Since her oldest daughter is in college, she appreciates the times they can come back together as a family for vacations and holidays. She chose to work in dentistry because she always wanted to work in health care and has been in the practice for 18 years. She loves running into patients in town and getting a chance to catch up. She is one of Dr. Burnham’s surgical assistants and will always put you at ease whether you are coming for your first appointment or scheduled for periodontal surgery.
