I have been a Dental Assistant for over 15 years, assisting Dr. Hess with treatment and patient care for 14 years. I love working with children and taking time with each patient to ensure a comfortable and positive experience, and of course, decorating the office for monthly holidays. On my free time you can find me spending time with my two sons and husband at the baseball and softball fields. I also love going to watch movies and bowling.


I’ve worked as a Dental assistant for Dr. Hess for a total of 7 years now.  I love working with children and helping them to have an easy and comfortable visit to the dentist. Traveling and music are my number one passions in life. I also enjoy time with my family on the weekends.
