I'm usually the first person you see when you come into the office. I have over 30 years of experience in the dental field including assisting and front office, which allows me the ability to answer patients technical questions, as well as any financial or insurance related questions. I look forward to seeing the look on my patient's face when they realize they can finally have the smile they've always dreamed of. This is not a job to me-it is my passion!
When I'm not at work I enjoy spend time with my family and friends.
My job includes scheduling appointments, presenting treatment plans and communicating with insurance companies on behalf of our patients. Sometimes I will act as a sounding board for Melissa and Dr. Luong as well. I've been in the dental field since 2000 and studied biology and chemistry for four years in college. I am well versed in the business aspect of both dental and medical offices. I love the challenge my job presents and really go to bat for our patients when dealing with insurance issues.
My family is my life. There is nothing like being surrounded by all their craziness and love. My family does include the four legged variety, as we have two dogs and five cats. I love reading, swimming and traveling.
I received my training at Waco Dental Assisting School. I am also certified in nitrous oxide sedation.
Having worked in the field of dentistry since 2017, I chose the profession because I love and enjoy being part of transforming people’s smiles. I am also pleased to be able to work with our patients to help minimize any fears they have about visiting the dentist.
I grew up in Bruceville-Eddy, Texas, and in my free time, I love traveling, being outdoors, and spending time with my family.
I have been a registered dental assistant since December of 2019. I graduated from Waco Dental Assistant School.I am currently a Temple College student pursuing my degree in hopes to become a dental hygienist. I strive every day to expand and grow my knowledge in dentistry.I love helping patients realize their dream of a beautiful, healthy smile and a renewed sense of confidence.
I am new to the dental field but determined to keep my patients smiling.After serving in the U.S. military until 2020 I chose a new career path and obtained my RDA license. I assist the dentist with all dental procedures and I also help the hygienist with her patients by taking x-rays and making sure her patients enjoy their routine dental care visit.
I enjoy laughing and caring for others. I love getting to know my patients and will always ensure their dental visits are relaxing and pleasant.
I began my career as a dental assistant. As an assistant I found a love for dentistry which motivated me to pursue a degree in dental hygiene at the University of Texas School of Dentistry in Houston. Fast forward 30 years later and I still love educating my patients and getting to know them.
I have been married to my husband Bruce for 35 years and enjoy spending family time with my two adult children, Jacob and Hannah.
