Business Manager, RDH
I keep our office running smoothly! I coordinate financial plans for patients to help make dental care affordable, answer phones, welcome and dismiss patients, work on marketing, oversee staff, and help out anywhere and everywhere help is needed! I began my career as a dental assistant in 1994. After a few years I went back to school and was accepted to Northern Arizona University dental hygiene program from which I graduated in 2001. I transitioned into the office manager position for A Dentistry in 2014. I love working with people, from our wonderful patients to each member of our team. Our staff is great and all get along so well. The doctors are a pleasure to work for, and I look forward to coming to work every day.
I have been married for nearly 25 years and have eight wonderful nieces and nephews. I love any and all outdoor activities: hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, gardening, and just enjoying our beautiful outdoors!
Working at the front office, I'm one of the first people our patients meet when they come in for an appointment. I love working with people and have been working in the dental field for 17 years. I enjoy making our patients feel comfortable so they have a positive dental experience. The respect, kindness, and professionalism within this dental team makes working here a total joy.
I am from Susanville, CA, and have lived in Reno since 1989. My husband's name is Ron and we have one son and a daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren. In my free time I enjoy reading, autocross, traveling, and cruising.
My duties include comprehensive dental care for my patients, from scaling teeth to educating my patients on how to achieve and maintain overall health. I've worked in the dental field for 37 years and enjoy helping people feel better by improving their health and smiles. I have learned so many things from my patients who have helped me to become a better person and health care provider. Our team makes going to work fabulous every day. The attitude of any office always starts at the top; so, cheers to Dr. Amaral and Dr Nick!
I am originally from Los Angeles and have lived in Washoe Valley since 1994. It's a wonderful place to live and work. My husband, Ron, and I have been married for 35 years. Our daughter, Katie, and her husband, Nick, have a daughter Maggie May and son Nicholas. We are fortunate to have my mother, Dorothy, and my mother-in-law, Ethel, residing with us. For over 15 years I have worked on the Ricky Woodring Memorial Fund in memory of our son who passed away in a car accident at the age of 17. It's been an honor to help students in our community as a tribute to our son
I assist Dr. Amaral in all procedures to help create beautiful smiles and keep our patients happy and healthy! I I've been working in the dental field, doing precisely what I love, for almost 10 years. My attention to detail and love for patient health is undeniable. A delighted and self-confident patient is the greatest reward. Not only does our team have a high level of integrity, honesty, and loyalty, but everyone is outgoing and fun. I love working chairside with Dr. Amaral because she has talent at her fingertips and does amazing work!
I am a native of Northern California and Elko, NV, and have lived in Reno since 2001. I enjoy being with my dog, Dice, spending time outdoors, watching sports, and spending time with family and friends. I plan to attend dental school and one day, operate my own practice with a specialty in Forensic Dentistry.
