Our dental team has combined experience of 116 years in the dental field. Our staff works to maintain certification in CPR, and x-ray technology and placement. Our hygienists are certified with dental radiography and also with dental anesthesia.
Our staff consists of our two hygienists, Suzanne Sanchez and Griselda Sosa. Our patients appreciate the opportunity to see the hygienist of their preference and if they have two family members who would like to be seen at the same time they can be seen on Tuesdays and complete their work at the same time. Our office manager is Loretta Leiker. You will appreciate her accurate and efficient service. Heather Rushing provides assistance both in the back office and in the front. Her flexibility makes it easier for our staff to meet the demands as they come. Patricia Sanchez is doctor’s assistant at the chair and does an awesome job. Kessiah Judy is our newest employee. She brings a lot of smiles and energy to the office. Betty Harker, who has been with us for 22 years, is still our main contact for ordering our supplies and keeping us organized.
