Meet Our Team
Amanda – Practice Administrator
I am Amanda Carlin and a South Dakota Native. I’m married to my husband John of 18 years, and we have 3 kids. John and I have raised our family in Newcastle WY, on our ranch. In 2015 we returned home to SD, our old stomping ground. With 3 children all teenagers, chasing them takes up all of my time, and there is nothing else I would rather do. My kids are active in volleyball, basketball, football, track, wrestling and High school rodeo.
My favorite thing about dentistry is serving my patient’s needs. Whether it’s dental needs, or a being a good listener and finding out what matters most to my patients. Dr. Diana is passionate about the whole being of the patient, not just the teeth! This is what I love most about being a team member at Destination Dentistry. I’m also very passionate about being involved in my community. I donate a lot of my time, to Booster Club, community fundraisers, and to those who are in need of a helping hand. I’m so blessed to be part of such a great team, and community.
Cindy – Hygienist
I grew up in Colorado Springs in a large family of ten children. I moved to Canon City, Co where I have three children and five grandchildren.
I was introduced to Dental Assisting in 1989 and work as an assistant for 18 years. I wanted to have more influence in the care and treatment of patients, so I graduated from Colorado Northwestern Hygiene school in 2008. I volunteer every year for the Colorado Mission of Mercy as the lead for the dental hygiene department. It is a clinic that serves the dental needs of about 1200 patients in two days. We get up early and work late, but the blessings and gratitude are well worth it.
My husband and I came to South Dakota to provide help and encouragement to my sister. When we met some of the people here and seen how beautiful it is in The Black Hills, we felt as though this is where we were supposed to be.
I have enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting and spending time with family and friends. I appreciate the patients that have put their trust and confidence in us to give them the best we can offer. Making new friends and becoming a part of your life keeps me excited about my profession.
