Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself—where are you from? What hobbies do you enjoy?
A: I grew up in Eagar, AZ. I got my dental assisting degree from White Mountain School of Dental Assisting in Linden, AZ. As for hobbies, I love crafting, and Pinterest definitely inspires me!
Q: Did you always want to work in the dental industry? How did you end up at Phoenix Endo?
A: My mother worked in a dental office when I was growing up, so I guess I followed in her footsteps. Since I’ve worked in the endodontic industry for so long, I looked for an office closer to home, and fortunately, Phoenix Endo was looking for a dental assistant.
Q: What is your favorite part of working at Phoenix Endo?
A: I love helping patients have a comfortable and enjoyable experience during a root canal. It gives me great satisfaction to disprove the bad reputation that root canals have been given. Since they relieve the patient of pain, root canals shouldn’t be thought of negatively.
Q: What do you admire most about Dr. Wood?
A: Dr. Wood has a huge wealth of knowledge, and she does a great job informing patients about their treatment.
Q: What do you admire most about Dr. Allen?
A: Dr. Allen is so generous and truly cares for her patients and those in need. She spends tireless hours in and out of the office providing treatment to people.
Q: What are the most rewarding aspects of working at Phoenix Endo?
A: We have great doctors and a great team! We all work very hard to make sure that our patients have a great experience, despite the fact that they are having root canal treatment.
