Joanna - Practice Manager
Joanna is originally from the Pacific Northwest and traded the rain for sunshine almost 10 years ago.
Joanna has worked in the dental field for over 20 years and loves working in Pediatric Dentistry.
“Pediatric dental is hands down one of my favorite areas of dental. Kids are awesome! When a child
walks in and brings you a picture they drew for you, or are excited to tell you about their day at school
or bring their favorite toy just so they can show you, you can’t help not be in a good mood. We’re
creating positive experiences for these kids so when they are adults, they will have healthy hygiene
habits and not be weighed down with the stigma that going to the dentist is a bad thing”.
In her spare time Joanna enjoys spending time with her spouse and their two and half year old daughter
as well as their two naughty dogs. She also enjoys gardening, painting, bike riding, spending time at
the beach and family vacations.
