| Judy Riggs – Receptionist
I’ve been working with Dr. Hobbs since 1998 and very much enjoy being the “front person” in our office. I work directly with patients to facilitate appointment scheduling and also assist with insurance processing and help with the general business of running the practice. I have been in the Dental profession since 1974. I enjoy, flower gardening, am an avid NASCAR Fan and weekend getaways with family and grandchildren. I have a large extended family with deep roots in Orange County.

I was born and raised in the Virgin Islands and have been living in North Carolina since 1997. I graduated from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia and have assisted in Oral and Periodontal Surgery since 1994. I have been working with Dr. Hobbs since moving to NC in 1997 and we have formed an excellent surgical partnership. In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering with animals at our local shelters, making jewelry and sailing.
| Elizabeth Dowd – Hygienist
North Carolina has always been my home. I am married and have an identical twin sister. I have been a dental hygienist since 1992 and have been working with Dr. Hobbs since 1997. One of my favorite pastimes is playing golf with my husband. I am also a lover of animals, especially my cat Rufus and enjoy both tennis and fishing. I also enjoy both planning and taking vacations and I’m extremely fond of nice patients !!
| Janet DeVries – Hygienist
I am married and have two teenage children. I am a graduate of UNC and have been in the field of Periodontics for 24 years. I have been working with Dr. Hobbs since she started her practice in 1997 and I’ve enjoyed being a part of her team. After all of these years, I still enjoy doing perio hygiene ! I did mention I have two teenage children, so my “spare time” is very precious. My outside interests include reading good books and going to soccer games.
