Haygood Road Dental Team


As a Virginia Beach native, I always knew I wanted to serve my community. After graduating from Kellam High School, I attended Old Dominion University where I received my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene with honors in 2010. Since then I have worked full time in private practice doing what I love best; creating relationships with the great people of Tidewater and helping them achieve beautiful and healthy smiles. I am so proud to be part of a profession that can improve self-confidence and overall quality of life!

When I am not with my Coastal Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry family, and I am usually at home with my husband and fur children. My husband Tavish serves our community as a Virginia Beach Firefighter and we have two dogs; Buffy and Max. We like to spend our weekends whenever we can up in the mountains of West Virginia for rest and relaxation so we can continue our commitment to the professions we love.


Cassandra was born in Beaufort, SC but lived in San Diego, CA between 2016- 2019 before coming to Virginia Beach with her wife, Darby. Cassandra has a 3 year old adopted pit bull pup named Lilly and loves to spend her extra time doing CrossFit, traveling, and being with her family. She has been in the dental field for 11 years and enjoys working with patients and the lifelong learning that dentistry offers her as a career.


Nicole manages the front desk at our Virginia Beach dental office. As a military dependent, she attended The Academy of Dental Technology and graduated in 2005. In addition to her dental knowledge, Nicole brings a high level of organization and customer service skills to our practice. She keeps the office running smoothly and ensures that our patients are comfortable and well cared for. Nicole’s passion for dentistry is driven by her love of all people. She is motivated by the opportunity to change people’s lives through dental care.

I am here for any questions or concerns you may have. I will help maximize your dental insurance benefits and find the right financial arrangements fit for you. My mission is to be a part of a quality dental group to care for our community.

Nicole is a Virginia Beach native. She enjoys going to the beach, traveling and spending time with family and friends.


I am originally from Northern Virginia but relocated from Atlanta to Virginia Beach in 2018. From a young age, I knew that my calling was to be involved in the dental field. I attended Georgia State University from 2005-2007 and soon after decided to pursue Dental Assisting. In 2008, I obtained my EFDA (expanded functions dental assistant) Certificate, with honors, from Everest Institute in Atlanta. I worked as a surgical dental assistant for 7 years before deciding to transition into an administrative role within the practice. My passion for continuing education and making a positive impact in patient’s lives has only grown since joining the rock-star dental team here at Coastal Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry.

I fell in love with Virginia Beach as a child and feel very blessed to be able to raise my two boys, Braeden and Pierson here! We enjoy spending as much time as we can on the water, fishing, and playing with our dog, Charley. Other passions of mine include
yoga, cooking, volunteering, and traveling.


Lauren is a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH). She graduated from Old Dominion University with a Bachelors Degree in Science (BSDH) in 2011 with honors. She has a passion for bringing positive change to the dental field in ways that benefit both practice and patient. As a professional, she feels her calling is to serve people and develop lasting relationships by promoting health and wellness through the provision of communication and dental hygiene. Lauren fully embraces Coastal Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry’s philosophy of dental wellness through disease prevention and is a valued member of our team.

Lauren is an advocate of giving back to the community and routinely seeks out opportunities to give back with the entire team at Coastal Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry. Although she has such a passion for dental hygiene, Lauren is currently serving as our Chief Communications Officer. She absolutely loves helping stay on top of the latest technology and trends which adds to great internal office communication.

When Lauren is not at the office she enjoys spending time with her husband, Dr. Sinclair, and their newborn son Ryder. Being a native of Virginia Beach, she can often be found hanging out the beach or taking any number of different fitness classes.


I was born and raised in the Kempsville area of Virginia Beach, where I currently still reside with my family. I earned my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene degree from Old Dominion University in 2003 and my Masters of Science in Dental Hygiene in 2004. I enjoy the personal day to day interaction with patients in the private practice setting and strive to provide unique and personal service to each patient. Life-long learning is something I proudly believe in and am committed to sharing my knowledge through quality patient care and education, especially in implant care and maintenance. My clinical and communications experience has now transferred into an administrative role which allows me the opportunity to be a liaison for patients and our team. I love helping others achieve their goals!

In my free time I enjoy spending family time with my husband Chuck and our children, Trent, Mallory and Cassidy. When we aren’t playing outside or participating in local recreational sports, you can find us serving up snacks at local events in Hampton Roads with our concessionary business, “Keep It Poppin Kettle Corn.”
