Meet the Team
Susan J. Williams
Susan has managed South Mountain Dental since 2004, handling everything from scheduling patients to coordinating insurance benefits to answering questions from our patients. She believes that our patients’ needs comes first and looks forward to seeing them every day!
When not at work, Susan spends most of her time outdoors gardening, camping, or kayaking with her wife and dog. She also volunteers with local environmental groups and advocates for the underserved.
Teresa enjoys mountain biking and hiking. She especially enjoys bike touring around the older majestic houses of Hagerstown and the C&O canal. Her favorite summer adventure is tubing Antietam Creek and stopping at Potomac Creamery for ice cream afterwards.
Teresa can be seen at the front desk greeting patients. She also takes care of the behind the scenes business like paying bills, marketing and keeping up with all the legalities of running a business. Teresa is very excited to open in Boonsboro in a new accessible office and meeting new people.
EFTA Dental Assistant
Danielle has been a part of South Mountain Dental for her entire life, first as a patient and then by becoming Dr. Film’s assistant in 2005. Her EFTA (expanded functions) designation allows Dani to perform functions that other dental assistants may not.
Outside of work, Danielle likes to relax by hiking the local trails, going for a run or working out at the gym.
Shannon first came to Dr. Film’s office as a patient and then later as an extern from the Hagerstown Community College Dental Assisting program. After graduating from HCC and sitting for nation-wide Board Exams, she became a Certified Dental Assistant through The Dental Assistants National Board (DANB). She became a full-time CDA with South Mountain Dental in May 2015.
During her time away from her patients and the office, Shannon loves being outdoors- taking in all the sunshine- with her husband, family, friends, and her Pug! She also enjoys staying fit with Bang Powerhouse Dance Fitness.
Shawn graduated from Hagerstown Community College’s Dental Hygiene program, where she received the Dental Hygiene Leadership Award. She was a member of Phi Theta Kappa and remained on the Dean’s List throughout her 3 years at HCC. She is currently working towards her Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene.
Prior to receiving her hygiene degree, she worked as a dental assistant for 7 years. Shawn’s goals are to educate each patient on the importance of excellent oral hygiene and to ensure that every visit is comfortable and stress free.
In her free time, Shawn enjoys spending time with her husband and children, baking and cooking. She is excited to meet you and brighten your smile with her gentle but thorough approach.
