The best part of my job is getting to know patients, and helping them have a happy and memorable dental experience. I started working in the dental field in the early 90's and I love helping people change their smile. I really enjoy working with Dr. Aland. Not only is he a great dentist, but he is very genuine and caring with his patients, and he goes out of his way to make them comfortable.
I have a grown daughter and a three-year-old grandson, whom I adore. When I'm not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and taking my dog to the lake or river with my boyfriend.
Seeing the transformations our patients go through, as they learn about their oral health needs and begin to make changes in their home routines, makes every day something special for me. Working with people, helping them get onto the right path, and providing gentle care is critical to achieving and maintaining their overall wellbeing. There is a strong emphasis here on education, which is so important!
Outside of the office, I tend to keep busy with activities such as Crossfit and coaching cheerleading. My husband and I love getting away to go camping with our son and three dogs.
Bettering the lives of my patients by delivering the best cleaning and polishing, periodontal therapy, and providing education, is so fulfilling. Seeing their oral health improve and self-esteem grow as they begin to feel better about their appearance, makes me smile. What we do here makes a positive difference. The relationships we form with one another and the real friendships that develop, mean that each day I get to see and help people I care about.
Because I find my work so rewarding, I go home each night in a good mood. A native of Reno, my husband and I have been married for nine years. We have three beautiful daughters. I love being with my family and traveling.
Getting to know my patients and connecting with them is why I love what I do! I enjoy brainstorming with my patients to find ways each individual can implement great homecare. I get excited about the results and teaching my patients something they didn't know before.
Dr. Aland is a patient dentist with an attention to detail. He values each team member's strengths to give our patients the best comprehensive care. I have worked in the dental field since 2006, starting my career at the front desk. My experiences there led me to pursue becoming a hygienist, completing my education in 2010.
When I'm not at work, I enjoy anything outdoors, including running and playing with my dog, Berkley. I also enjoy traveling and experiencing a change of scenery.
Patient Care Coordinator
Greeting patients with a warm welcome and helping them feel comfortable with their experience is my top priority! As Patient Care Coordinator, I am responsible for making sure your visit to Aland Family Dentistry is 5-stars. I enjoy educating patients about their personal insurance program and helping them understand how to maximize those benefits for treatment.
I started in the dental field in 2017 as an assistant. Having a clincal background greatly helps when explaining treatment to a patient or scheduling their visit. I love working with Dr. Aland and the team at Aland Family Dentistry because he is a compassionate person. He takes time to train me and make sure I know the best systems for assisting our patients. He is gentle and caring.
When I'm not at the office, I spend time with my husband and dogs. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of a new baby this summer!
