For 25 years I've reassured dental patients who have sought sedation dentistry by holding their hands while they gently fall asleep. For many, sedation dentistry allows them to get the smile they deserve in just one visit. The best part of my job is seeing the happiness that radiates from patients when we perfect their smile. I'm proud that Dr. Buzza and our team consistently meets and exceeds the expectations of our patients. When I'm not caring for my patients, I love to spend time with my friends and family at our summer home on Clear Lake.
As a recent graduate of the Santa Rosa Junior College Dental Assisting Program, I had the opportunity to intern in several dental practices. I have always had the desire to work in the dental field, but it was also important to me that I work in a great environment. Dr. Buzza made me feel at home and I see that same approach with everyone that walks through our door. I'm proud to be on this team! When I'm home, I love spending time with my husband and three wonderful children, Bailey, Chloe, and Wyatt. I enjoy working out, running, playing softball, camping, and anything outdoors.
First, I was a patient at Dr. Buzza's office. My family started coming here in 1996 and we immediately felt confident that we were receiving superior dentistry and a superior amount of compassion. When I chose a career in dental hygiene, I hoped to work at an office with the same quality of care. I'm very proud and fortunate to be a part of Dr. Buzza's team. I strive to offer personalized care in a warm family environment. When I'm not working, I enjoy the outdoors. I love cycling, backpacking, camping, and travel. Although I was born and raised here in Santa Rosa, I've traveled all over the world. And every time I return home, I'm even more grateful to be able to live and work in such a beautiful part of the world.
Before joining Dr. Buzza's team in 1994, I graduated from the University of California San Francisco Dental Hygiene program in 1990. To provide the highest level of care for all our dental office patients, I'm soft tissue laser certified and regularly take advanced courses to keep up on the latest dental techniques and therapies. I'm also an instructor at Santa Rosa Junior College where I teach clinical Dental Hygiene. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend Keith, and my dog Josie. I play competitive soccer and enjoy golf, camping, and travel.
