Meet Our Team

You – The Patient

The most important person on our dental office team is YOU, the patient! From the moment our patients enter A World of Smiles, whether big or small, their trip through the practice will be a unique but fantastic dental voyage. We routinely delight our patients by transforming their preconceived negative expectations about dental care into a positive experience in which you receive empathy, respect, appreciation, as well as excellence and quality in a professional atmosphere.

Felicia1Felicia Reed – Executive Assistant

Felicia Reed joined the A World of Smiles team in September 2012 as the Executive Assistant. She has over 19 years of experience. Felicia wears many hats in our office. Usually she is the first person you'll meet at the practice. She makes patients feel welcome and relaxed before they see the rest of the dental team. While much of her work is done behind the scenes, she is eager to help make each person feel valued and appreciated. Felicia is also able to help our patients maximize their insurance benefits to achieve optimal oral health. She has been an active member of the American Association of Dental Office Managers (AADOM) for years. Felicia is committed to ensuring the team is trained and ready to provide the best possible care to each patient, and that A World of Smiles Pediatric and Family Dentistry strives to continuously improve so that we may continue to provide top notch, innovative care to each patient.

Felicia and her husband, Jerome Sr., have two daughters and one son. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, traveling to see her daughters at their colleges (one attends Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana and the other Beacon College in Leesburg, Florida), staying active in the local community, reading, baking, going to her son’s games, and shopping.

Outside of the practice, Tyieka keeps very busy with her one and only spoiled and loving son. Together, she and her son enjoy spending time at the park, bowling, skating, playing laser tag, crafting, dancing, and going on family trips! She loves spending time with her family and friends!
