The registered dental hygienists at the Family Dental Center play an important role in dental health and overall health education of our patients. Your visit will include diagnostic X-rays, as well as screenings for oral cancer, TMJ, periodontal disease, and cavities. After assessing your periodontal health, a thorough cleaning will be performed followed by oral hygiene instructions. Our hygienists also provide non-surgical periodontal treatment, apply sealants, and administer local anesthesia and nitrous oxide.
I graduated from Missouri Southern State College in Joplin, MO in 2003 and joined the Family Dental Center team in 2006. My patients are by far my favorite part of my job. I absolutely love to visit with them and genuinely care about their well-being. I find it very exciting and rewarding to be a part of improving someone's smile. I think we have the best dentists in the area. Not only do they have amazing talent in dentistry, but they also really caring people.
I have been married nine years and have two amazing daughters.
My dental career began back in 1989 and I became one of the Family Dental Center's hygienists in 1995. I have the great opportunity to work with some of the nicest people I've ever had the chance to meet, and coming to work every day is truly a joy. I've also enjoyed getting to know all our patients and their families over the years as I help them improve and maintain their oral health. I am happily married with one daughter and two dogs.
In my free time, I enjoy snow skiing, boating, playing the piano, and spending quality time with my family.
I love building relationships with my patients as I help to improve their oral health. I've worked at the Family Dental Center since 2002 and now think of this office as my second family. Everyone here is caring, supportive, and fun; I feel very fortunate to work with such a great team.

I enjoy traveling with my husband George and working in our garden at home. Spending time with my family is very important to me. We have two children and three amazing grandchildren. I spend my free time playing tennis and enjoying the outdoors. My church family at Johnson keeps me focused on what's really important as well.
It is my priority to care for patients by performing dental cleanings, oral cancer screenings, periodontal screenings, and providing oral hygiene instruction, all in order to educate patients on their oral health and make them aware of its correlation to their overall general health. With 20 years of experience, I've built many relationships with patients, and I look forward to meeting many more people here at Family Dental Center.

I've been at Family Dental Center for more than 13 years, and in that time, I've been able to care for second and third generations of so many families. I get to personally see each generation become more comfortable with being at the dentist, as well as healthier and better educated about dental diseases and treatment. I truly believe we're creating a new generation of patients who are no longer nervous about a dental visit and even enjoy their time with us! I love that, without a doubt, I trust my doctors' judgment and the quality of their work. It's so much easier to talk to a patient about treatment they need when you totally believe in your doctors and their expertise.
I've been married to my husband Ron for nearly 14 years. We have two young sons that keep us very busy. We've lived in Fayetteville since college and now spend our time on a few acres outside of town. At any given time, we may have a few cows, goats, chickens, or rabbits. Life is never boring!
