I was born and raised in the Mini Cassia area, after graduation high school I attended Ricks College. It was there that I met my husband Curtiss. We are blessed with two daughters, one son and two wonderful son in-laws. In my free time I love the outdoors, my flower beds and garden, but most importantly I love spending time with my family. I am grateful for the small things in life because you never know when they will be gone.

I have been in the dental field for 16 years and love the opportunity to help bring smiles to kids that come into our office. I am also grateful to work with a great doctor and a wonderful team of co-workers.

I never dreamed of being a Dental Assistant but after 13 years of working at Kidds Dental I can say, I love my job. I have made the best of friends with my coworkers and our patients. I love seeing your children’s beautiful smiles and watching them grow up.

When not at work I love spending time with my amazing husband and our 7 children ranging in in age from 18 to 3. They keep us busy with dance, hockey and whatever else they can think of. They are amazing and I am so proud of them. Sometimes life takes an unexpected turn and you have no choice but to follow it and end up in the place you’re supposed to be.

I am married to my best friend Greg and we have 2 amazing children, Macey and Kaydn. When not working with our awesome patients here at Kidds, our family enjoys fishing, boating, kayaking, camping and being together. I also enjoy taking pictures, scrapbooking and watching my kids play sports.

I enjoy working with the patients here at Kidds Dental and also with my coworkers. They are awesome and consider them just like a big family. Most of all I love my job because I enjoy helping the kids have beautiful smiles.

Well I am the baby in the office. I finished dental assistant school in November of 2016.I absolutely love my job. Since I was a little girl I wanted to be a "dentist nurse". My little sister would let me pretend to fix her teeth and clean them so I owe so much to her for helping me to have all the practice before hand. I have lived in Heyburn, Idaho my whole life. I love playing tennis and soccer. I graduated from Minico High School. I love being around children and I think this is why this job has been the perfect match for me.

I have been working at Kidds Dental for 3 years. I attended Idaho State University for the Fundamentals of Dental Assisting program and became a certified dental assistant in 2015. I love working at Kidds Dental and have really enjoyed working with all my co-workers. They are all amazing people. I have especially enjoyed helping our young patients overcome their fear of the dentist and making it a positive experience for them.

I am currently the newest member of the team and I already love it. Dr. Johnson and his staff are all very nice and welcoming. I love the positive energy felt by everyone. I attended the College of Southern Idaho and became a certified dental assistant in 2015. After working for 2 years in general dentistry, I was ready for a change. Working with children has been a great experience and I have been able to continue growing in my dental assisting career.

In my spare time, you can find me studying or catching up on homework as I am still continuing my education. I also enjoy spending time with my loved ones.
