All About
Our Smiles

At All About Smiles, our staff is like family. We work seamlessly together toward one common goal — to provide our patients with affordable, quality dental care.

Dr. James C. Puccio, DDS from All About Smiles

Dr. James C. Puccio, DDS

Hello, my name is Dr. James C. Puccio, DDS. I would like to share the dental philosophy I’ve developed over my years as a dentist.

  • I believe that dentistry can be affordable for everyone. You don’t always need the most expensive procedure to save a tooth.
  • I also believe that if it is not broken, don’t fix it. This means that if a filling, crown, or other restoration is still doing its job, then we do not have to replace it.
  • I also believe that conserving tooth structure is very important. People are living longer, and we want to make their teeth outlast them. Thus, with all my fillings, crowns, and procedures that require cutting on tooth structure, I will remove only what is necessary to provide a good product.
  • Along with conserving tooth structure, I believe in prevention. This means having dental cleanings twice each year and brushing and flossing two times a day. If any tooth is starting to decay or have problems, it can be caught early, and the fixes remain small.
  • Some small things can be fixed without numbing. Two new procedures I am doing are Lumineers, which require little or no tooth structure be removed and no numbing injections necessary and micro-implants, which are affordable ways of replacing teeth or stabilizing dentures.

 

Dr. Arshia B. Meyers, DDS

I grew up in Terre Haute, Indiana. After college, I attended Indiana University School Of Dentistry. I received my DDS degree in 1992. I moved to Ohio in 1999, and I have been practicing dentistry in Middletown ever since.

Our great staff and patients make being a dentist enjoyable. Providing the best quality dental work is very important to me. Knowing that most people do not like to visit the dentist, it is equally important to me to put patients at ease during their dental visits.

When I’m not working, I spend a lot of time with my family. In my spare time, I love to play tennis and read.

I have worked in dentistry for Dr. Puccio for 45 years. There are always new and interesting innovations in dentistry that improve patients’ experiences.

I have been married for over 50 wonderful years. We have a son, daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren. Basset hounds are my passion. I have had four, and my current basset is named Bassey Jingle Belle Berger by my granddaughter (we got her at Christmas).

I am part of the front office staff. I have worked with Dr. Puccio for eighteen years. Most of our staff members have worked together so long; we consider ourselves family. My favorite part of my job is forming relationships with our patients. I always look forward to seeing them upon return for an appointment and catching up on their lives.

When I’m not with my All About Smiles family, I’m with my husband, Mike, and our children, Miyah, Lilah, and Jack. As a family, we have a passion for music. We collect vinyl records and go to concerts together.

Tawni Taulbee, Dental Assistant at All About Smiles

Tawni Taulbee, Dental Assistant

I grew up here in Middletown, Ohio. In 2013, I realized I was tired of working a dead-end job, so I found my passion, dentistry! I attended Miami Jacobs, where I earned an associates degree in dental assisting. I graduated from Miami Jacobs in 2015 and have been a part of the All About Smiles Family ever since.

I am very passionate about Dental Assisting, along with all the ups and downs that come with it. My absolute favorite part of my job is that is doesn’t really feel like a job. My primary focus is helping other people smile!

Debby Risner, Dental Assistant at All About Smiles

Debby Risner, Dental Assistant

I’m Debby Risner, and I have been with The Drs. Puccio for over 45 years. Working part-time now, one of my joys is being “work mom” to the two younger assistants. I assist them with their duties during the day. My other responsibilities include scanning patient documents and keeping the sterilization room running smoothly. Working with the staff in the office for so many years has made them family to me.

Along with my “work family,” my greatest joy is my real family. I have the pleasure of being a pastor’s wife. My husband, Keith, and I have seven adult children and 26 grandchildren.

I have been working for Dr.Puccio since 1997. I have worked as both a dental assistant and dental hygienist. I graduated IMDT in 1997 and Sinclair Community College in 2009. One thing I love about my job is seeing how changing a patient’s smile improves their confidence.

In my spare time, I enjoy being with my husband and three children.

I am blessed to have worked as a dental hygienist with Dr. Puccio and Dr. Myers since 1990. As a hygienist, I love working with our doctors bringing smiles and dental health to our patients. One of my favorite aspects of patient care is helping the patients understand the correlation between the health of their mouths and their overall health.

Terry Bova, Dental Technician at All About Smiles

Terry Bova, Dental Technician

My position at All About Smiles is staff dental technician. I do the dental lab work (complete dentures, etc.) for Dr. Puccio and Dr. Myers. I think I make a positive difference to the overall dental health of our patients by providing the finest prostheses I can fabricate. My guiding philosophy is, “Always make a dental appliance as if I were going to wear it.” I think having a positive attitude and treating our patients with respect is my contribution to the continued success of the practice.

I am happily married to my wife Donna for over 29 years. We have three grown children and our beloved beagle.

I’ve had a passion for dentistry since I was in high school. My first job was working part time for a dentist when I was 16, where I learned hands on how to chair-side assist. I continued down the dental assisting career path and joined Dr. Puccios work family In 2007. I’ve been cross trained to work with both Drs, manage sterilization and help with the front desk. You never know which area you’ll see me in when you come for your Appt, but I’ll always greet you with a warm smile!

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my kids, being outdoors and making fancy cakes.
