Marlana Hunt, Office Manager

"I was born and raised here in New Hope, AL.  I have been married to my wonderful husband for 8 years and we have 3 fur babies.  We are proud to call New Hope “home.” I couldn’t be more excited to serve the people of the community I’ve always been a part of. I worked as a clinical assistant for 2 years, and I am currently working up front as the Office Manager. I enjoy helping patients understanding their treatment plans and going over financial options that will work best for them. During my free time, my husband and I enjoy kayaking, fishing, anything outdoors, taking spontaneous roadtrips, and cheering on the Tide! Roll Tide! My favorite part of dentistry is providing premiere quality service to patients, while helping to find their best smile."

I worked in my hometown of Grant for 20 years with Dr. Pete Sparks and an additional 4 years at Grant Dental Care with Dr. Kyle Parks. I am thankful and blessed to be a part of this great team, and I am enjoying meeting and getting to know new patients. I am married to Michael Stapler, a New Hope native. I have a 24 year old daughter, Sarah Baker. In my spare time, I enjoy walking, reading, and working in my flowers.”

After 8 years of clinical assisting, I was accepted into the Alabama Dental Hygiene program. I earned my Dental Hygiene License (RDH) in 2016.
