After an interlude in real estate, Deborah returned to general dentistry and later became a registered dental assistant in addition to working in administration. She enjoys working with patients, explaining the treatment process and how dental treatment affects the patient’s whole health as well as helping with the financial considerations.

Ashley, Schedule Coordinator/Dental Assistant
When Ashley decided to become a dental assistant she knew it was the right place for herself. Meeting new people, constantly moving and learning more everyday is exactly what she wanted out of a career. Ashley is new to the team here and the staff at this office have shown her that she made the right decision. Working both the front office and assisting allows me to enjoy all angles of dentistry. My daughter is the best part of my life. We enjoy nature walks, reading, playing tickle and spending time with our family and friends.
