Dental Office Manager
I enjoy dentistry because I love helping people. To be part of a Dental office that helps people that are in pain or who just wants to look better is a joy.
When I was growing up, we moved around a lot, but we lived mostly in Iowa and Southern Minnesota. I have 3 children who are my hobby, but when I am able to get away I like to cook, I also like to ride horses, go fishing, hiking and go to concerts of all kinds. My Dad grew up in Illinois so I am for all sports teams Illinois.
I was born and raised in Elkhart, Indiana and moved to Maricopa, Arizona in 2013 with my boyfriend and his family. My fiancé and I love spending time with our families, especially our nephews and nieces.
I attended dental assisting school at the American Institute of Dental Assisting in Mesa, Arizona. I went to dental assisting school with my fiancé, we both wanted to start a new career and thought dentistry was very interesting. I loved learning all assisting aspects of dental and am having a great time learning the front office aspect of dental.
During my free time, I enjoy going on hikes with my fiancé and exploring all the different things to do in Arizona. One of my Favorite things about Arizona is that it has all the climates I like from the extreme heat to the snow covered mountain tops where I can still enjoy the snowy weather but still come back down to the heat.
After moving to Arizona in 2003, I have learned to enjoy the hot but short summers and always look forward to the great weather the other half of the year brings. If I’m not cleaning teeth, I enjoy riding bicycles, going snowboarding and going to the lake. I have a large family who also lives here in Arizona – two of which are dental hygienists themselves and a girlfriend who is on her way to medical school.
Dental Hygiene Assistant
My name is Doris! I went to the Midwest Dental Assisting Program in Leawood, Kansas and have been assisting for the past three years!!
I love spending my time getting to know new patients and keeping up with patients that are seen on a 2-6 month basis!
I moved from Kansas City, Missouri in 2018 to get away from the snow, move closer to family, and enjoy the awesome weather Arizona has to offer!
Outside of work you can catch me hanging out with friends and family or at the gym!!
My name is Cindee, I have been a Dental Assistant since 2006. I have been with Maricopa Family Dentistry & Orthodontics & our sister office Delicate Dental since 2011. I LOVE being a Dental Assistant, I enjoy getting to know my patients and working with the dentist. As a child I grew up being afraid of the dentist, not knowing what was going on placed a fear in me, that I am sure a lot of people have. I am here to comfort and help educate the patient to make their dental visit as pleasant as it can be. So, when I see those smiling faces around town, I know that I had a hand in making that SMILE beautiful and healthy.
I was born in Ajo Arizona, raised in Pinetop Arizona and moved to Maricopa 2011. I have been happily married since 1998 and I have 2 children. We are a very active family, my children are active in school sports, we do off road desert quad racing, we enjoy boating at the lake, camping or just getting together with family. We participate in our community by helping out with school fund raising such as the Football and Baseball Booster Club and the local Community Trunk or Treat that is organized by my church.
Hi! My name is Jessica, I’m a dental assistant at Maricopa Family Dentistry & Orthodontics. I have been assisting for 8 years and I just LOVE it! All of our Doctors are amazing and that make assisting so much fun.
Outside of work I stay busy with my husband and daughter. We love spending time with family, we often go fishing, and every Sunday we are out watching my husband play baseball. I enjoy helping others and that’s why I know I’m in the right field, helping patients smile is the best reward overall.
My name is Adriana, I have been in the dental field since 2005 as a dental assistant. I completed my Certificate of Dental Assisting at Pima Medical Institute in Tucson, Arizona and a member of the American Dental Assistants Association. I have gained much knowledge over the years and continue to learn daily here at Smiles Lines Family Dentistry.
I grew up in the small town of Winslow, AZ (Yes, like the Eagles song). I loved playing any type of sport I could possibly play and was a part of many teams throughout my childhood. I moved to Ahwatukee to go to college and have been there ever since! I found my passion in life in Dental Hygiene school and love being an advocate for prevention! I enjoy travelling, good competition and doing anything outdoors. But of course my first love is oral health!
I have been a hygienist since 2013. I received my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene from Weber State University with honors from my program and cum laude overall from the university. I have a passion for whatever I do in the dental field. As a Hygienist, my goal is to give the best dental care and help my patients understand the importance of Oral Health. A patient’s experience in the dental office is just as important to me as it is to them, and that is why I strive every day to strengthen my skills and gain a stronger knowledge to better serve my patient’s needs.
I grew up in Cardston, Alberta Canada. I have been married since 2003 and currently have seven children. I love the Arizona sun and you can find me out on the lake Wakeboarding when I get chance. My family and I love spending time at the park shooting some hoops, riding skateboards and throwing the football around.
