Meet the Periodontal Staff

Melissa - Periodontist Staff Westminster MD


Office Manager

I have lived in Georgia for the past 20 years, recently returning to Carroll County to be closer to my family. I obtained my Certified Dental Assistance Certificate (CDA) at the Medix School in 2003 and had been a dental assistant in a general dentist practice for the past ten years. I enjoy spending time with my family and have been volunteering with foster children for the past four years.

I was born and raised in Carroll County and earned my CDA from Medix School in 1987. I have been in the dental field for 28 years and have been assisting in Periodontics for the last 24 years, I also assist in a general dental family practice as well. I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children as well as reading, and the beach.

Aaron - Periodontist Staff Westminster MD

Aaron Wike, CDA

Dental Assistant

I joined Carroll Periodontics and Implant Dentistry in 2020 as a dental assistant. Prior to Carroll Periodontics and Implant Dentistry, I was a practicing Dental Assistant for 8 years in general dentistry and some specialty work. I received my dental assisting license from the Maryland State Board after completion of the D.A.T.S. program and then my Certified Dental Assisting license a year following. I have been a Carroll County resident most of my life but currently reside in Littlestown, PA. When I’m not keeping busy with teeth, you can find me spending time with my dogs, in my garden, playing video games, or in the pool swimming and hanging out with friends.

Krystal Wise, RDH


I graduated from Harrisburg Area Community College but was born and raised in Carroll County. At the start of hygiene school it was clear that periodontics would be the path that I was going to take.  After two and a half years in general dentistry, it was time to make the switch and could not be happier as this is my passion. I enjoy playing softball, reading, and spending as much time with my family as possible.
