Meet the Staff


I have been with Blattner Endodontic Care for 10 years ! I previously worked as a certified orthodontic assistant for eleven years. I also did some chair side dental assisting for two years. After taking some time off with my son I took a position with a busy neurology office and obtained my certified medical coding certificate with the AMA. In my free time I love spend time with my husband, family and friends at Kentucky Lake and being outside on walks with my sweet dog.  We recently welcomed our first grand daughter Charlee Beth and she is the joy of my life!!  I enjoy working with people of all ages and  providing excellent customer service in a caring environment.


My name is Joy Sellers and I’m thrilled to be back in Southeast Missouri and part of the Blattner Endodontic Care staff.  After years of raising my two daughters and working as an administration assistant, I entered the dental field and it has been a perfect fit.  When not caring for patients, I enjoy spending time with my husband and family, attending grandkids activities, Cardinal Baseball, going to concerts, running, traveling,  and getting to a beach anywhere!
