Sally has been with Tryon Family Dentistry since it was a gleam in Dr. Haydt’s and Dr. Mann’s eyes. Sally has an extensive background in customer service with 16 years of retail experience. She was seeking a way out of working holidays, nights and weekends so she reached out to a team member whose husband works as an associate dentist at Dr. Mann’s actual office. After meeting Dr. Mann and his team she fell in love with dental insurance, dental terminology and became obsessed with her smile. After a year of volunteering, and a year of working part time at Dr. Mann’s office, she learned the ropes of dentistry to help lead the new practice of Tryon Family Dentistry. She enjoys getting to know all the current patients, and is looking forward to meeting the potential patients soon!
A native of the “Show Me” state, Missouri, Sally grew up playing tons of basketball and found a strong love for drawing. She is a graduate of McKendree University in Illinois, this is where she played basketball and received a Bachelor of Arts Degree. She became a transplant here in 1999 where she has taken full advantage of getting to know North Carolina better, from the hill top of Grandfather Mountain to the sand at Carolina Beach. She can tell you her favorite place to shop for shoes, as well as how to start the chant, “TAR”....”HEELS”, to cheer on Roy and his boys. Sally thoroughly enjoys finding new places to eat, (especially since she does not cook). She appreciates meeting and mingling with new people, so if you are ever in the office or out and about, make sure you stop and take a minute to say hello!
