Cheron Tinnell

After moving to Fayetteville from Chester, VA and completing Dental Assisting school, Cheron joined the Sandhills family in 2019 as a Dental Assistant.

She loves being chairside with her patients and being a part of helping them to achieve the smiles that they have always wanted. Though a dental assistant, you may also find her smiling face at the front desk assisting with scheduling and treatment planning for our amazing patients.

Cheron is the proud mother of four beautiful children, Nevaeh, Nylah, Caden, and Auden. In her spare time, she loves to spread her creative wings and creates beautiful works of art made of wood, clay, and customizing tumblers.
