Our Team

  • Joan Foschi
    Office Manager

    Hello! My name is Joan Foschi. I was born and raised in San Francisco, California and moved to Denver, North Carolina in 2014 with my husband Robert. A year later our family was complete with the birth of our darling daughter Juliet. I am continually uplifted by her spontaneity, innocence, and imagination. My daughter’s energy keeps me young at heart and constantly pushes me to be the best person I can be. I truly enjoy working with children and feel there is no more rewarding job. Children remind us all to cherish every day by learning, growing, and having fun!

    I have spent the past 20+ years working in all aspects of the dental industry. I started my career as a registered dental assistant and later transitioned to roles involving all aspects of dental treatment, financial coordination, and office management. As the team leader for Dr. Julie, I am committed to creating an office atmosphere that is both relaxing and fun. My goal is to incorporate my wealth of industry knowledge and interpersonal skills to equip our team to best serve our patients and their families, our neighbors, and our friends. I feel lucky to work with Dr. Julie, a pediatric dentist who is truly dedicated to and cares for each and every one of her patients. Having an office I feel comfortable bringing my own daughter to is just another benefit of working in such an amazing practice.

    I look forward to connecting with and getting to know each of you!

  • Halie Long
    Dental Assistant

    Hi!  My name is Halie Long. I was born and raised right here in Denver, North Carolina. I am engaged to my best friend Tate, and we currently are having a blast planning our wedding! We also are in the process of building our first home together and cannot wait to see what the future has in store for our family.

    I spent several years working as a preschool teacher, where each child left a lasting impression on my heart. In 2018 I discovered my love for dentistry and began a new journey at Lake Norman Dental Assisting School in Mooresville. I have been fortunate to find a career that brings together my newfound passion and my love of working with children at Lake Norman Pediatric Dentistry.

    I am excited and proud to be providing fun, quality care for kids in Denver and to bring more smiles to my hometown!

  • Kendra Cornwell
    Dental Assistant

    Hi, my name is Lakendra, but my coworkers call me Kendra!  I was born and raised in Hickory, N.C., and I moved to Iron Station when I was 15 years old.  I graduated from East Lincoln High School in 2012.  

    I have always enjoyed visiting the dentist since I was little girl, so I decided to become a dental assistant.  It's one of the best decisions that I've ever made!  I graduated from Lake Norman Dental Assisting school in 2016.  I absolutely love dentistry, and I love kids too, so working at LKNPD is the perfect job for me!  Kids are such a joy to work with, and their vibrant personalities always make my day better.  I love being able to build trust with my patients so they know they can always count on me, and I love showing kids that a dental visit isn't scary!  When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, dancing for my church, and doing other artsy activities.
