I graduated as a dental hygienist in 1986 and joined Dr Allen’s team in 2004. I love being a hygienist as much today as the day I started. I enjoy working with people and getting to know them. I especially enjoy working with children and teaching them how to take care of their teeth. Watching them grow up over the years is a rewarding part of my job. Patients become friends that last a lifetime. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son. I also enjoy reading, shopping, baking, walking, Zumba, and being with family and friends.
I am a dental hygienist and have been part of Dr. Allen's team since 2005. I graduated with an Associate's degree in Dental Hygiene from Delta College. My favorite part of my job is working with such a wonderful team and helping patients maintain their beautiful smiles. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband, sons, and our two dogs.
As an office administrator, I handle scheduling appointments, financial concerns, and dental insurance benefits. I really enjoy my position because I am able to talk with so many wonderful people everyday. I have been a part of Dr. Allen's team for over 10 years. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter and our new puppy, Sami. I also stay busy riding and training horses.
As an Office Administrator, I am very excited to see our patients walk in the door everyday. I love my career because I enjoy helping each patient achieve the beautiful smile they want. I am also a Dental Assistant so I love teaching patients how to both attain and maintain a healthy smile. I enjoy working for Dr. Allen because everyone is friendly and we have the same goal of helping our patients. In my free time I love being with my son, and enjoying life with him and the rest of my family and friends.

After a few years away, I am very happy to be back at Dr. Allen's office. I love being a Dental Assistant, and have over 20 years of experience.
