Laura Glanton, I have been in the dental field for over 20 years. In 1990 I became an EDA certified dental assistant. Later, in 1999 I had the opportunity to work for Blue Cross Blue Shield of FL, for 8 years, in the dental department where I learned most of my dental insurance knowledge. Due to my husband’s military service, we moved frequently. I have worked in multiple dental offices as an assistant or front office staff and I feel very happy to have found a great office now to be part of. I enjoy working with patient’s insurance benefits and helping them to understand their benefits in order to maximize them for their dental needs. I am married to James Glanton, Jr., who is recently retired from the Navy. We love the Yulee/Fernandina Beach area so much that we have decided to make it home.
Georgia Dickerson/EDA certified Dental Assistant since 1999. I love helping each person achieve healthy and beautiful smiles. I provide chairside assistance to Dr Porter during dental procedures, and make sure she has everything she needs, while supporting our patient. Because we practice painless dentistry. I’m a native of Nassau county. I’m married to Robert Dickerson. I’m the mother of Cade and Gage. On my off time, I enjoy spending time with my family.

I see Dr Porter here and she is one of the best dentists I have ever been to. I always have a problem getting numb and Dr Porter was able to get me numb with a minimal number of shots and fill my cavities with no pain. If you are scared of the dentist I highly suggest coming here to see Dr Porter
Dr. Porter is a fantastic dentist. Patient, gentle, and takes time to do the work right. Didn’t even feel the novicaine needle for my filling!
Appreciate that they take the time to talk to you and explain everything, your appointment never feel rushed. Friendly and competent staff. Highly recommend! Will be switching over my children to Dr. Porter this month. William F
Dr. Porter is the best!
