Meet Our Staff

dental hygienist kelly


Hi, I’m Kelly! I am a dental hygienist at our Olathe office, which means I’m lucky enough to get to spend lots of time with our patients. I love to hear about their life, families and about what they’ve been up to. It is important for me to put each person at ease and to make them feel at home!

My husband, Brett, and I have two amazing and fun kids, Evan and Ashley! I really enjoy spending time with my family and going ton trips. I also love going out to eat. Funny story: I’m pretty sure I once ate my weight at The Olive Garden.


I’m Nicole, and I have been an assistant for Dr. Waters & Dr. Davidson’s office for many, many years. I have enjoyed watching our little patients grow and even now getting married.

Outside of the office I’m usually cheering on one of my boys at one of their many sports or cheering on one of our local sports teams! I find the importance of customized sports guards and love making them in many colors!


Hello there! I’m Cookie, a registered dental hygienist. I love getting to know our patients and being a part of the Olathe community. I teach our patients how to keep their smile looking great. I love to have a good laugh and really enjoy my time here. I’ve made many great friends at our practice. I enjoy having the opportunity of helping each new patient feel at ease and comfortable with their dental needs.

When I’m not in the office, I love to garden and spend time with my husband, kids and grandkids. During the fall time, I often lose my voice from yelling really loud at my tv…GO JAYHAWKS!


Hello, my name is Denise, and I am a dental assistant here at our office. I love helping my patients have the best experience possible. I love to see them leave with a big smile on their face. It feels great working with experts and to know that our dentists really have the patients best interest in mind.

My husband Tony and I love to go biking. In fact, we’ve recently took a biking trip all the way across Kansas! We also enjoy spending time and having fun with our kiddos – Hannah, Hunter and Brittany


I started to work for Dr. Waters in 1979. The practice has grown and there have been many changes. That can be exciting and challenging. But one thing remains the same. The commitment to great dental care in a loving caring environment.

My job includes coordinating treatment, insurance and financial options to help our patients reach their goals.

I love to cook and try new recipes on the other employees. Ask them about that challenge!

Hello, and welcome to our dental practice! I’m Shannon, the official practice administrator. As Dr. Waters’s daughter, I like to know dad is up to, so I get to have my hands in nearly every aspect of our office! We treat our patients like family because they are extremely special to us.

When I’m not working, I’m spending time with my husband, Jonathan. We’re newlyweds and love to spend every second together. I am also an art therapist at a non-profit counseling and education agency in Independence, Missouri.


Hello, there! I’m Jani, the doctor patient coordinator. I’m usually the first person our patients see when coming in the office. I love welcoming people with a big smile and calling them by name! My favorite part of my job is seeing each patient light up when they see our doctors and staff, because they know they’ll be well cared for here! We also love to have fun in our office. At Christmas time, we have a gingerbread house contest to see who builds the best house, and we let our patients vote for their favorite!

I am one of the biggest KU basketball fans you’ll ever meet! My dad played for KU, and both my husband and I love attending KU basketball parties.


Hi my name is Aubrey. I enjoy assisting our patients with their treatment and insurance benefits. Working with Doctors Waters and Davidson is a lot of fun.

My husband and I love to watch our boys play soccer and cheer them on. During my quiet time (which is hard to come by these days) I love to loose myself in a good book.


Hello there, my name is Tasha and I am a dental assistant here at our office. What I love about my job is showing people what a positive experience coming to the dentist can be and that it doesn’t have to be stressful.

Outside of the office I love to stay busy with my husband and our three great kiddos. To relax, I love to read a great book. And, I really enjoy grabbing a coloring book and markers. Yep, that’s right… I love to color!!!


Hello! I’m Sarah, one of the newer faces in our office. As a dental hygienist, I enjoy being part of a team that helps patients of all ages achieve and maintain their optimal dental health. It is especially rewarding for me to teach children new skills while making them feel comfortable. While I take your dental care seriously, I also try to make your visit a fun and relaxing experience.

I am marrying my best friend, Jake, in April of 2016. Jake is a firefighter in Olathe. One of our favorite activities is going to the gym. Although Jake surpasses me in weight lifting, I can out run him any day! We also enjoy being involved with our community, church, and events sponsored by the fire department.
