Meet our Staff

​Hello, I am Karen. I am one of Dr. Moore's dental assistants. We have worked together for the past 25 years. I absolutely love my patients and our team. I enjoy developing friendships as well as the professional relationships that I share with them. After work, I love spending time with my husband of 29 years, Mike, and our sweet son Jonathan, who recently became a teenager. My life is truly blessed!
Hello, my name is Trish. I worked for Dr. Moore from 1990 to 1992 where I gained valuable knowledge. I then obtained my dental hygiene license and went to work at another dental office. I came back to work for Dr. Moore 6 years ago where I am fortunate to be working for a great dentist and office team. After work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two wonderful sons. I am so blessed.

Anna Burrill
​Hi! I’m Anna Burrill. It’s been such a privilege to work for my dad and the Abingdon Smiles team. I’m a musician and piano teacher by training, but I have enjoyed getting to know patients and helping in various roles here at the office. Perhaps I am a bit biased, but Dr. Moore is the best dentist in world! When I'm not working, I love being at the CrossFit gym, and spending time with my sweet family
Hello, I'm Randi. A few years ago I was a hopeful student at this practice completing my shadowing hours for hygiene school; now I am ecstatic to be a dental hygienist here! I feel extremely blessed to have been given the opportunity to be a part of such a compassionate, professional, and knowledgable team. When I am not at work I enjoy barrel racing, hunting, and spending time with my family.
Hi my name is Susie Graham. My husband and I moved to Abingdon in 2018 after living in northern Indiana for about 16 years. Both of us, however, are native to western Pennsylvania. I was a high school math teacher for about 25 years before coming here so the world of dentistry is new to me. I am enjoying this new adventure and working with this amazing team! When I am not working, I love spending time with family, going for walks and reading a good book.
Hello, my name is Amy! I obtained my certificate in Dental Assisting from Wytheville Community College in 2007. Then, I went on to graduate from their Dental Hygiene program in 2009. Since joining the practice in early May, I have enjoyed working with such a wonderful and compassionate team. I am married with two sweet children. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with family, kayaking and traveling to new places.
Kristina Grizzle
Hello, my name is Kristina. I am a dental hygienist and I can say that I truly love my job! I am so thankful to be apart of Abingdon Smiles and to work close to home. After work, I enjoy spending time with my family and playing volleyball.
Hello, my name is Taylor! I graduated from Wytheville Community College in 2015 where I completed the Dental Assisting program. I have loved my experience with working in dentistry meeting new people and seeing patients smile. I am married to my husband Logan, and we have a beautiful baby girl named Saylor. In my spare time we love traveling to see new places and spending time with our friends and family.
Eric Huffman
Hello, I'm Eric. I operate my small denture lab over in the mountains. I've been making dentures with Dr. Moore for about six years now. When I'm not in the lab making teeth, I like to be out gardening, or playing my guitar, studying the Bible, or working on one of my old tractors.
