Latisha Goodman
Office Manager

I began working with Dr. Major in December of 1991. I had recently married my husband, Greg, and had moved to Chattanooga from Helen, Georgia. Knowing very little about dentistry, I quickly began attending all the continuing education courses I could, while also completing my college degree in business administration. I knew right away that this was going to be a career for me. Throughout the years I have loved working with such talented, compassionate professionals who are like family to me. Along with our state-of-the-art equipment, advanced training and techniques, it is our team’s passion to provide patient care and comfort that creates the atmosphere our patients enjoy. In my spare time, I enjoy the outdoors, reading, and spending time with my family.

Dental Assistant

I began working with Dr. Major as a dental assistant in May of 2018. I did my interns for school at the office and he hired me on through school. Coming into the office I saw how nice, caring, and giving the staff was, which made me want to be a part of the team. Dr. Hernandez came into the office not to long after, I then began working with him. I am lucky I get the chance to work with both dentist and they are incredible. The way they care for their patients and staff is something I have never seen or got to experience in the dental field. I am very lucky to have such great patients as well! I love getting to know my patients and always look forward to seeing them back! Outside the office, I enjoy being active, camping, hiking, and being with my family and friends.
