She loves the feeling of warmth and welcoming that emanates from Dr. Devlin’s office, and she and her colleagues enjoy treating patients just like family.

Sarah, Registered Dental Hygienist
Sarah received her Associate's degree from Alleghany College of Maryland and has been with our practice for 14 years. She is dedicated to keeping her patients' teeth healthy and smiling. Sarah is good at helping anxious patients overcome their fears and enjoys seeing them smile when their treatment is completed. She is glad to work with friends, not just co-workers, who are always willing to help out. Sarah and her husband, David, have five children. Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her kids, reading, gardening, and church activities. Someday Sarah and her husband would love to visit their family in Puerto Rico.
Annie, Certified Dental Assistant
Annie has been Dr. Devlin’s chairside assistant for 27 years. She always puts her patients and their needs first and considers it a pleasure to serve alongside Dr. Devlin. Her relationship with her other team members is one of dedication; she’s always willing to help out where needed. Annie finds joy in playing the guitar and singing with the residents. Her hope is that the Lord would richly bless our dental practice as we serve others.
Wendy, Business Assistant
Dr. Devlin’s wife, Wendy, has been with the practice from the beginning. Every morning, she brings a smile to work, and if you come on the right day, donuts too! When Dr. Devlin is assisting his patients, Wendy is there for any questions or advice the staff may have. When she’s not in the office, she loves to travel to visit their three daughters, sons-in-law and 10 grandchildren, who all live out-of-state.

Alice has been married to her husband, Tom, for 47 years, and they have three children and five grandchildren. In her spare time she enjoys going camping with her family, photography, and is very active with her church and church family.
Charlotte, Business Assistant
Charlotte has been with our practice for 29 years. She's now enjoying semi-retirement life, but she’s always willing to fill in when a fellow co-worker takes a day off. Charlotte helps our team by checking patients out, scheduling appointments, and answering phones. She feels blessed to work with such a kind and understanding doctor and dental team. Charlotte loves gardening, and studying God’s Word. She enjoys spending time with her two children, their spouses, and her nine precious grandchildren.
