I started with Dr. DiStefano’s office in 2012, but have over 20 years experience in the Dental Profession and 12 of those were in sunny California. I started off in the dental field working in the back office/chairside  for 4 years and have since moved to the front office to work with the insurance, accounts, scheduling and all logistics to properly run a dental office. I am looking forward to meeting new patients and working with existing patients in our office. When I am not at work , I enjoy outdoor activities, traveling, movies, volunteering at animal shelters and getting together with family and friends!
