We believe in providing state of the art, relationship based, comprehensive care that is tailored to fit the individual needs, lives and budgets of our patients. Supporting our talented dental team is my priority as they are committed to maintaining a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience for all our patients.

Judy Alden – Registered Dental Hygienist

While serving in the Navy I was given the opportunity to volunteer as a dental assistant at a Naval clinic in Japan. The experience was so rewarding that I decided to pursue a career as a dental hygienist and later graduated with honors from Old Dominion University. The most rewarding part of my work is educating patients in order to help them attain optimal oral health. When I’m not assisting patients, I’m enjoying a variety of activities with my husband and son and look for opportunities to hike in the beautiful state of Virginia!

Jennifer Louk – Registered Dental Hygienist

In 2006 I began my career in dentistry as a dental assistant. I found the work so rewarding I decided to further my education in order to specialize in dental hygiene. After completing the required classes in 2009 I was accepted by Northern Virginia Community College and graduated in 2011. I look forward to assisting our patients and when I’m not working my husband and I enjoy life on our farm and spending time with our sons and grandsons at the beach or camping in the mountains.


Kody Watkins – Dental Assistant

After graduation from James Madison University (Go Dukes!) in 2013, I started my career in the dental field. I joined the team at Advantage Dental in 2019 and couldn’t be happier. Our team is dedicated, easy to work with and we all love assisting patients. I plan on continuing my education in dentistry with studies in dental hygiene. My free time is all about my son and our dog – we enjoy a variety of activities together and spend most of our time outdoors.
