I began a career in dentistry in 1994 after attending Apollo College Dental Assisting program and started as an Orthodontic Assistant, then briefly became Co-owner and Manager of a local dental practice. I also have a passion for skincare and maintain my license in Aesthetics. I grew up in San Jose, CA with my mother and spent many summers in AZ to visit with my father on the Indian Reservation. I eventually moved back to Arizona after high school and have raised my family here. When I'm not marketing I'm enjoying family gatherings, revamping recycled antiques, and practicing yoga.
I began my career in dentistry in 2011 just outside of Washington D.C. where I was raised. In 2019, my husband and I moved away from the politics of DC to the sunshine state of Arizona. When not in the dental office you can find me on the ice (ice hockey coach and past national player). on the rocks (past sponsored rock climber), or in nature rescuing wildlife as I am passionate volunteer for Liberty Wildlife here in Phoenix. Love spending time outdoors and am always up for what the wild world has to offer!
I am currently working as a dental assistant with the hopes of becoming a dentist. My interest in dentistry sparked in college and I have been working towards that goal ever since. I also attended the American Institute of Dental Assisting to become certified, and I have been fortunate to gain more hands-on experience and knowledge of the dental field during my time here. As I continue my dental journey and apply to dental school, my goal is to keep learning and improving myself in the profession. In my spare time, I enjoy photography, reading, hiking, and spending time with family and friends.
I began my career in dentistry right out of high school in 1998 as a Dental Assistant. I became a Registered Dental Hygienist after attending El Paso Community College and received my Bachelor of Science in Information Technology from Columbia University. I also hold a certification in anesthesia and laser. After moving here from El Paso Texas for work, I knew this would be my forever home. When I'm not caring for my patients, you will find me diligently reading toward a goal of 40 books a year as well as being a soccer and theater mom. I also enjoy Broadway shows and tacos.
I began my dental career in 1975, received my Assisting Certification at Maricopa Tech Community College and attended Phoenix College for general studies. When I was eight years old my fathers’ work transferred the family to Arizona from Texas. When I'm not assisting the doctor, I enjoy an active lifestyle with running, hiking, reading and going to the gym along with taking cruises and traveling to Rocky Point.
I love to see people smile that's why dentistry has been a life long career. I'm originally from California but like cactus so Arizona was the obvious choice. My favorite thing to do is try new local restaurants with my teenage daughters and tube down the salt river.
Hi, my name is Whitney and I am not only a local Arizonan but also an Navajo Native American. Apart from spending time with my husband and three dogs, I enjoy sports, crafting, sewing, cooking and gardening. We currently don’t have any kids but have plans for some in the future! Lastly, I love to escape the Phoenix heat sometimes and spend some time at my families cabin in Munds Park to go hiking, trail riding and relaxing.
My dental adventure began 25 years ago after I graduated as dental assistant in Gilroy California. After 14 years of being an assistant I transitioned to the front office where I still enjoy the “magic” of seeing the transformation of peoples smiles. Outside of my dental family I have two beautiful children whom are the best thing that ever happened to me. I enjoy every stage of their wonderful life. I like long walks, a little running here and there, but I especially enjoy dancing! Love meeting new people and learning new things. I look forward to all the great things in mine and my children’s life that are still to come!
Born and raised in Southern Italy (Sicily), I have lived in the USA for 23 years with my lovely husband, Bery, and my son, Umberto, who I’m enjoying fully before he leaves for college. I love cooking traditional Sicilian recipes and spending time entertaining family and friends. In my free time, I volunteer for many organizations such as St. Vincent De Paul; where I help the underprivileged and homeless change their lives with their dental needs.
Dental Hygiene is my world. I love caring for patients and I’m very passionate about their dental health. As a compassionate and caring person, my goal every day is to create a fun and enjoyable environment for patients who have reservations about spending time in the dental chair. I have been in the dental field for over 15 years. I am a graduate of ASU with a Bachelor’s both in Chemistry and Biology. I also completed my Dental Hygiene program at NAU. Currently, I’m working on my Master’s in Dental Hygiene.
The words that I live by are:
“Make people feel better about themselves and you will be a happier a better person”
I started down the dental path 14 years ago. After many training classes and certifications I landed a lead surgical assistant position with an Oral Surgeon. I am AAOMS Certified in Anesthesia and Oral Surgery. I am cross trained and love working up front seeing our beautiful Patients! As the Insurance Coordinator at Anantuni family dental, I am here to answer all your dental insurance & benefit questions. When Im not spreading love around the office you will find me cooking delicious Italian meals for my family of 6, spending time in my Garden, watching The Office or trying out new restaurants with my best friend, my husband.
After a few years as General Manager for an ice rink here in the valley, I found myself in the dental field. I was fortunate to start my dental management career with a cosmetic restoration and implant specialist. It gave me a chance to experience a wide range of dental treatment and concerns. I am extremely fascinated by the human body . I absolutely love everything I have learned over the past few years. I am always happy to help our patients better understand their dental treatment and how to best utilize their dental benefits. I am a huge advocate for technology and also pleased to help integrate it in our office. When I am not at the office, you can find me at one of the valley’s many ice rinks with my son. My husband and I spend most of our family time on trips to watch our son play both ice and roller hockey. We are also active in both the Buddhist and Veteran communities in Arizona
Hello my name is Kathy. I've been in the dental field since 2001. I started my career taking evening classes while finishing my Senior year in High School. After graduation I took additional training at Sacramento City College, to obtain an RDA license in California.
I am fairly new to Arizona, I enjoy spending time exploring new areas in Arizona with my husband cycling on the weekends, and hanging out with our fur baby.
