I joined Preston Commons Dental Care in 2012, having started in the field in 1976. We have a great staff and doctor, and all of us work well together to ensure our patients receive the best dental care possible.
I work closely with my patients to improve and maintain their oral health. I clean teeth, examine the mouth for signs of oral disease, take dental X-rays, and place sealants and apply fluoride. I spend a lot of time with patients to teach them about their unique dental health concerns and how to brush and floss properly, as well as develop healthier habits.
Outside the office, I’m active in the Dallas Dental Hygienists’ Society and a delegate to the Texas Dental Hygienists’ Association. I also volunteer for Mark Twain Elementary fluoride varnish day, prepare food for The Stewpot, and serve meals for the homeless.
I have two married daughters. The oldest lives in Dallas and the other in Tulsa. I’m expecting my first grandchild in May 2018! I enjoy time at the Jewish Community Center, especially the yoga and spin classes, and have just learned to play mahjong. It’s fun to challenge my brain in a new way.
