Dr. Harrison, DNAP, MSN, CRNA, is a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist who typically cares for pediatric or special needs patients, as well as patients who require extensive dental care undertaken in one visit.
She meets with patients who have requested moderate sedation prior to their procedure and helps alleviate patients’ fears and anxiety by administering medications to keep them comfortable throughout their procedure. From Dr. Harrison’s view, she has the best career in nursing and loves supporting her patients. Ever since shadowing an anesthesiologist as a high school student in Asheville, NC, Dr. Harrison knew she would become a nurse anesthetist.
Dr. Harrison started her nursing career at Mercy School of Nursing in Charlotte, NC, and went on to pursue her diploma of Nurse Anesthesia at the Medical College of Virginia. She stayed in Richmond, working as a staff CRNA for several anesthesia groups. In 2000, she became an independent contractor and owner of LCH Anesthesia Services, where she specialized in office-based anesthesia services – and ultimately earned her doctorate in Nurse Anesthesia Practice at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Health Professions.
Dr. Harrison served as Captain in the Navy Nurse Corps. She retired with 26 years of service to our country.
Dr. Harrison is a member of the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists and Federal Health Care Executives Institute. She has also served in many roles for the Virginia Association of Nurse Anesthetists, including President and Government Relations Chair, among others.
Most recently, she was recognized with Virginia Commonwealth University’s Department of Nurse Anesthesia’s Outstanding Alumnus Award for 2017. Dr. Harrison enjoys traveling and cooking – and looks forward to any opportunity to do more of it.

The staff at Midlothian Dental Center always makes me feel welcome. They give you a warm welcome when you walk in the door. I had brought my daughter with me 3 separate times during Covid and hadn’t been there until my cleaning and the staff remembered my daughter’s name.
Everyone is very nice here from the dentists to the hygienists to the front desk office staff! They are extremely helpful and happy to answer any and all questions. They are very clear about what they are doing and how they can help you with cosmetic or needed dental issues.
The BEST dental staff I've EVER had the pleasure of being a patient of! Dr. Barrett is wonderful at putting his patients at ease and Libby & Mary are so kind and gracious! I and my family have grown with them for over the last 20 years and love them very much!!!
We love working with Dr. Jared Hoover and his team at Midlothian Dental Center! He and his staff are professional yet very welcoming and informative. We always know we are in great care! Makes us look forward to our visits!
Greatest staff ever! We see Dr. Hoover and Erica (Hygienist) and couldn’t be more satisfied. Our 4 year old is obsessed with going to the dentist, and while that’s not common, they made it happen! She had two teeth extracted and laughed the whole time!
I’ve been seeing Dr. Tart for over a year now and have always had a great experience. He and the team are very professional, honest, and seem to really care about helping their patients. I appreciate their COVID protocols and feel very safe at the office. Highly recommend!
Omg! I had a phenomenal visit! Ashley was absolutely terrific. Her experience, knowledge, and overall personality was unmatched. Dr. Gore has a great staff, which has kept me returning year after year for close to thirty years.
I had big hesitations about going to the dentist because I had waited 9+ years due to a really bad exp that created major dental phobia. Thanks to Dr Harris and Karla, I left there feeling better about myself and even though I need work done, I feel confident about going back!! It’s nice to know you are never alone in any situation!
My dad was a dentist and recently passed away, so this was the first dental cleaning in my entire 43 years ever done by someone else. To say I was reticent would be an understatement. However, from the moment I walked in the door to Midlothian Dental Center, I was put at ease. The hygienist, Allison, was charming, kind, and knowledgeable. Dr. Harris was gracious, thorough, and just absolutely lovely. While I will always miss my dad as a dentist, I am confident he is happy to have passed my smile onto Dr. Harris and the team at Midlothian Dental Center. I truly feel blessed to have found a new home for my smile.
