I’ve been the Office Manager for Dr. Clayton for 23 years. I enjoy getting to know each person who comes to us for care and I think of many of them as friends. Working in a happy environment, with regular patients whom we get to know and build relationships with, is very fulfilling. I make sure that our office provides a pleasant experience for each patient, and am always here to ensure things go smoothly. Should a patient ever have a concern, I’ll fix it, immediately!
When I’m not at the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, four grown children and their spouses, and our 13 grandchildren, too! Holidays at our home are crazy, fun, and hectic. I enjoy all sports, and especially like playing golf and riding my bike.
I’ve been here at Pinnacle Peak Dentistry for 18 years, having started as a dental assistant and then transitioning to the front office 12 years ago. In all the time I’ve been here, I have to say that my happiest moments are hearing the thanks and seeing the smiles on patients who now have great oral health because of the care we’ve provided. We really make a difference for those in our community, and because we’re a family dentist, we tend to have long-term relationships with our patients, which means we become friends with them. I look forward to their visits and catching-up on the latest news about what’s been happening in their lives.
My two amazing daughters, with their various activities, keep me busy outside of work. In what free time I do have, I enjoy the outdoors, food, and antique shopping.
I joined our practice about three years ago and love the atmosphere here. It’s great to be working alongside people who are extremely nice and smart, both our team members and our patients! I look forward to coming to work in the morning, because I know each day will be interesting, with new people to meet and talk with, chats with established patients, and our staff working together to make sure every patient has a positive experience while here.
When I’m not at work, chances are you’ll find me spending with my family and friends. I love watching movies and going on shopping excursions, too.
I was born and raised in Wilmington, DE, where I worked as a hygienist for 10 years before moving here in 1995. One of the best decisions I ever made was coming to work for Dr. Clayton 16 years ago. This is an amazing and positive office, and everyone here is committed to providing only the best care for our patients. My days are spent working with patients, teaching them about good home oral hygiene practices, cleaning teeth, and taking X-rays. I’ve been seeing many of my patients since I started working here and they’ve become my friends. I love that.
When I’m not working, I’m involved in Akita Rescue and enjoying all the incredible outdoor activities Arizona offers.
I started as a temp for Dr. Clayton in 2002, the same year I was awarded my dental hygiene degree, and I’ve never left the practice! As a dental hygienist, my days are spent working one-on-one with our patients, cleaning their teeth, taking X-rays, and talking with them about the best strategies for keeping their mouth and teeth clean and healthy between their visits here. I help each person find the home dental solutions that are right for them and their situation, and also discuss nutrition and establishing good habits.
Away from work, I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible. I love hiking, weekends at the beach, sporting events, cooking, and spending time with my good friends and my dog, Ally.
I’ve been a dental assistant at our practice since 2000. As a true people person, I love engaging my patients in conversation and learning about their families and their interests. Each person has a unique story to tell and I enjoy hearing everything they share. I spend my days providing chairside assistance to our patients and Dr. Clayton during procedures. I talk with each patient about what the doctor is doing and how everything is proceeding, and I make sure that they’re comfortable and relaxed throughout the process.
When I’m not work, you will likely find me with my husband, chasing after our two young children, Tristan and Amelia.
I have practiced dental hygiene for 38 years and it’s been my good fortune to work with Dr. Clayton and the rest of the team for the last six years. I love the staff camaraderie and single focus of making sure that our patients feel welcome and appreciated while we help them with their oral healthcare needs. This is a unique practice in that regard, and our patients tell us, every day, how much they appreciate our efforts. My work involves spending time with my patients, taking X-rays, cleaning their teeth, and offering home dental education.
In addition to a rewarding job, I consider myself lucky to have a loving daughter and devoted husband who share my interests, which include crossword puzzles, fitness, humor, music, and movies.
I’ve worked at Pinnacle Peak Dentistry for three years, and have six additional years of dental assisting experience. I love being part of the family at our practice, where our team is close-knit and we’re all passionate about getting each patient to smile and keeping those smiles healthy! As a dental assistant, I work chairside as Dr. Clayton cares for our patients. I make sure he has everything he needs right at hand, but my attention is always on the person we’re treating, checking to make sure that they’re comfortable and explaining what the doctor is doing.
In my free time I love reading a good book, traveling, watching movies, and being outdoors. My husband and I also enjoy motorcycle rides together and taking weekend trips to the beach.
