Dental Hygienists


Tonya - Dental Hygienist

Tonya     I am a licensed Dental Hygienist and graduated from the Dental Hygiene program in Godfrey, Illinois, in December 2008. College Avenue Dental is my first Dental Hygiene position since graduation. I feel very fortunate to have found a warm, caring, and knowledgeable practice to begin my career. The team here at College Avenue Dental strives to deliver high quality oral care while treating all patients like family. I find my job very rewarding and look forward to the many years to grow and learn as a part of this team.

    I am blessed to have three wonderful boys and currently living in White Hall. I enjoy shopping, traveling, and being with family and friends.


Sammantha - Dental Hygienist

sam    My dental career journey started in 2006. I became a certified dental assistant through Excel Trading Systems. My first position was as a periodontal clinical assistant. While working as a dental assistant, I graduated with my first associate's degree in science from Lincoln Land Community College. I decided to further my education and become a dental hygienist. I graduated from the Dental Hygiene program in Carterville, Illinois in December 2012. I started working part time until I was blessed to find a full time dental hygiene position with Dr. Lawson. I feel very fortunate to be part of such a skillful, pleasant and hardworking team. My goal is to treat every patient with the utmost care, precision and with a smile.

I currently live in Loami with my husband and my adorable son. I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my little boy, I am so grateful to be his mother and watching him grow is a gift.

Kris - Office Manager

krisFrom my first day of kindergarten to today, I grew up with a Dental Office Manager for a mother, so I am no stranger to the Dental field. I highly doubt she knew that teaching me the dental ropes early on would help me out today!! I was previously employed to Orthodontists in Springfield for 19 years before I came to join Dr. Lawson and his wonderful staff in October of 2013.  I truly enjoy getting to know the patients, seeing the younger ones grow through the years, and the feeling of satisfaction when you are able to go above and beyond to help the people.

Originally from Virginia Illinois, I moved to Jacksonville with my daughter Paige. I enjoy do-it yourself projects, festivals and concerts of all kinds, but most of all supporting my daughter in an array of countless activities. 




Mary Anne- Dr. Lawson's Wife

mary anneI currently enjoy working part-time helping the staff at the front desk. Dr. Lawson and I have two grown children. My daughter is a Nurse in Plano, Texas  and my son works at Fastechnology in Glen Carbon, Illinois.

I have been present in my husband's practice for many years and I am very proud of him and the care he provides for his patients. He and his staff are all part of the most wonderful, caring team of dental professions.

In our free time we enjoy spending time together traveling, going to the movies, and events in our hometown of Jacksonville, Illinois. We also enjoy being involved in activities at Salem Lutheran Church and School.
