sda 225x300 - StaffI have worked in the dental field for 19 years. When I moved here from Orlando, Florida I wanted to change careers and luckily found the dental field. I worked as a R.D.A. for 10 years and still maintain my license. I transitioned to the front office and found my fondness for computer programs & dental insurance. Solana Family Dental has Dentrix which is the Porsche of dental programs and I have always wanted to learn this program. Last year, I decided to adopt a Shitzu and we named her Heidi. She loves to run like the wind. Solana Beach is a beautiful place to work & live.
