Originally from Northwest Arkansas, I married my husband Marc in 2005 and moved to Georgia! Shortly after, I started college at Central Georgia Tech for Dental Hygiene and graduated in 2009. I have practiced as a registered dental hygienist for 9 years, 4 of which have been at Palmetto Family Dental. I can truly say that once I found a place with Dr. Brunson and crew I found my home. I am thankful to be part of a practice where patients are treated as people, not just teeth.

Over the past couple of years, I have developed a love of fitness. I have enjoyed completing several obstacle courses and recently finished my second half marathon. I also have a deep love for my sweet springer spaniel Charlie who always brings a smile to my face, even on the toughest of days.

Family is where my heart is, and in 2013 it was such a job when my parents moved to Georgie from Arkansas for retirement. I also have a son, Trent, who is 24. I feel so blessed to have a such a strong supporting family at home and at work!

My name is Amiee Harrell Landers I am a Registered Dental Hygienist and have been practicing for six years. I am originally from Thomaston, GA but moved to Pike in 2011 with my husband Will. I do not have any children right now but I do have some fur babies, five dogs to be exact.

I have been working for Dr. Brunson since graduating dental hygiene school. I graduated Columbus Technical College in 2012 with my associate’s degree in dental hygiene. In 2013 I decided to further my degree at Clayton State University and I graduated a year later with my bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. After graduating CSU I was offered and obtained a part time position as a clinical instructor for the dental hygiene program at CSU. I am currently working at Palmetto Family Dental’s Pike office more but I do fill in at CSU when I am needed.

When I am not working I do like to indulge in several hobbies and activities. On a weekly basis I enjoy going to the gym and taking classes such as Spin, Pilates, and Yoga. I love going hiking, kayaking, and camping when I can. Music and art are like therapy to me so I enjoy listening to music, dancing, writing, and drawing.
