What you love about your position: I love getting to know each and every one of our patients. Being next to them during treatment and knowing personal things about them makes them feel more comfortable. Patients and I talk about their hobbies, their work, families, travel, and all sorts of things. It really creates a personal level of care for both of us. As well as finding out what they love and maybe don’t love about their smile, what their needs are and what is important to them.

Education: Allan Hancock College of Dental Assisting
What you love about your position: The start of my journey in the industry began in 2005 upon graduation and licensure. I was fortunate early on in my career to find out what type of Dental Office I belong in; an office that cares truly for the patient and their needs. I love being the funny familiar face all patients remember. I love when patients come and look for me in the office just to give me a hard time or say hello- It’s the best part of my day. I have been a chairside dental assistant since the beginning. However, in the last few years I wanted to know more about a dental office. I was fortunate in my early years to gain knowledge from a previous co-worker in California who taught me the ins and outs of dental insurance and front office. In the last two years I have increased my knowledge so much and am so thankful for Dr. Crumpton and my team to help me gain knowledge to apply to all of our patients. I could seriously go on and on… Maybe, I’ll get my own blog page and all patients can read! Haha!
What you do for fun/fun facts: Growing up in California I love camping at the beach or the desert. My heart for the desert grew and I began racing off-road trucks in the California and Mexican desert. I grew up in a heavily agriculture influenced area where I was able to learn and play with horses and cattle from a young age. In the most recent years my love for horses Reined Cow Horses and Cutting Horses grew. I met my husband Jared through the Cutting Horse shows; we love to go to horse shows and keep up with the industry. We live at a large horse breeding ranch where my husband works; and I am fortunate to play with the enormous amounts of baby horses we have yearly in my time away from the office. I love photography, crafting, shopping (outside my budget mostly), home improvement and I spend way too much time practicing my sniper skills on a video game. Ask my husband… Haha
