After graduating from Coastal Carolina Community College as a certified dental assistant in 1999, I began working with Dr. Wells.  I enjoy coming to work and love the family atmosphere we have with our team and patients.  I feel blessed to be a part of creating beautiful smiles every day.  I am a native of the crystal coast and spend my time away from work with my husband Jody and our shaggy schnoodle, Ozzy.  We enjoy boating and fishing our local waters.

Dentistry is one of my passions! I love to help patients reach their goal from the first visit until completion of their excellent oral health.  I received my dental assisting degree from UNC dental school in 1975.  I am a member if the American Dental Assistants Association(ADAA) and the North Carolina Dental Assistant Association (NCDAA).  I began working with Dr. Wells in 2007 after relocating from Clinton, N.C.  I am very thankful for all my years in the dental profession.  Our team is like family and we treat our patients as family also.  I enjoy spending time with my husband, grandkids, and family. I enjoy almost any activity that involves the great outdoors and nature.  I am exceedingly blessed by the beautiful sunrises and sunsets on Bogue Sound!

Malorie Kahl - Registered Dental Hygienist 

I joined Wells Family Dentistry in 2017 and I could not have asked for a better place to begin my career as a Dental Hygienist! I graduated from Wayne Community College in 2015 with a diploma in Dental Assisting, and again in 2017 with a degree in Dental Hygiene. One of my favorite things about my job is being able to educate my patients on improving their oral health, and being able to see those improvements at each appointment. I am a Pitt County native, however I spent my summers here in Carteret County.  I have a German shorthaired pointer named Lua Caroline and in my spare time I enjoy hunting, fishing, monogramming, and spending time on the water with my family.
