Thanks for looking at my short autobiography. I grew up in Crescent City, a tiny town on the California coastline right in the heart of the famous redwood forest. Lisa, my wife, and I met in college and married on August 21, 2007. We have four awesome children, Finn, Allie Rae, Hudson, and Beau.
While attending University of the Pacific, the top clinical dental school in the world, I learned how to care for patients in the most evidence based, preventative way, and graduated as one of the top clinicians in my class (I was even recognized as an exceptional student by The International College of Oral Implantologists.) After dental school, I worked with multiple skilled dentists in Virginia while preparing and waiting for the right practice opportunity to come along.
We found our home in Winchester. My family and I love Winchester for its character, proximity to family (Lisa is from Woodbridge), and culture (I love how so many people smile and say hello).
When I am not seeing patients at the office, you might find me walking downtown, hiking, biking, or shopping at the grocery store. Wherever I am, Lisa and the kids are sure to be close by.
Lucky is the perfect word to describe how we feel about having Erika join Apple Blossom Dentistry. As she has been here, she has proven to be an excellent fit for us. Working at the front desk, she is a bright, engaging, cheerful person; perfect for welcoming patients. This is not a surprise as she spends much of her personal time volunteering throughout the community with an focus on those most in need. Many of you probably know Erika as she is a fixture around Winchester and someone you don’t forget.
Patient Care Coordinator
Every patient who has had the privilege of being seen by Morgann has left with a healthier, more beautiful smile. She is an excellent hygienist and an even better person. Morgann has a gentle personality to go with a gentle touch. I have been impressed many times by Morgann’s attention to detail, work ethic, and her ability to make patients comfortable. We are so happy that Morgann is a part of our dental family.
Millie is a person that makes it easy to come to work. She is responsible, smart and funny! You will encounter her on the phone or when you need someone to battle your insurance on your behalf. She is a great mother to Paisley. We are glad to have her as our office manager!
Our team has certainly found a great member in Ashley. She is a helpful, fun, kind, and certainly a fantastic hygienist. Her patients universally appreciate her. Her breakfast sandwiches are coveted by her co-workers. We are thrilled to have Ashley return to our team (long story)!
We searched for a long time to find the right person to fill this position, and our patience paid off. Dana is an excellent person and hygienist. Not only is Dana fast and thorough and sharp as a tack, she is also easy going with a quick laugh. This makes her a pleasure to work with and be around. When not at work, she will be flipping diapers, dumbbells, or houses!
Michelle Michelle Michelle! We are lucky to have Michelle. She is kind, considerate, thoughtful, and hardworking. You will most likely interact with Michelle over the phone or when you are checking in or checking out. Michelle is known and loved by many in the community where she is active in epilepsy awareness. If you would like to contribute to the cause, Geremy’s Warriors SUDEP Foundation go to Facebook@geremyswarriors.
Melissa is a cherished part of a dental dream team! (We sometimes wonder if she has any flaws?) She is smart, proactive and enjoyable to be around. We always have a good time with our patients. Her high character is a gift to her wonderful family as well as the community at large. Ask her about her kids, dog, or the next church party she is planning!
When we needed to find another hygienist to add to the team, Ashley told me she knew just the person. Sarah has proven Ashley’s good judgment! Sarah is happy, laid-back, hard working, and fun to be around. Sarah has added to our reputation of having excellent and gentle dental hygienists. She works with us part-time while spending the rest of the time with her growing family.
Lia always brings a smile with her exciting. She always has a story about her cute kids, travel plans, projects, and her husband Lamar. We were lucky to have her join our practice after years of experience. Life brought her here from Connecticut a few years and I always put in the extra effort to make sure she calls Winchester home for the long term.
Scout is a good boy! He loves coming up to the office to hang out up front with his co-workers. People are his favorite! If you'd like to visit, just ask and we can bring him around to the waiting room for a greeting! (Scout is hypoallergenic and is kept out of treatment areas as Dr. Haynie is a bit of a germophobe;)

It’s rare that you’ll find a dental team that is so passionate about each aspect of the patient experience. At Apple Blossom Dentistry, we’re intentional about creating a warm, welcoming environment where you can walk in and feel at ease.

Amy is awesome. She was instrumental in establishing Apple Blossom Dentistry. Her next adventure includes expanding her other ventures, you may end up seeing her at a local farmers market. She will also be home schooling her son, Landon. Amy’s contributions to our operations and culture will continue to benefit patients.
Occasionally in life, you have the privilege of meeting someone who truly elevates everyone around them. This is Regina. In addition to being the best dental assistant ever, her personality and her laugh make her someone that you, as a patient, want by your side as you come in for your dental care. Regina and her husband, Dan, have moved back to Florida where Regina is pursuing her education and considering a transition to dental hygiene or dentistry.
This practice was built and maintained by Dr. Garnes for nearly four decades during which he established a reputation as the best dentist in Winchester. His down-to-earth personality combined with his patient-first mentality made him an excellent dentist. I am honored to have Dr. Garnes’ vote of confidence as he has selected me to carry on his legacy.
Mrs. Garnes is the heart and soul of this practice and has been here longer than anyone other than Dr. Garnes. Her greatest strength is the most important one of all, the ability to see and meet the needs of others. As Mrs. Garnes spends less time at the office, she has more time to pursue her talent as a cook, beautify her fantastic flower garden, and enjoy the countless friends she has made over the years.
I met Jillian when I first started at Apple Blossom Dentistry and was very impressed by her. When the opportunity came along to have her join our team, it was an easy decision and an exciting day! Jillian is professional, fun, and compassionate. These attributes make her a great hygienist and co-worker. She is also somewhat of a renaissance woman having interests ranging from health to construction to art to playing the fiddle. You will love her.
Cindy has been an assistant at this practice for about a decade, and I believe she has had a smile every time I’ve seen her. Cindy is friendly, smart, and a quick learner. She was born and raised in Winchester. When she is not at work, she is with her husband David doing awesome things like motorcycling, bowling, and fishing.
Trish is a lot of fun to work with and is well liked by her patients and peers. Attributes such as attention to detail, dedication to health, good chairside manner, and a wonderful laugh make her a wonderful hygienist. Trish is often spending her time watching her three wonderful children play sports. When you see her, ask her about her many adventures traveling.
We’ve worked hard to create an environment that is warm and welcoming. When you first visit Apple Blossom Dentistry, you’ll notice that each member of our team loves what they do, especially when it comes to interacting with patients. You’ll be greeted by our front desk staff, who will answer any of your questions prior to your appointment.
Once you’ve checked in and completed any forms, you’ll be taken back to our operatories, where our hygienists and doctors will be ready for you.
Whether you’re receiving a routine cleaning or a cosmetic makeover, our full attention will be on you! We’ll make sure to explain our treatment recommendations with full transparency so you can make an educated decision about your smile. You’ll always have time to share any questions or concerns with Dr. Haynie, who is happy to sit and talk with you.
