Sammy, CDA, Dental Assistant
Certified: Dental Assistant, Charter College
Member: American Association of Dental Assistants
Samantha was deathly afraid of dentists as a child and had poor oral hygiene as a result. It became important to her to learn about oral health and teach her family and loved ones how to practice better oral hygiene – all the things she wished someone would have taught her when she was growing up. She loves helping people overcome their fears and making them feel comfortable when they visit. Outside of work, Sammy enjoys spending quality time with her family and doing crafts that involve painting and art. Family is everything to her.
