I’ve been working at Fox Gentle Dentistry since April of 2003. I started out as a Process Coordinator while in Dental Assisting school and worked as an Assistant while in Dental Hygiene school. I have been working as a Dental Hygienist since July 2007 and enjoy caring for patients and educating them on their oral health.
I married my husband, Brandon, in September 2008 and we welcomed our first son, Liam, in October 2010. Our daughter, Olivia, was born in July 2013. I am enjoying being a Mom and seeing them grow and learn. In my spare time I love spending time with my family, reading, biking and simply being outdoors.
My family and I moved to America from our home country, Romania in 2005. Since then, we have been living in Brookfield, Wisconsin. I graduated from the Dental Assisting program at MATC. During my schooling, I interned at Fox Gentle Dentistry. In January 2008, after graduating first in my class, I was invited to join this outstanding office, who are like my second family.
I was really impressed by the exceptional care, compassion, and understanding for their patients, along with the high-quality of work and the advanced techonology they have and use. Their willingness to meet their patient's satisfaction along with the warm, nice and friendly environment, made FGD the perfect fit for me.
When I'm not working, I like spending time with my husband and our beautiful and joyful daughter, reading, knitting, cooking, and crocheting. I enjoy making my own clothes and I am an accomplished seamstress and do all sorts of alterations for my friends and neighbors.
