As a child I loved to go to the Dentist. From the moment I walked into the office, I loved the way it smelled, so clean and healthy! The woman at the front desk was so kind, friendly and smiled a lot! I graduated in 1975 in San Francisco with a degree in Dental Assisting. I have had the opportunity to work as a dental assistant in General Dentistry and in many specialty offices, Pedodontics (children) Orthodontics (straightening of teeth), and Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy). I went back to college in 1984 to study Business Management. I moved to Oregon in 1977 and returned to California in 2014. Some of my interests outside of dentistry are: reading, mushroom hunting, searching for Sea Glass, storm watching and looking for animals in the forest.
