I have been in the dental field for 40 years. I grew up in Philadelphia, and after high school, I went to Expanded Functions Dental Assistant school for 2 years.

I graduated from Dental Hygiene school in June 1982, then continued on to earn my Bachelors in Science/Dental Hygiene Education. I’ve been married for over 37 years, and I’m the office manager for our practice. I find working with my husband, in our practice, is extremely rewarding as we both take pride in what we do.
