Producing Smiles
with excellent service,
quality treatment and fair fees
presented in a comfortable atmosphere,
making communication key to patient care.

You will notice we try to have our patients meet with the same Patient Manager each time you visit our office. We think it helps in the continuity of care you receive.

There are times, however, when you might not be seen by your Patient Manager. It could be we are trying to help one another, or perhaps a Patient Manager is out for that day. Nevertheless, we hope to provide you the kind of attention we would like to have by having the same Patient Manager at each visit.

Suzanne - Patient Manager

SuzanneHi, I'm Suzanne , I began working in orthodontics in 1986 for Dr. Sidney Smith. When he retired I began working for Dr. Alan Jones and now work for Dr. Murray Dickson. We have a lot of fun around here and laugh a lot! It’s a blessing to have a great time at a place of employment with co-workers who become such great friends. I have been fortunate enough to work with one of my best friends, Jo Donna, since 1987.

My husband David and I married in 1988 and have two wonderful kids, a daughter Allison and a son Jacob. We enjoy hunting, Alabama football,riding 4-wheelers and just about all things outdoors. Of course my daughter and I enjoy shopping! We love the beach and go there whenever possible.

Jill - Patient Manager

JillHi, my name is Jill. I’ve been working in the field of orthodontics since 2002. I’ve been with this practice since 2004, and enjoy my position very much. At the end of the day I have the satisfaction of knowing I’ve made a difference in someone’s smile. In 2010, I received my dental hygiene license, but have chosen to stay in orthodontics.

I live in the town of Owens Crossroads along with my husband and two children. I spend most of my spare time being a mom and wife. I enjoy fishing, good music, and almost any outdoor activity.

Tanja - Patient Manager

TanjaMy name is Tanja, I was born and raised in Bavaria, Germany. I lived there until I moved to Alabama in 2003. Moving to Alabama was a change, but a very good one. I am still getting adjusted to the culture.

I am married and have 4 kids, one boy and three girls. I also have 3 dogs, and they are my world. I would do anything for my family. Yes, they drive me crazy sometimes but that’s normal. So really my work starts, when I get home! In my free time, if there is any, I like watching TV, baking cakes, and cooking any type of food.

When I was 14 years old I went to dental school for 3 years to get a degree in dental assisting. I have been working in Orthodontics and Dentistry since then. Yes, I have been in the field for a long time and still enjoy doing it every day.

I can not wait to meet you and help you make your smile even bigger and better!

Diane - Records Coordinator

DianeHi! My name is Diane. I have been involved in orthodontics for over 25 years and have seen a lot of great smiles. It has been a pleasure to work with Dr. Dickson and the rest of our staff. His great personality and the way he interacts with our patients is great! We really have a good time here at Producing Smiles.

My job in the office starts the first time we see our patients in the office. I take all of Dr. Dickson’s diagnostic records which includes the new digital scanning system. This system allows us to get the most accurate information with no discomfort to our patients. My other responsibility is to make patient retainers when they have completed their treatment! Thats when we really see them smile!!!

When I'am not at work I really enjoy spending time with my family. My husband Jay and I have a beautiful daughter named Anna. We also have three cats and a very spoiled golden retriever named Bailey! We are members of Flint River Baptist Church and are surrounded by a great church family.

My favorite things to do usually always involves my family. We enjoy taking day trips just looking for that perfect antique for our home or just trying to find that perfect little restaurant for dinner. We always have a big garden every year and enjoy growing different types of flowers. During the summer we like to go fishing if there is not a Nascar race on television. All of us are big Alabama football fans and can't wait for the season to start. If we aren’t busy we just like hanging out we our good friends we’ve made through the years.

Now that you've met me, I can't wait to meet you!

I have been in the dental field for many years and orthodontics for 10 years. I was Dr. Dickson's first employee when he moved to Huntsville to begin his practice and I have loved every minute!

In my down time I love to travel and hang out with my friends and family. I also love to spend time with my boyfriend and our 3 "kids"(Jack-pup, Newton-kitty, and Mama-kitty).

I enjoy spending time with my co-workers. When you come in to visit our office you will see how much fun we have, how much we love our patients, and just how wonderful Dr. Dickson is!

Philip - Clinical Facilitator

PhilipMy name is Philip. I am a student at Grissom High School and college can’t come soon enough! I have two brothers (Gerrit and Tucker) who are both older. I love football. I am a die hard Green Bay Packers, but when it comes to college football my allegiance lies with Notre Dame. Any spare time I can find, I love hanging out with my friends and playing sports. I have two dogs, Annie and Maggie (both Lab mixes), and they are both spoiled rotten. I love all my co-workers, they make work enjoyable and it is so wonderful to see how they interact with their patients on such a personal level. I am so thankful to have the opportunity of working here, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me in the field of Orthodontics.
