Becky – Registered Dental Hygienist

sample-page-2-4

Initially a patient of this office since the age of 15, I decided to attend dental hygiene school. I attended Rio Salado Hygiene School for my Associate of Applied Science degree and then received my Bachelors of Science degree in dental hygiene from Northern Arizona University.

I have been working in the dental field for the past 13 years and enjoy it very much. I am passionate about whole body health and nutrition, and I hope to pass on that passion to my patients as well.

I completed my certification to teach yoga in 2011 since I love it so much and it has helped me to maintain my posture in this career. My husband and I have been married for 10 years now, and we have two beautiful children and the best dog in the world!

 

Amanda- Registered Dental Hygienist

sample-page-2-5I have been in dentistry all my life. My mom practically raised my sister and me in a dental office. We helped file charts, clean instruments, so it’s to no surprise we are now Hygienists. I graduated from Rio Salado Hygiene School with an Associates in Applied Sciences Degree and have been loving every minute I get to make a difference in my patients lives.

On my spare time I enjoy being outdoors, hiking, camping and spending time with my fiance, Josh and our 2 “fur babies”, Scarlet and B-Mo.
I have been welcomed with open arms (and mouths), by the entire team and all the wonderful patients here at AZ Cosmetic and Family Dentistry. I look forward to meeting everyone as the year goes on.

 

Tisha – Practice Administrator

I have worked in the dental field for the last 18 years. At first, I didn’t realize that I would enjoy dentistry so much. My senior year of high school, I went to school in the mornings and worked for a dentist in the afternoons. Initially, I answered phones and filed paperwork for the office. Then one day the dental assistant needed a little help in the back, so I was asked if I would like to assist her. I’m always up for learning something new, so I said yes. Little did I know how that decision would shape the next 18 years of my life.

Over these years, I’ve come to realize how much a person’s smile affects their entire life. Helping someone gain enough confidence to look another person in the eye and smile is one of the best feelings. I have worked in this office since 2000. I feel very blessed to be working with such a talented and caring group of people. In this office, we are family, and we welcome all of our patients as extended family.

Crystal – Chairside Assistant

I am a true Arizona girl, born and raised right here. Upon graduating from Apollo College with my certificate in Dental Assisting, I became a full-time employee here, where I have stayed for the last 9 years. This office is also where I met and fell in love with my husband. I love my job, and I am very passionate about helping our patients have the best experience in our office.

Anne- Insurance Coordinator

My journey in my dental career started more out of a necessity than desire.  Urgency to establish a regular income to move out of my parents’ home was the driving force after graduating from college.  I was hired as a dental receptionist in the mid 90’s back in my home town, Sweet Home Chicago!  This experience opened my eyes and my heart to an industry that I never thought I would ever become excited about.

As I grew into this profession but grew out of that first practice that hired me, I found other avenues of income.  The passion I had developed for the dental field drew me back.  I made a home at a new dental practice where I was able to develop and expand my knowledge and desire to help patients with their oral health and also change their lives through various types of dentistry.
Upon moving to Arizona, I wasn’t sure if my “fire” was strong enough to continue my career in dentistry, but here I am.  Twenty plus years later, my passion is stronger now than ever.  I’ve found a new home, and it is my personal mission to be a servant leader to you and our dental family!

Leti- Chairside Assistant

Greetings!  I am one of the Chairside Dental Assistants here.  I have worked in the dental field for over 6 years now.  They say time flies when you’re having fun and I definitely have a lot of fun working in the dental field.

After enjoying many years as a stay at home mom I chose to go back to school to further my education and decided on dental assisting.  I was hired at my externship placement where I stayed for many years and is also where I met Dr. Narra.  My husband and I have been together for over 16 years and have four wonderful kids (Anthony, Jazzlyn, Mia, and Jacob) which keeps me running in different directions at all times.

Kristine- Hygiene Coordinator

I joined the AZ Cosmetic and Family Dentistry team back in July and have been loving every minute of this wonderful group of women! I worked in the dental field prior to hotel management but at last I have come home. This year has been one for the books, I was blessed with being able to go on a cruise this year to one of the prettiest places North America has to offer, Alaska. Talk about sights, trying to explain its beauty will not do it justice. I will also be celebrating my 1 year wedding anniversary to my best friend and husband at the end of November! And my family will be adding a new addition at the beginning of 2016 with a niece or nephew. I am excited to see what adventures lie in 2016 and hopefully will be able to share some with you all!

I look forward to meeting each and everyone of our wonderful patients . I hope you have a safe and fantastic holiday season and wish the best for you in the new year!!! Thank you Dr. Narra and team for everything, and I can’t wait to see what we bring to the table in 2016!
