I started out in the dental field in 1986 helping my friend out who was a dentist. Who would have known that I would fall in love with the dental field. Fast forward to today, I have been able to hold every position in the office except dentist. I love helping our patients build confidence in their experience with us and within themselves. To overcome their fear of the dentist is a real thing. And that is where my experience comes in. I truly enjoy building relationships with my patients. They aren’t just patients, they are our dental family.
I also have a passion for photography, quilting, archery and my family. I’m blessed with a wonderful husband; three children who have given me at this time 6 BEAUTIFUL grandchildren.
I joined the Bella Vista Smiles team in 2021 and my role is to help patients get the most benefits from their insurance and help them with their billing and claim questions. If you have any questions regarding your insurance, I am here to help you! When I am not assisting patients with their questions or handling the billing of our office, I enjoy spending time with my two dogs, Louis Vuitton and Coco Chanel.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I began my dental career as a dental assistant in 1996. I moved on to become an RDA and worked for 8 years until I decided to become a hygienist. I graduated from dental hygiene school in 2006 and have enjoyed serving my community ever since. My hobbies include wine tasting and spending time with my family.
Registered Dental Assistant
I recently moved to California in 2017 where I became a RDA. I am originally from Boston and I still call it home. I have been in the Dental Field for 17 years and I have a passion for the field and loves what I do. I came to California for the sun, my significant other and three kids. When I am not working at Bella Vista Smiles, I love walks outside, singing and traveling!

I am quick to make patient’s feel at ease by building confidence, trust and friendships with each patient and my colleagues that derive from the heart and we remain connected as friends when its all said and done.
