Office Manager

Welcome to our practice! I am the friendly face at the front desk. I love to find ways to help people smile and that includes building confidence to share their smile! I am happy to answer your questions, plan for appointments, help resolve concerns and make your visits positive. I also work with the insurances. I am here to assist you through explaining and discussing your insurance benefits and processing dental claims. I enjoy working with you on the financial aspects of your dental needs. It is important to me that each of you enjoy a feeling of ease and confidence in our office. We all work extremely well together to provide the best service for you. Our staff is very warm and inviting. I love the positive energy felt by everyone and I really appreciate the attentive care our doctors and team strive to provide to each patient.

In my spare time I love to cook and look for travel deals. I love traveling the world and immersing myself in different cultures.


Administrative and Dental Assistant

You will see me in both the front and back office. I am responsible for all of the ordering and managing inventory. I will help you schedule your appointments and answer your questions while you’re in the office or on the phone. I also assist the doctor clinically. I enjoy working with our team, as we all try to create a welcoming environment.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my son and our favorite thing to do together is to be outdoors and try new foods to eat. We try to be as adventurous as we can and are always looking for new things to do together.
