Before becoming a Dental Hygienist, I had a career in Cosmetology. The patient interaction and ability to make a difference in someone’s life are two similar qualities between Dental Hygiene and Cosmetology that really make my career rewarding. Being able to transfer the energy of giving a client a makeover, into the energy of giving a patient a healthier, brighter smile is so fulfilling.
My favorite part about dentistry is the patient relationships that are formed within the office. This is what led me to my current position at API as the Patient Care Coordinator. I really love being able to greet each patient with a smile and make them feel comfortable and welcome before they begin their care in our office. With my career, I also enjoy the variety of tasks that I endure on a daily basis.
Outside of the office, I love spending time with my husband Bruce, our son Tripp, and our two dogs, Braxton and Mic. As a family, we enjoy trips to Stillwater, golfing, and Ranger rides!
