Tina, Office Manager
I have been in the orthodontic field since 1994. I began my career in my hometown of Yuma, AZ with a local orthodontist. I love working with patients and providing quality service to acheive beautiful smiles!
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching movies, and traveling. I also enjoy attending social events with my husband, and coordinating family events.
I have been a dental assistant since 2004, and became a registered dental assistant in 2005. I have experience working in general dentistry, oral surgery, and orthodontics. I enjoy making patients comfortable. I also enjoy seeing patients confidence levels rise as treatment progresses and love their big smiles at the end of treatment.
Hobbies: I enjoy family outings and traveling. I also enjoy watching movies and having good food with family and friends.
Ever since my hands-on training from UEI, I have been interested in becoming an orthodontic assistant. I enjoy chairside assisting in orthodontics and helping patients obtain a better smile.
On my spare time I do enjoy going out to the parks with friends, playing soccer, and going to the movies. I also like going on long drives to explore new locations and site-seeing.
I have over 30 years of experience working chairside with orthodontic patients. I enjoy forming relationships with each patient, and seeing the transformations that takes place in every smile.
On my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, antiquing and reading. I also enjoy taking weekend trips along the beautiful California coast.
