No BS!

No Bad Stuff of course…what were you thinking??

As many of you know, I have a passion for health and fitness. An element of this passion is being conscious of not only what my family eats and drinks but also the products we use for household and personal cleaning. With all the healthy eating and living we try to achieve, it never occurred to me to question or be concerned about what is in the toothpaste we use. That is until an article appeared in my weekly dental readings identifying the many ingredients contained in over the counter pastes that serve little to no purpose in optimizing oral hygiene and this alarmed me. I have spent several months trying different organic toothpastes available at the grocery store and have even tried a few attempts at making my own. I could never quite find something that had both a fresh taste and made my mouth feel clean until now. Continue reading “No BS!”

A Decade of Service to Celebrate

As I have expressed previously, one of the greatest blessings of being a dentist and an employer is having the opportunity to surround myself with wonderful women who help me to serve our patients. When tallying hours spent, the majority of our working hours are spent with the people at our places of employment, not the person we marry or the children we are raising. I feel fortunate that my staff feels more like a family. They are so much more than just co-workers. Continue reading “A Decade of Service to Celebrate”

More Than Just A Place To Work

FriendshipMore than….
just a place to work!

Over the years together as a dental team, we have tried our best to develop relationships that extend beyond that of a colleague/coworker. To highlight the friendships within our office, I want to share the sweet story of Sandra (assistant) and Laurie (secretary) who have been friends for thirty years and working for me for more than twenty years. Continue reading “More Than Just A Place To Work”

Congratulations to Michaela and Taylor


One of the greatest blessings of working with a group of women that I both love and admire is that I get to share in the joys of life outside of work. Many of you have come to know and adore our new hygienist, Michaela Barnette (she assumed Laura’s position when she retired to be with her children). Shortly after Michaela joined our team, she became engaged to the love of her life, Taylor Brown.

Get Ready For Cold, Flu, and COVID Season 2022

Cold Flu And COVID 2022It’s that time….time to get prepared for the inevitable cold, Flu, and COVID season that comes upon us as the temperatures drop and the hours of sunlight diminish.

My team and I take great pride in offering our patients sufficient discussions regarding the prevention and early treatment of dental disease. We also take great interest in keeping our bodies healthy to be able to best serve you. Over the past two years, I have spent hundreds of hours researching topics involving our immune system and overall health. It has been a very enlightening experience and as I travel into my next 20 years of patient care, I want to broaden our conversations of prevention and health to help each of you with optimal wellness. Continue reading “Get Ready For Cold, Flu, and COVID Season 2022”

Happy Fourth of July 2022!

As we gather with family and friends to celebrate the amazing gift of living in the United States of America, may we reflect on the sacrifices of those who came before us to fight and defend the freedoms we enjoy. The older I get, the more I understand and appreciate the honor it is to live in this country. I hope and pray that each of you experience safe travels and a wonderful weekend enjoying picnics and fireworks.

My amazing team and I want to thank you for your continued support of the care we provide. We are truly grateful for each and everyone of you. The office will be closed July 4-8th so that we may enjoy some extended time with our families. Just because I am not in the office does not mean that I am not available for you should you have a dental emergency.

For Every Season….There Is Change

Twenty-one years ago, at the tender age of 26, I purchased my dental practice from my retiring mentor, Dr. Jeff Mazza. Dr. Mazza had faithfully served his patients for more than three decades and he handed the reins over to me. As you can imagine, this was a transaction that came with much stress and fear for someone in her mid-twenties and just out of dental school. Dr. Mazza was entering a season of retirement and enjoyment as I was entering the season of adulthood and business ownership.

We are Celebrating Twenty Years Together

JessicaNext month, we will be celebrating twenty years since I bought the practice from Dr. Mazza (my amazing and supportive predecessor). He was patient and kind when dealing with a young dentist just out of dental school, learning her way. He was present and willing to continue to work a few more years as I got up to speed to care for his patients and he transitioned to retirement.
