Clinical Manager/Dental Assistant
I have been a dental assistant since 2009 and recently joined Dr. Beaty's office. I am certified in coronal polishing and sealant placement. I really enjoy being part of the DB team where everyone is committed to patient care and comfort. In my spare time I love spending time outdoors and traveling with my family.
I became a Registered Dental Hygienist after graduating from William Rainey Harper College in 2016. I completed my Bachelor in Liberal Arts at University of Iowa in Communication Sciences and Disorders with a minor in Psychology. The field of dentistry runs in my family with my mom being a Registered Dental Hygienist and my grandmother a Dental Assistant. With the ever evolving world of dentistry, I strive to learn about new technology and current research to provide the best information and care to you for a healthy beautiful smile. I love to say "You're never fully dressed without a smile!" When I'm not in the office, I love spending time along the lake shore trail, exploring hidden gems in the city, exercising, and watching sports.
My love for dentistry has developed and grown since 2014 when I became a dental assistant. I have really come to appreciate the artistic aspect that comes into making people's smiles healthy, as well as, beautiful. I am a very hands-on person and this position really let's me exercise my artistic eye and showcase my skills. I recently joined DBDentistry in June of 2018, I'm excited to embark on this journey and form great relationships with our patients and staff. I am a huge "foodie" and a cat dad, so in my spare time, you'll find me trying new restaurants with my partner and spoiling my cat, "Onyx."
I graduated from Northwestern University Dental Hygiene School with honors in 1980. I finished my degree in Economics at Northwestern in 1989. I planned to pursue a corporate career, but I love clinical dental hygiene! Dental Hygienists are a unique part of the dental team because our focus is on prevention. Being able to help patients keep healthy smiles is important to me.
I am an avid scuba diver. My husband Bill and I walk to keep fit. We have two Norwegian Forest Cats, Hazel and Millie.
