I am passionate about children and love to see the wonder in their eyes when they learn something new or accomplish a different task. I have worked in several different aspects in the dental field for many years and have had the privilege of working all over the United States. I currently hold 2 radiology licenses, I am CPR and AED certified and I have an Early Childhood Education. I continue to build on my education by taking many college courses. Working with children here at SmileZ touches my heart; to encourage, support and guide them through a dental procedure or dental hygiene techniques successfully is a fabulous feeling.
I am a native New Yorker with a wonderful husband and a large family that is almost grown now. For a few years I worked in the field of education teaching toddlers, pre-school and special needs children. I found it very rewarding, however, the lure of dentistry was there and I decided to return. In my “spare” time, I kayak, garden, cook and teach 1st grade Sunday school. I feel very privileged to work with your children, Dr. Amante and the great team here at SmileZ. How wonderful to have the good fortune to be able to combine my love of two careers and to love what I do!
