I'm a very caring and friendly person who enjoys working in an affirmative, service-oriented position. As Dr. Aland's dental assistant I work alongside him during our patients' dental procedures. This includes cleanings and treatments. It is very important to me to build relationships with patients and make them feel comfortable in the dental atmosphere. I want each patient to look forward to coming to our office as much as I do! In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and dog, Coco. They are my everything!
I've worked in the dental field since the beginning of 2015, and I love it! I enjoy talking with patients and discovering their life stories. I love seeing their satisfaction with their smile when we've completed treatment. Dr. Aland is an awesome dentist, and I've learned so much from him as I prepare for dental school. He is knowledgable in the field of dentistry, and has an easy-going personality that is enjoyable to be around.
Outside of work, I love to travel with my beautiful wife and explore new places . We spoil our dog Charlie and treat him as our child. I love being outdoors, especially fly fishing. There is nothing more peaceful than being on the river. I received a Bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University -- Idaho, and I have recently been accepted to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine.
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.
I am excited to be a part of the Aland Family Dentistry team! I have been a hygienist for over 10 years, and my goal is to give each one of my patients a wonderful experience when they come for dental hygiene care. I love Northern Nevada and anything outdoors. When I am not in the office, I enjoy skiing, hiking, kayaking and snowshoeing.
Whether I am handling a claim with an insurance company or discussing treatment with a patient, I enjoy each task I am presented with because I love what I do! I feel so blessed to be surrounded by great patients and a wonderful, caring staff. Dr. Aland does exceptional work, and the environment of the office is always welcoming and fun.
After working in the dental field for 14 years as an assistant, I decided to move to the administrative side of dentistry and absolutely love it. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband Christopher and our four children. Our family keeps pretty busy running around to various activities and events. When I have spare time, I enjoy reading, going to movies and watching football with friends. Go Jets!!!

I love working with the best dental team and meeting new, friendly patients every day. Dr. Aland is a fun and caring person, and makes it easy for me to do my job well.
When I'm not assisting patients at Aland Family Dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my family -- my husband, and my puppy, Nala. They are my best friends, and we enjoy being together, whether it's watching Netflix, riding our bicycles or being outside in the fresh air!
