Elaina Sprigg has been in the dental field for two years. New to the Rother Dental family, she has served as a dental assistant for over a year.

Originally from Dillsburg, and a graduate of Northern High School, Elaina perused her dental assisting career after high school at Cumberland Perry Area Vocational Technical School. 

Her reason for choosing the dental field was having the ability to help patients achieve a smile they’re comfortable with and proud of when finishing their treatment of any level. Elaina also has a passion for helping out the community with local charity events including volunteering as “The Tooth fairy”, at many local school visits!

Outside of the office you can find Elaina spending time outdoors, kayaking, traveling or spending time with her family.


Nicole grew up in Marquette, Michigan. She is a 2010 graduate of Gettysburg High School, and decided to pursue her dental career post graduation at York Technical Institute. She would graduate in 2013 and begin a career in endodontic dental assisting. 

Most recently broadening her dental assisting education in becoming a Expanded Functions Dental Assistant (EFDA), has brought her to the Rother Dental Family.

Her favorite part about working at Rother Dental is getting to meet new people and seeing their lives be transformed by the work that occurs daily.

“Be the reason someone smiles today!”

In Nicole’s free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Austin and her two children Aaron & Isaac. You may also find her hiking in Caledonia State Park and traveling back home to Michigan to visit family and friends.


Keri is an Extended Function Dental Assistant (EFDA) who has been making strides in the dental field for the past 5 years.

She originally grew up around the Hershey area and graduated from Keystone Technical Institute.

She’s always been interested in teeth ever since she got her wisdom teeth out and had such a wonderful experience after being so terrified. Oral surgery is what really got her passionate about jumping into the world of dentistry.

When she’s not helping Dr. Rother achieve healthy smiles for patients, she’s usually spending time with her husband fishing, hunting and partaking in crossfit.
