We recognize that all our young patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your child to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.
We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I have been in the dental field for over 25 years and have been working with children for my entire career. My goal is to build a positive relationship with each child, while encouraging good brushing habits and educating them about healthy nutritional choices. Not only do I enjoy giving kids sparkling smiles each time they come to our office but also I enjoy watching them grow and mature throughout the years. My daily duties include cleaning teeth, applying fluoride, placing sealants, taking radiographs, taking intraoral photos, and educating parents and children about their oral health.
My husband Ron and I have a large, blended family that includes eight children and several grandchildren. In my free time I love to attend my grandchildren's activities, traveling, remodeling my home, and playing with my pug.
I originally graduated from LeMoyne College with a BA in business, but I decided that my true passion was in dentistry. I graduated from the Dental Hygiene program at MCC in May 2018 and have been working with Canandaigua Pediatric Dental ever since. I have always known that my true passion was working with children. I believe it is important to give children the best experience possible while helping them develop good habits that they will carry into adulthood. I enjoy creating relationships with my patients and their families and watching them grow throughout the years.
When I am not working, I enjoy cooking, decorating my house, traveling, and spending time with my four legged son, Marv (a German Shepherd), my fiancé, family, and friends.
I have been doing dental hygiene for over 30 years and have always enjoyed working with kids of all ages. We have a wonderful, family-oriented practice and our team members are attentive and respectful of each patient’s needs. Each person, and their family, is important to me, and I love helping them create healthy smiles! To do this, I clean my patient’s teeth, take x-rays and photos, and teach each person and their family about oral health.
Besides dental hygiene, I enjoy teaching third to fifth grade kids at my church, and I teach at a camp for adults with special needs. I love spending time with my family, including my husband and three grown kids. At home, I spend time cooking and baking, working in my yard, and playing with my cat.
My job involves keeping patients calm and comfortable, while assisting the dentist with procedures. On a day to day basis, you can find me accompanying the children to their chairs, passing instruments to the dentist, organizing and sprucing up the office. I work hard to create a fun and exciting dental home for our patients; you can often find me joking with the kids or telling them stories.
My husband, Tony, and I have three children - Arianna, Logan, and Kennedy. I love animals, so we have many pets including two huskies (Elsa, and Sky), a Golden-Doodle (Phoebe), and a cat (Mr. Peppersworth). In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, baking (and eating everything that I bake), doing crafts, and watching movies.
I used to be a patient here myself, so I truly appreciate how important having a good experience at the dentist is for a child. I really loved coming here and discovered that I wanted to pursue a career in dentistry. I have plans to go to school for dental hygiene in the near future. I love doing crafty things and hanging out with my kitty Mabelline, a Blue Point Himalayan.
FINANCIAL COORDINATOR & DENTAL ASSISTANT
As the daughter of a dentist, I have grown up in a dental office. I first assisted my dad with an emergency patient when I was seven years old. Now many years later, I have worked in nearly all aspects of dental and I love it. I am here to help our patient’s families navigate the difficult and unruly world of insurances and treatment plans. This practice is truly a unique place, with an amazing staff, easily one of my all-time favorite practices to work in.
When I am not working you may find me enjoying some rare downtime with my husband, his two daughters, our son, and our dogs Freddy and Layla.
