Meet our Smile Team



Scheduling Coordinator


Varonica joined the Smile Team in 2013, and is usually the first smile you "see" when you call our office to schedule your initial exam with Dr. Sain. She will keep you smiling after that initial visit with her humorous accounts of life "on the farm" with her husband and family. She and Brent married in 1994, and have two beautiful children, Hope and Brody. Varonica has been in the orthodontic field since 1999, after graduating from Oakland High School and obtaining her Registered Dental Assistant license at Nashville Technology Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

Varonica and her family currently reside in Milton, Tennessee. Her interests include spending time with her family, music and going to the lake. Varonica and her family attend Woodbury Road Baptist Church.

Her parents, brother and extended family still reside in Lafayette, and she visits them often. Diane and Chuck have two wonderful children, both whom attended and graduated from Smyrna High School. Their son, Geoff, is married and works in Murfreesboro, and daughter, Ashley, is married and works in Smyrna. To date, Diane has three wonderful grandchildren who keep her laughing in stitches. She is healthy and truly blessed beyond measure.

Her favorite things are reading, being with family and friends, and most of all being a 'Grams'. Spending time with her grandchildren is the greatest blessing of all!

Allie has been a wonderful addition to our practice. Although Allie joined our team in 2010, she has been with us a long time. Allie started as a patient of Dr. Sain's when she was eight. After her treatment with a palatal widening device, jaw corrector and braces, she knew God was calling her into this mission field. Allie feels blessed to know that she is helping change lives by creating great smiles.
