Registered Dental Hygienist

I make sure our patients leave our office without deposits on their teeth that will harm both teeth and gums. I also equip patients with the knowledge of how to keep their smiles healthy. It’s important to me to listen to our patients’ concerns so they may be properly addressed, but I also like to hear about their experiences, interests, and families. Happy patients make me happy, and seeing their smiles every day brings joy to my life! I love that Dr. Kerata is a caring, compassionate dentist who takes the time to provide quality patient care. All of us here work together with her to benefit our patients’ health.

My husband and I have been blessed with three children and two adorable grandchilden. I love to vacation with my family and I take lots of photos. I enjoy scrapbooking and now love to create my books on the computer.


Registered Dental Hygienist

My job is to provide my patients with a thorough cleaning and educate them on their oral health. I teach my patients different ways to help keep their teeth and gums healthy so they can maintain their beautiful smile for years to come. I was very fortunate to join Dr. Kerata’s team after graduating from hygiene school. Since then, I’ve loved getting to know my patients. Our team is like a big family, and we’re all here to help each other out whenever needed.

I am an easygoing person who is grounded by my faith. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family, but I also enjoy going on vacation, being outdoors, my hobby of photography, and my passion for music!


Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been in the dental field for 20+ years. I began as a dental assistant which gave me a lot of hands on work with the dentist, I spent some time at the front desk so I understand the business side of the office; however, my most fulfilling position has been that of a dental hygienist.  I received my license in 2002 and have been helping patients be the best they can be ever since. I am a firm believer that "small changes make big outcomes".  My daily goal is to treat others as I would like to be treated.  

Outside of the office, I enjoy bike riding, hanging with my two Shih-Tzu's, and just living in the moment and trying to always be aware of blessing surrounding me.  My favorite Bible verse is Psalm 46:10 which reads:  “Be still and know that I am God”.


Business Manager/Dental Assistant

our team

As a dental assistant, I personally feel I have two main duties. The first is to make sure that all procedures run as smoothly as possible. The second responsibility I have is to the patient. I want to make sure that every patient, regardless of procedure, leaves his or her appointment having had a good experience. It is an unwritten rule of mine to show comfort, compassion, and kindness to each and every person that I meet. I love working with Dr. Kerata because she is a woman of faith. She has a kind heart and listens to our patients’ needs. I am very proud to be a part of her team.

When I’m not in the office, I have a soft spot for animals and a great deal of passion for exercise.
