Front Desk Team


I am in awe of my profession and the technology that continues to change! As your Patient Facilitator, I love working with you, your financial comfort zone and your insurance to develop the details of your plan to help you achieve your goals, be healthy and LOVE your smile. No two patients are ever the same so every day has a new reward! Outside of the office I enjoy spending time on any body of water, fishing, scalloping, boating and spending time with my family!


I have been in the dental field since 2011 after receiving my Extended Dental Assisting degree from Everest University. I have been with Dr. Richard Caven since 2012 as your main contact point, scheduling coordinator and “the person that makes it happen!” I love my role in helping our patients achieve their best smiles. Outside of dentistry I love traveling, spending time with family and enjoying Jacksonville’s beautiful outdoors.


I was born and raised in Madison, WI and moved to Jacksonville, FL in 2012 where I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Administration. I have worked in many areas within the healthcare administration field and have over 10 years of experience in the health and beauty arena. I recently joined our team in 2018 as a key player in your overall experience.

Dental Hygienist


I am proud and fortunate to be a part of an awesome team with Caven Dental Group. I appreciate all of our patients and want to make them happy that they chose to be a part of our dental family. I take pride in my career as a Dental Hygienist and strive to treat and care for each patient individually, according to their specific dental needs, through preventive and therapeutic treatment as well as patient education. I served in the U.S. Navy for almost 10 years, and soon after received my A.A.S. in Dental Hygiene from Florida State College at Jacksonville. I have always been passionate about learning, completing many hours of continuing education, including certification in administration of local anesthesia, and currently I am completing my bachelor’s degree. Outside of the office I enjoy many RV adventures with my family. We enjoy hiking and exploring areas we have never been to, photographing our encounters with nature along the way.


Hi! My name is Laura. I have a 31 year career in the dental profession. I’ve been a Registered Dental Hygienist for 22 years focusing on oral health education and maintaining healthy smiles. I’m a Fernandina Beach native, fitness enthusiast and an avid flosser.


I am a Jacksonville native and graduated from FSCJ’s Dental Hygiene program in 2013. I love helping my patients improve their oral hygiene and seeing what a difference it makes in their lives. When I’m not at work I enjoy being involved in my church, doing Pilates, and sipping chai tea lattes.

Dental Assistants


My name is Lindsey and I have been an assistant for 10 years. I am dedicated to our patients’ oral health education and their overall comfort while they are in the chair. Outside of the office, I enjoy running, cycling and spending time with my two children.


Hello, my name is Ashley. I have been Dr. Carpenter’s dental assistant since 2010. I’ve been fortunate to work with a great doctor and all of our great patients and I’m so excited to now be part of the Caven Dental Group family. I’m passionate about dental care and strive to learn everyday how I can improve on helping our patients. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son.
