I have been a Dental Financial Coordinator and Team Leader for nine years. Like many people in the dental field, dentistry found me, despite the fact that it wasn’t my ‘original calling.’ I truly enjoy being a part of a patient’s journey to health and a new smile that marks our success together. Dental insurance can be frustrating and confusing, but I am a patient expert at decoding the insurance world and I will be helpful at easing your pathway towards your financial decisions. I love helping run the practice, making sure we are humming along smoothly and acting as a liaison between you, the doctor and the staff. When I’m not working at Advanced Periodontics, I’m a homebody down to my core. Family is most important to me. The mantra I live by is Love, Honor, Pity, Pride, Compassion and Sacrifice!
Registered Dental Hygienist
Little known fact: I am one of Dr. Sandak’s first dental assistants! I enjoyed the field so much that I never left. My dental career began over 15 years ago and, in 2002, I graduated from Forsyth School of Dental Hygiene in Boston, M.A. I’m an active member of the American Dental Hygiene Association. I love what I do and I feel my attributes are my compassion, passion and knowledge in my chosen field.
The thing I enjoy most about working as a hygienist is the ability to connect with an individual and help them understand and learn about their oral health.
In my free time, I practice yoga, enjoy salsa dancing, hiking, biking and traveling. I’ve already been to Thailand, Columbia, the American West, the Caribbean and Costa Rica. When I’m not working as a hygienist, the world is my oyster!
