Meet Our Team
Registered Dental Hygienist
My patients’ oral health is my main priority. In addition to providing patients with dental checkups and cleanings, applying sealants, and taking X-rays, I also give oral home care instructions. With 25 years of experience in dentistry, I’ve met and gotten to know many people, but I’ve found nothing more satisfying than working with children. It’s exciting for me to help a timid child relax and actually enjoy their dental visit!
I live nearby with my silly husband, my two great children, and sweet puppy named Marshmallow.
Certified Dental Assistant
While I can be found in the clinic area setting up, assisting at chairside, and cleaning up for all dental and orthodontic procedures, I also work in the lab where I fabricate retainers, mouthguards, and whitening trays. Most importantly, I do my very best to make patients feel as comfortable as possible in a dental office setting. I’ve enjoyed the 30 years I’ve spent in dentistry, but these past five years at Briarcliff have been the best! I love working with children, our team, and especially our doctors. I have a lot of patience after raising three children of my own!
At home, I have a Chihuahua and a cat. They give me joy and keep me busy!
Registered Dental Hygienist
I provide our young patients with oral examinations and cleanings, take X-rays, give fluoride treatments, place sealants, and offer oral home care instructions so our patients have all the knowledge they need to keep their smiles healthy and bright. I joined our office in 2005 and have more than 30 years of experience working in dentistry. I love working with children and seeing their smiling faces at the end of their appointment. Our office has a very professional yet warm and comfortable working environment — perfect for our patients and staff to enjoy.
I am happily married with three grown children and a sweet, adorable dog. I enjoy taking long hikes with my dog and playing tennis in my free time.
