Front Office Coordinator
Callie was born and raised an hour west of Nashville in a small town named Lyles. She attended Tennessee Technology Center in Dickson and graduated as a certified dental assistant in 2010. Callie started off as an assistant for 4 years before she learned the administrative side of dentistry. She is skilled in insurance verification, coordinating treatment plans, and scheduling. Callie enjoys multitasking and staying busy, so being in the front office always keeps her on her toes.
Callie and her husband Ricky have been married since Halloween of 2016 and currently reside in Greenbrier. They love traveling and going to concerts together. They have a cat named Crookshanks and two ferrets that occupy their time at home. Callie’s favorite part of working for Dr. Wickness has been being part of a team that truly cares for their patients and provides exceptional service
Although she was born in New Orleans, Jordan has lived all over the United States. Having lived here for 18 years, she calls Nashville home. Jordan has been practicing dentistry for 12 years and says the team at Dr. Wickness’ office is the best set of co-workers she has ever had.
As much as she enjoys her job, her family comes first. She couldn’t ask for a better partner than her husband Tad to raise their 9-month-old daughter and 4-year-old Great Dane. Jordan enjoys her church community, reading, walking, hiking, and napping.
