Lauren Savino - Office Manager

Florida girl at heart, moved to North Carolina in 2011. I have been working in dentistry since 2005. I quickly became passionate about helping patients and seeing them smile. When not at work, I am with my 2 boys, Alex and Max. We love to explore NC and all it has to offer from the beaches to the mountains and everything in between!




Kristen Johnson - Dental Hygienist

I'm from Chapel Hill and a huge Carolina fan, go Heels!  I'm so excited to be part of the wonderful team at McDuffie Dentistry.  I love brightening my patients smile and getting to know each of them.  When I'm not working I love to spend time with my husband and our dog!




Alison Schempp - Dental Hygienist

I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I have a passion for systemic health and wellbeing. When it comes to caring for my patients I take a whole body, whole health approach. When not hard at work, I am enjoying life to its fullest. I enjoy spending time with my six year old son, Leland, and attending his soccergames. I love all things outdoors and can be found backpacking all around the country and kayaking anywhere there is water on my time off.


Maria Alabat - Dental Assistant

I'm native from the Phillippines, married to my wonderful husband NICO and we have a sweet 2 year old daughter named Zoe Heart. I started working as a dental assistant in 2005 and this past year joined McDuffie Dentistry. My duties are to assist the dentist(s) and make the patients feel comfortable. My favorite part of my job is when the patients come in and leave the office with a big smile on their face saying “Thank you for making me at ease!" It's truly great feeling and makes my day! I love working with doctors because I'm learning while I'm working at the same time! When I'm not at work I mostly spend quality time with family and friends.


Amanda Horton - Scheduling Coordinator
