Cearra Pollard
Office Manager

In August of 2022, Cearra Pollard became our business office manager. Cearra was born and raised in York, Pennsylvania, watching many of her family members take on careers in the dental world. From a young age, Cearra knew she wanted to venture down the same path.

During her early years of schooling, Cearra had the opportunity to attend a vocational high school, where she would learn the valuable skills needed to excel in her passion for dentistry. By age 13 Cearra began her work towards becoming a dental assistant and over the years, she became a Certified Dental Assistant and earned a Radiology certification. After years of being a dental assistant, Cearra grew to love the administrative side of dentistry.

Cearra loves being able to make a difference in patients’ lives; big or small and says that there isn’t a more satisfying feeling. Cearra’s favorite part of her job is getting to know and help new patients.

As a mom of 3 and animal lover, in her free time Cearra loves to spend quality time with her husband, children, dogs, cats, ducks and bunnies! Cearra also enjoys staying active at the gym and working with her mom to breed exotic shorthaired cats.
