Registered Dental Hygienist
I’m in my 41st year of practicing dental hygiene after graduating from Idaho State University, despite having grown up in San Juan Capistrano. I truly enjoy coaching our patients about the important connection between oral hygiene and overall health. I feel our office is particularly suited to this endeavor as we employ an unusually experienced team of professionals. We all love dentistry and work hard to ensure the comfort of all our patients while taking care of their dental needs and desires. 35 years ago, I made the good decision to marry Doug and we’ve been blessed with two sons who are firefighters, are married, and live locally with our two granddaughters who have introduced us to the joys of being grandparents. We enjoy getting together for family dinners & celebrations, vacations in our motorhomes, and completing home projects. After my spinal cord injury 23 years ago, I personally have an on-going commitment to learning about better nutrition, regular exercise, and avoiding disease. Additionally, I enjoy cooking & baking, connecting with friends over lunch or coffee, reading, road trips, and seeking regular sunshine.
