Pediatric Dentist Mitzi L. Hines says every day is another day she gets to spend pursuing her passion: to provide high quality dental care to the pediatric population. “I desire most to make every child’s experience a memorable one!”
A Columbus, OH, native, Dr. Hines earned her Bachelor’s Degree and subsequently completed her dental degree at OSU. She did her pediatric dental residency at Rainbow Babies’ and Children’s Hospital and Case Medical Center, then opened her own pediatric dental practice in 2009.
Dr. Hines originally intended to become an oral surgeon specializing in cleft palate restoration, but says pediatric dentistry won her over – something about the honesty of a child’s smile tipped the balance. “Our patients continue to win me over every single day!” she says.
When she’s not creating amazing smiles for her patients in a positive, compassionate environment, Dr. Hines can be found with her family, which includes her husband, the couple’s children – a college-aged step-daughter, a preschool aged daughter, a preschool aged son – and the family’s three puppies.
Dr. Ashley Anderson moved to the Columbus area with her family while in high school. She attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio for her undergraduate education and returned to Columbus to earn her dental degree from the Ohio State University. Dr. Anderson also completed her specialty training in pediatric dentistry at Case Western Reserve University and the Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio.
In 2006, Ashley married her husband, Craig, and in August of 2012 they welcomed twins, Parker and Elliott, into their family. Dr. Anderson enjoys spending time with her family and also enjoys traveling, running, and spending time outdoors.
Andrée-Anne Pagé, DMD, MS, says that in pediatric dentistry she found the perfect career. “I absolutely love working with children, and as a dentist I now get to work with children every day and help them achieve maximum oral health!”
Originally from Montréal, Québec, Canada, Dr. Pagé moved to London, KY in 1999 and now lives in Columbus, OH. She completed dental school at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry, and her residency at University of Louisville and Kosair Children’s Hospital.
Dr. Pagé earned a degree in psychology during college, and also taught ballet for ten years. She says understanding how children’s minds work is important to helping them overcome anxiety, and enjoys helping special needs children in her practice have positive dental experiences.
When she’s not pursuing her passion for pediatric dental excellence, Dr. Pagé enjoys traveling, scuba diving, and spending time with her friends, family, and her two pets – a dog named Sundae and a cat named Grey. Dr. Pagé is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the Ohio Dental Association. She also holds Basic Life Support and Pediatric Life Support Certifications.
Dr. CaAdrian Norman says a fascination with teeth and a desire to work in the health profession meant that dentistry was a perfect fit for her. Working with children in a daycare setting while she matriculated through dental school helped cement her goal – to assist children with maintaining an excellent quality of life.
“Residency basically reassured me that pediatric dentistry was for me,” she says. “Helping a child deal with their cavity is very rewarding when you are able to shape their fear into a joyful experience!”
A Memphis, TN, native, Dr. Norman achieved her Bachelors of Science at the University of South Carolina, in Columbia, SC; earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Meharry Medical College, in Nashville, TN, and served her residency as a Pediatric Dentist at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, in Miami, FL.
“My job is to provide comprehensive pediatric dental care,” she says. “I think one of my main advantages working with children is my patience. I am willing to try whatever it takes to get the job done in a safe and reasonable manner.”
When she’s not creating and maintaining joyful little smiles, Dr. Norman can be found hanging out with friends and family, or catching up with her favorite shows on TV. She’s engaged and plans to get married soon, and says the charity she is most fond of is St. Jude’s.
