Loriann S. Rast

Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)/Certification to Administer Infiltration Anesthesia/STM Certification.

I am a graduate of Midlands technical College. Before becoming a Dental Hygienist I was an EDDA( Dental Asst.) for 8 years .I have worked for Dr. Paton since 2009. My 21 years in dentistry has been very rewarding. Coming to work is no struggle for me. I love my job, the staff and Dr. Paton!  My husband, Kevin and I have known each other since we were 11 years old. We are blessed with our sweet boy, Cooper, who is five. We all love anything outdoors. Living in the country allows us to do just that! Four wheelers, beach, hunting, and fishing.

Mandy Jackson


Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

I earned my Associate Degree from Midlands Technical College and became a Registered Dental Hygienist in 1997. I began my career in my hometown of Camden, SC. After having worked one day a week at Paton Family Dentistry for a while years ago, I was excited to have the opportunity to return for a full-time position! I absolutely love getting to know the patients here and caring for them!

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Adam, and my son, Noah! I also enjoy gardening, fishing, Clemson football, and being a "band mom"!

Jessie Curvin


Dental Assistant

I graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. I have been a dental assistant for over 6 years now and have loved every minute of it! I have two fur babies and a high school sweetheart at home whom I love dearly. In my free time I love to paint (acrylic on canvas) and spend time with my friends. Even though I am the new kid on the block at Paton Family Dentistry, I think it is safe to say I’ll be sticking around a while!
