I am registered dental assistant, and I have been working in the dental field for almost 10 years.

I have been a member of the team here since 2013, providing patient care through various roles within the office. Outside the world of teeth, I enjoy spending time with my family, doing arts and crafts projects, and watching Hallmark movies (bonus if it is a holiday special).
