Office Manager, Patient Care
Patient care is my focus. I explain treatment plans and insurance plans, answer phones, manage the schedule, and manage claims and accounts. My favorite part of my job is helping patients understand the treatment that has been recommended for them and how their insurance can be utilized to maximize their benefits. Dr. Aro is one of the best dentists that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. His passion for dentistry, innovation, and his ability to think outside of the box is what makes this office an exciting place to work. Our staff is made up of professionals who strive to give the best patient care possible.
I have been married for 32 years. My husband and I have a 14-year-old daughter and a Chow Chow. I am originally from the San Francisco Bay area, and my family and I moved back from Las Vegas to the Central Coast in 2010. I am passionate about reading and love what I do.
Registered Dental Assistant
I work with Dr. Aro during the treatment of our patients, make temporary crowns, order supplies, sterilize equipment, and set up rooms. Helping the patient feel comfortable is my favorite part of my job. I like that Dr. Aro is gentle with his patients, because it makes my job that much easier! He genuinely cares about the patient and how they feel. As a team, we all work together to provide the best possible care!
I have lived in Santa Maria my entire life. I have two children: a 19-year-old daughter and a 13-year-old son. I love to go hiking and enjoy spending my time just relaxing at home on the weekends.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Maintaining my patients’ oral health is at the forefront of what I do every day. Whether it is through preventive cleanings and exams or home-care education, I want my patients to experience the benefits of a healthy mouth. My favorite part of my job is giving someone the confidence to smile again. As a team here at Aro Dental, we all get along great, and there's a real sense of teamwork and comradery amongst us. Each team member has an important role and executes it well.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending my free time with my beautiful family which includes my English bulldog, Frank. I also enjoy cooking and reading about my profession in dental hygiene magazines that I receive on a monthly basis.
