Meet Your Caring Dental Staff

Our team has been together for over 10 years, with most starting here when we opened in 2004. That way you always see a familiar face on your return visits!


Lydia Coker

Lydia Coker has been a dental hygienist for over 10 years. She loves coming to work every day because she feels we are all family. She has been married to a wonderful man, Sam, for 10 years. They are the parents of an amazing, spunky 4 year old, Tempe, who was adopted from birth. They hope to expand to their family through the miracle of adoption.

Fun Fact: She makes homemade soaps, lotions and lip balms.


Geu Pote

Geu Pote has been assisting for over 20 years and has been with Dr. Johnson since 2004. She has been married for 11 years and has 2 children, Paxton and Ardyn. She has a very close extended family with many nieces and nephews that she considers her own.

Fun Fact: Candice was a scholarship volleyball player at Southern Wesleyan University.


Marsha Robinson

Marsha Robinson has been with our team since 2006 with the exception of a slight detour working for the federal government... (Enough said) before she returned home to her second family in 2015. Although she birthed 2 daughters and is the proud grand mother of five, she would say that her youngest child is a Bischon Frise named Chole.

Fun fact: She was raised on a farm.

Lindy Treglia

Lindy Treglia has spent 30 years as a hygienist, either teaching or in private practices in Iowa, NC or SC. She has been with Dr Johnson for over 20 of those years and feels like this staff is her second family. However, her "first" family is amazing...husband Ed, and kids, Drew (26), Emmie (24) and Wes (20).
