and she really does a great job! She has over 22 years of experience and is friendly, outgoing, hardworking, and dedicated to helping every patient maximize their insurance so they can achieve their dental health goals while staying on budget. A native of Livermore, CA, Kim says, “I look forward to coming to work every day because our patients and staff are such great people. I love my work family!” On most weekends, you’ll find her walking along the beach, hiking mountains, going fishing, or camping with her husband, daughters, and son.
Kaley will likely be one of the first friendly faces you see when you walk in our doors! She’s a great fit for the position because she truly enjoys meeting new people and helping them get the most out of their insurance benefits. Originally from Palatka, FL, Kaley has been in dentistry for 4 years and looks forward to working with our “fun and considerate staff” every day. Outside of dentistry, she has a passion for math, numbers, and problem solving, and she’s also an avid reader.

She has a genuine love for making people smile! Whenever she’s not busy at the office, she spends her free time hanging out with her kids and baking.
Originally from Jefferson City, Missouri, Vaniety has been working in the dental field for 9 years now. She just loves welcoming and comforting patients at Alexander Dental while assisting our doctors.
