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.

Bio to come…
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.
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!
