Christie was born and raised in Cambridge, MD and received her degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry in 2000. Christie has been the hygienist at Krause Smiles since 2004! She resides in Salisbury with her tech-savvy husband and her pampered cat, Scarlett (who may be getting a life jacket). Our patients may be surprised to know she LOVES all things Elvis and is an avid lover of boating, hence Scarlett's life jacket. She can make amazing cakes and prides herself on her love of early prevention and positive oral hygiene in even the youngest of her patients.
Amanda is usually in the back helping Dr. Mark fix teeth! When Amanda isn’t dental assisting, you’ll catch her in the gym (she never skips leg day!) or on the couch snuggled between her two puppers browsing Target’s latest and greatest deals. Amanda and Cristian have two pitty fur babies named Roxy and Cooper. Opposites definitely attract, as Roxy and Cooper couldn’t be more different, but they round out their family perfectly!
Carrie is joining our team as an Eastern Shore native with ten years of dental experience! While dentistry is truly a passion of hers, you can also find her curled up with the latest Stephen King story or binge watching the latest series on Netflix with her wife and daughter! If you see a camper in the parking lot, don’t worry—Carrie is just prepared to go on her next trip to Tom’s Cove with her family and their pups Sara and Hartley in tow (don’t forget the s’mores)! Her family is completed with two more fur babies, kitty cats named Griffin and Luna.
Autumn is a recent graduate of Salisbury University in Communication Arts and is most likely the one that greets you on the phone or when checking out or talking you through the Patient Portal. She certainly keeps this office running. Patients may find it funny that Autumn is an 80 year old in a 23 year old body! She enjoys reading, visiting thrift stores, and can tell you the name of a font just by looking at it. Did you know she used to be a patient here??? She lives just outside of Salisbury and you can often find her car parked at an angle as she was probably late arriving to work.
