As a dental assistant, I help our dentists during procedures and perform other team duties around the office. This is a great place to be! I love when our patients leave with smiles on their faces. Our whole team truly cares about our community and we are honored to serve them. Our patients become more like friends of the office rather than just patients. After work, I love volunteering for the Special Olympics, and my little sister is a Special Olympics athlete!

Hello, it's nice to meet you! I work as a registered dental hygienist, and I provide preventative dental care and patient education. Our office is a great place to work and to visit because of our laid-back atmosphere! We even have a TV and radio in each operatory so kids can watch movies or their favorite cartoon during their visit. It makes the experience more enjoyable for everyone! Outside the office, I enjoy horseback riding and spending time with family and friends.

Welcome! I'm a dental hygienist, and I work hard cleaning teeth and educating patients on good oral health. I always treat my patients the way I would like to be treated, and take the time to know them personally at each visit. Our doctors are wonderful people, and always take care of patients as they would their own friends or relatives. At home, I love spending quality time with my husband and our son. I also love to read and take walks in my spare time.

As a certified dental assistant, I help put the patients at ease during treatment and help the dentists communicate and deliver effective care to their patients. Dentistry is like a foreign language to some people so I love teaching them new things. I love to communicate with the patient because I love getting to know people. Every time you meet a new person you learn new things about them and yourself! After work, I love being with my fianc'! I also find time to run.
