I have been working in our office since 2004, and I have over 12 years of experience in dental assisting. I’m a graduate of Santa Fe Community College. I love being alongside Dr. Rogoff and Dr. Simon to provide the best dental care to our patients, who are such a large part of my life. I’m married with two kids and together we enjoy life’s simplest things.

I help coordinate our patients’ visits so that things run smoothly. I have a B.A. from the American University in Paris. When I’m not in the office, I love to dance, hike, bike, snow ski, scuba dive and travel.

I graduated High School in 2005 and have been working as a Dental Assistant here in this office since 2008. I am certified in taking digital X-rays. I enjoy many aspects of Rogoff Dental Group, such as being chairside with our Doctors, completing in-office Lab work, the Art of Dentistry, and my relationships with our patients. When I am not at the office, I enjoy relaxing, being with great company and foremost, spending time with my vibrant daughter.

For over twenty plus years I have had the privilege of being a part of our practice. I often am the first to have the opportunity to meet our clients during their initial phone call. The relationships that we have developed over the years are an integral part of meeting our goal of dental wellness, and beyond. I find great pleasure in playing a supporting role in creating dental health goals through communication and the co-discovery process our patients experience with Dr. Rogoff, Dr. Simon, hygienists and assistants.

…the absolute joy I experience each day in my personal world comes from a life shared with my family who all exude a love for life. We spend our best times together supporting each other’s passions.
