Meet the Team

Our Warm and Friendly Dental Team

In order to provide the highest level of service, we have selected a team that is not only competent, but unusually warm and friendly. People like this are not easy to find. We are very fortunate to have built such a quality team. You’ll notice the difference on your first visit!

Carla Gaskalla

Office Manager

Carla has been serving patients of Northgate Family Dentistry for over 25 years. She enjoys interacting with all our amazing patients. She works very hard but enjoys her Fridays because she can do her “Happy” dance with some of the other team members. Outside of work, she enjoys Zumba. She is also happily married to her husband of 34 years, Dan, and she has a son and a daughter who are both married. She is the proud grandma to two lovely granddaughters, Nora and Addison, and one grandson, Owen!

Allison Vaughn

Insurance Coordinator

Allison attended First Impressions Dental Assisting prior to joining Northgate Family Dentistry two years ago. Outside of work, she likes to spend time with family, friends, and her three dogs. She also likes to go bowling and watch the Buckeyes with her dad.

Megan Thomas

Scheduling Coordinator

Megan is one of our newest team members. She has two brothers and a golden retriever named Gracie. In her free time, she likes to hang out with friends, travel, and enjoy the outdoors.

Carol Catley - Dental Hygienist
Carol Catley


Carol received her degree from The Ohio State University and has been on the Northgate team for 18 years. She comes from a very large family and loves to spend time with them. She has two daughters and one granddaughter, whom she adores. Other than spending time with family, she enjoys sunshine and being outdoors.

Cassie Bryan - Dental Hygienist
Cassie Bryan


Cassie received her dental hygiene degree at Ohio State, where she also obtained her EFDA, and has been working for Northgate Family Dentistry for two years. She likes to bake, be with family, and spend time outside, usually hiking or kayaking. If she could, she would spend every day sitting in the sand at a beach – but her real passion is working with patients and educating them about their oral health. She is known for her compassionate care and gentle touch.

Lindsey Stevens

Expanded Functions
Dental Assistant

Lindsey also joined our team about two years ago, and Northgate is glad to have her! When she’s not at work, she’s at the park with her son, Greyson, and her husband, John. She loves swimming and going on vacation with her family. She’s an animal lover, with two kitties at home named Lemon and Olive. When she’s not making people feel confident with their smiles, she’s enjoying being a licensed cosmetologist, making people feel beautiful.

Jillian Roaden

Dental Assistant

We welcomed Jillian to our team after she completed her training at Assist to Succeed of Columbus Dental Assisting School. She grew up in Plain City, where she was a cheerleader for 7 years. When she’s not at work she’s usually in the gym or cooking a hearty meal. Jill loves to read poetry and spend time with her two cats, Ruby and Annie. She enjoys a nice cup of Joe which is most likely why she’s always got a little extra pep in her step.

Hannah Widman

Dental Assistant

Hannah received her education in dental assisting at Owens Community College and became part of Northgate Family Dentistry about a year ago. She grew up in Fremont, where she swam competitively for eight years. She recently moved to Columbus to be closer to her sisters and live in a big city. She enjoys being active and is also a huge Taco Bell fan!

We look forward to providing you with excellent service!
