Dr. Hemby & Dr. Williams

Catherine Smutko

Administrative Assistant

I have been a patient of Dr. Hemby’s my entire life and now I am on the other side of the desk as his Administrative Assistant. I am so blessed to be able to work with such wonderful people in my hometown. I was born and raised in Southport and I graduated from UNC-Wilmington in 2011 where I earned a degree in Business Administration with a focus in Marketing.

I am married to my wonderful husband of 2½ years, Matthew Smutko. We have a precious daughter, Lilly Grace who is a year old, is my greatest accomplishment.

In my free time I like to perform at my parent’s theatre, the Amuzu in Southport and spend time with my family and friends.

I enjoy working with the public and am very excited to be learning more about the dental world and expanding my knowledge in this field.

Brooke Smith

Dental Assistant

I have lived in this beautiful area my entire life. I went to Cape Fear Community College and became a Dental Assistant. I have been working for Dr. Hemby for almost two years and love our practice. I enjoy dentistry and it’s nice to be part of a team that truly cares about their patients, makes them feel comfortable and well taken care of.

I am newly married and when I am not working, my husband and I enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities.

Kristie Watts

Dental Assistant

I have lived in Southport all of my life and love the charm and quaintness of our beautiful little town. I have been a Dental Assistant for Dr. Hemby for 28 years. The best part of my job is getting to know my patients. I strive to provide the very best care possible for my patients and making them feel like they are part of our Southport Dental family.

I have been married to my wonderful husband David for 22 years. In my spare time I love to spend it with family and friends. I enjoy reading and doing a variety of outdoors activities.

Lindsay Graham

Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in the small town of Clinton, NC. I graduated from Fayetteville Tech in 2010 where I earned my AAS in Dental Hygiene and practiced there for the next 5 years. My husband John and I relocated to Oak Island in November of 2015.

I love working for a practice that treats patients the way I want to be treated, by listening and making them feel like they are part of our dental family.

In our spare time we enjoy meeting new people and hanging out on the beach. Our five dogs love the beach as much as we do. We love our four-legged children, a Golden Retriever, Beaugart and our mixed breeds, Lila, Nollie, Dalebert and Opie!

Mary Wright

Office Manager

I have been in dentistry for 33 years. I started as a Dental Assistant and added the duties of scheduling, receptionist, billing and insurance. I am now the Office Manager and over the years I have worn many hats. In addition to my main duties, you can find me doing most anything that is needed, from ordering supplies to keeping our computers on-line and up to date.

I enjoy helping patients in all areas and my goal is to have them leave feeling cared for and happy with their overall dental experience with our practice.

I have been married to my wonderful husband Mike for 23 years and have two sons, Clay and Braeden and a wonderful daughter-in-law, Stephanie. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

Wendy Lawson

Dental Hygienist

I have been in Dentistry for 24 years. I started as a receptionist, and then became a certified Dental Assistant. The more I learned about Dentistry the more I knew I wanted to be a Dental Hygienist. I earned a degree in Dental Hygiene in 2003 from Central Piedmont in Charlotte, NC.

Outside of work I enjoy reading, the outdoors and spending time with my fur babies, Cinna and Bentley and I am active in my church, Unite.

It has always been a dream of mine to live at the beach so I moved to Southport in August of 2015 and I have loved every minute of it! I am excited to be part of a practice that provides their patients with exceptional dental care and treats them like family.

Kelley Sellers

Advertising/Community Relations Manager

I am an Army brat that was born in Monterey, California and moved every two years of my life until my father retired in 1977 to our wonderful community of Southport.

I graduated from the University of Wilmington with a BA in Speech Communication with an emphasis in Public Relations. I have worked in Marketing, Advertising and Customer Service my entire career and love it! Although I have been a patient of Dr. Hemby for over 30 years, I recently came on board as his Marketing Manager. It’s been fun to give the practice a new brand and roll out a new marketing campaign to increase awareness and business. This practice truly cares about its patients, listens to their concerns and needs and makes them feel like a member of the family.

In my spare time I like to spend time with family and friends, my adorable cat Dizzy, go to the beach, and listen to live music. My favorite hobby is shooting pool and I am the captain of an all girls’ team on the Southport/Oak Island Pool League.
