Meet the Team
We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
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
