Meet Our Team
Lori M. Hylton, RDH
I was born and raised right here in Marietta,Ga. After graduating high school in 1998 I attended The University of Georgia for pre-nursing. I then transferred to Kennesaw State University to complete my BSN degree. After my first year of nursing school I was thriving academically but didn't feel completely fulfilled by this career choice. The following year I decided to change my path and worked as a dental assistant while exploring which avenue of healthcare I was going to pursue. I realized I loved working in the dental field! I decided that becoming a Dental Hygienist was the perfect fit for me and my "future" family! I attended Clayton College and State University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene degree in 2003. I love people and having a job where I can not only provide them with a valuable service for keeping their bodies healthy but also have the chance to get to know them on a long term basis is awesome! I am still a huge Bulldogs fan and spend every fall watching the games with my husband and teaching my two kids to cheer on the Dawgs! Working here at Dr. Kurtzman's office is like being home again! I look forward to many years of being part of this family and getting to know all of you!
Lindsay Aslakson, Hygienist
I was raised in neighboring Paulding County where I still live now. I am engaged to be married, and we will be traveling to the Bahamas to say "I do" in April 2016. We have a four legged child, a black lab named Beau.
A childhood hygienist of mine introduced me to the idea of a career in dental hygiene when I was in high school. After graduating high school, I started taking classes at West Central Technical College and started dental assisting at the same office that sparked my interest in the field in the first place. Three years later, I graduated from the dental hygiene program and began my career. I spent eight years working in a practice that was a high volume and fast paced environment. While it gave me great experience,
I struggled to feel fulfilled. I wanted to work in an office that stood out from the rest. That is exactly what I found in Dr. Kurtzman's office. We focus on one patient at a time providing quality care while catering to each patient's needs. This approach to dentistry is so unique and special, and I am so happy to be a part of it. I look forward to meeting each of you along the way and helping to provide you with a great visit to our office.
Allison Peterson, Front Office & Assistant
I am a true Georgia Peach and I haven’t strayed far from my hometown of Powder Springs. I joined Dr. Kurtzman’s office in August of 2014 and have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this awesome team! I met Dr. Kurtzman while I was working at a bank; I had recently gotten married and was looking for a more fulfilling career. Around that same time Dr. Kurtzman had an opening come available and it just seemed meant to be. I am new to the dental field and I feel very fortunate to work for such a great dentist who provides such high quality treatment to each and every patient who walks through our door. I look forward to many years with this team and getting to know each and every one of you along the way.
