tracy pepple

office manager

Welcome to our Website – I am Tracy Pepple the Office Manager for Auburn Pediatric Dentistry. I have over 29 years of experience in the dental field. I have been married to my husband for 33 years and we have two boys and four of the most beautiful granddaughters.

I met Dr Derrow the summer of 2006, she asked me to join her in creating a friendly, fun loving dental home for children. We both share the same philosophy; Treat others the same way we expect to be treated, especially our children!

In my previous position at an Orthodontic office I worked with older children and adults. What a great change getting to meet all of our new little friends. It brings such joy knowing that we make your child’s visit to the dentist a fun and loving experience.

I look forward to meeting you and your child, I will help to make sure you have all your questions answered and make your experience at Auburn Pediatric Dentistry as wonderful as you expect and deserve.

jamie williams

dental assistant

Hello, friends! My name is Jamie Williams, a dental assistant for Auburn Pediatric Dentistry. I have worked for APD for 6 years now. I started working here after completing my externship from dental assisting school. I am married and have three kids.

I first met Dr. Derrow when my youngest child was referred for dental treatment by another office in town. My son was 4 years old and had never had any treatment other than a cleaning. After such a positive experience with Dr. Derrow and staff, my children have been patients ever since. I went back to school after all my children were in school full time, and became a dental assistant. I completed my externship at APD and was hired right after. I am happy to be part of a team that makes dental treatment a fun and positive experience.

ericka clem

front desk manager

My name is Ericka Clem, and I am the first face and voice of Auburn Pediatric Dentistry. My husband, Ryan and I have three beautiful children Gavin, Caleb, and Alaina. I joined the Auburn Pediatric Dentistry team in March 2019. Before I became an employee, our three children were patients here, and remain so today.

My husband Ryan and I knew this was a special place when our family first stepped in the door for our initial visit 10 years ago. The smiles on our children’s faces, and their excitement was priceless! We immediately felt at home with the Auburn Pediatric Dentistry staff!

I was so excited to become an employee, and an official part of the family! It is so rewarding to be able to give patients the same great experience my family had years ago! I love the fun atmosphere of our office, and look forward to spreading happy little smiles!
