Meet our Team

Dental Hygienist

With a total of 23 years experience (17 years in Dental hygiene), my passion for Dentistry stems from a desire to assist others in the improvement of their overall health in a relaxed and comfortable environment.

My favorite pastime is spending time with family and friends. Off-roading in the mountains or the desert is one of our favorite things to do as a family!

Dental Assistant

I graduated and was certified as a chair-side assistant from Pima Medical Institute in 2013; and I have been Dr. McDonald’s dental assistant since 2014, providing people with a healthy and beautiful smile.

I do my very best to make sure my patients are comfortable and enjoy their time spent at our practice, and am proud of the way our team is able to meet the needs of each single patient. My favorite part of my job is the variety of procedures we do – because every procedure is different for every patient, and it keeps my job interesting. I love working with Doctor McDonald, because she is very knowledgeable and very caring with her patients.

When I’m not at work I like to spend time with my family and friends, and I love to watch movies. My favorite quote is: “A better life starts with a beautiful smile.”
