Meet the Team
I have been in dentistry for over 20 years and I genuinely LOVE what I do! My goal here everyday is to change the hearts and minds of patients who dread going to the dentist office, by changing their experiences to positive ones at dental visits. I’m the comedian of the office because I love to laugh and make others laugh with me. I’m single mom to one amazing 18yr old boy & I am excited for this new chapter in my life, life after your kid is 18.
I am a California native, but moved to AZ in 2005. I fell in love with AZ the moment we arrived (except for the heat). I am married and we have two sons, one daughter and our dog Kali.
I have been in dentistry since 2015 and absolutely love everything about dentistry. The highlight of my job is seeing how happy my patients are after their treatment is completed, and they love their new smile. It reminds me of why I love dentistry.
When I am away from the office, I enjoy getting out of the heat by taking trips to Sedona and Flagstaff with my husband and our children. My favorite place to be is at Target, I mean what mom doesn’t like to spend their quiet time there? (at least I do)!
After graduating from BYU in theater and dance, I came home looking for a job. A dentist friend of mine asked me to come help him for the summer at his office, and I ended up falling in love with dentistry. Watching patients finally be able to smile because we were able to give them a perfect smile, was a career I wanted to keep doing. That was back in 1990 and I haven’t stopped yet.
I am a native to New Mexico, but have lived in Arizona since 1991. I have a son and twin daughters and one grandchild, who I spend most of my free time with. We enjoy traveling, especially to Disneyland! We love taking day trips to anywhere a plane can get us in a couple of hours. I love reading and spend many hours at the lake with a book in my hand. I have read the Harry Potter series, too many times to count!
I love being at Restoration Dental as the Office Manager. Dr. Naioom is one of the best dentists I have worked for and is also a very kind hearted boss. Our goal at Restoration Dental is to make sure you’re treated better than you have been at any dental office. We never judge on how your teeth look; we only want to help you obtain a smile you will show off to others.
I was born and raised in Northern Arizona and moved to the Phoenix area in 2008 to attend hygiene school. I graduated from Carrington College with a degree in dental hygiene and continued on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and Master’s degree in Business Administration. I have continued to work dental hygiene because of my passion for patient care and patient education. In my free time, I spend my days playing with my dogs and watching my daughter play soccer.
