Owner and Registered Dental Hygienist
I am proud of Pearly Whites Dental Office: I started the collaborative practice in 2001 and am honored to be working with two full-time, exceptional collaborating dentists and an office team of 15 remarkable people. I manage our practice, handle and solve the day-to-day issues, and ensure that every patient receives the highest quality of clinical and customer care. Together, we’re committed to helping the Rio Rancho, Albuquerque, and Bernalillo communities achieve beautifully healthy smiles!
My personal world centers on my two grown daughters, and grandsons. I enjoy traveling, sewing, and spending time with loved ones.
I enjoy the diversity of my days: Our patients bring a lot of positive energy to Pearly Whites and our doctors and team respond to that. I love hearing patients laughing with our team, sharing stories, and building relationships. I ensure our office and support staff run smoothly. In addition to overseeing our dental assistants, I also handle inventory, work with vendors and insurance companies, and plan events. I make sure the office is clean and orderly, and that we run on time.
Outside the office, I love traveling, spending time with my family and friends, and enjoying many outdoor activities.

It’s amazing to see how a healthier, more attractive smile transforms a person’s life. Watching a patient achieve the great smile they’ve always wanted, and finish treatment thrilled with the results, always makes me smile. I coordinate treatment plans with our patients and work with each to develop a financial agreement that fits with the family’s budget. I also schedule visits.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy reading, hiking, going to the movies, and spending time with my wonderful family.

We serve a wonderful community, and I’m glad to help friends and neighbors achieve their smile goals. At Pearly Whites, everything we do is focused on our patients: Their comfort, oral health needs, and smile desires are important to all of us! I provide gentle dental cleanings, screen patients for dental disease and oral cancer, and teach them how to keep their mouth clean and smile healthy and bright.
When I’m not caring for patients, I enjoy cooking, reading, traveling, and spending time with my family, especially my spouse and son.

Our patients are the best people. As a family-oriented dental practice, we care for everyone from toddlers through great-grandparents, and help each person attain the healthy smile they deserve. I love providing patient care, and tailoring each visit to my patient’s specific needs and concerns. While I offer preventive care, including cleanings, I teach people about the importance of oral health. I love to see someone take my teachings to heart and improve their home care!
My free time is filled with many outdoor activities, especially camping, and various craft projects. I love time with my family and cheering for the Denver Broncos.
