We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.
We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I have been in the dental field since 2001, working all aspects of the front office. Dr. Dorantes was one of the first doctors I worked for and we remained friends over the years so I was delighted to accept a position as his Office Manager back in 2012. I promise to answer any questions you may have with regard to your treatment plan, billing, or insurance to the best of my ability — with a smile! One of my greatest joys in life comes from helping others and making sure patients’ visits are a little less stressful each time they come. I love witnessing an apprehensive patient leave with a big smile and less fear because of their experience. Here at Lakeview Smiles, we’re truly a family. We are all very professional, but know how to have fun, too!
At home, I have two sons: Kaeden and Kolton. Spending time with them, my family, and my friends is most important, but I also love small adventures, taking photos and assisting with wedding planning. Oh! And I am a “12” (Go Hawks!)
Insurance Coordinator/ Dental Assistant
Schedule Coordinator/ Dental Assistant
My dental career began in 2014 when I graduated from Pima Medical Institute as a registered Dental Assistant. I moved to the front staff shortly after as the need for Spanish-speaking front office coordinator arose, which was a wonderful opportunity as my passion for patient care and attention is the reason why I pursued a dental career. (In reality Jennifer stole me! Haha)
As your patient coordinator I will assist you in scheduling and maintaining your regular check-up and cleanings, explain and help you understand your treatment needs and the financial aspect of it, and most importantly address any questions or concerns you may have in your journey to a healthy smile!
In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling, gaming and being active in my local church.
Lead Dental Assistant
I was introduced into the dental field in 2002 when I was offered a great opportunity to learn how to be an assistant at a pediatric dental office. Due to my love for children, I accepted! I like to help nervous patients by educating them and making them feel comfortable so they can receive the dental care they need for ideal oral health. It’s so much fun coming to work each day at Lakeview Smiles; it’s like leaving one family to go to another!
I am a proud mother of three teenagers, who are the loves of my life. I enjoy playing tennis in the summer and restore vintage furniture in my free time. I also think it’s very important to help others in need so I serve the community as much as I can.
I began working in dentistry as an assistant in 1996 and pursued an education in dental hygiene. I received my degree in 2002. The one-on-one interactions I have with patients are the highlight of my day. I love making them feel comfortable and at ease during their hygiene appointments, while providing thorough yet gentle and compassionate care. I feel so at home with this team in our wonderful office environment. We all share the same goal of providing excellent patient care.
I feel so lucky to be married to a wonderful man and have two young daughters I love so much. My free time is spent traveling, hiking, going wine tasting, and spending quality time with my family.
