Mary – Team Leader
I grew up in a military family, and we settled in the Hampton Roads area, where I grew up and went to school. I attended George Mason University for undergraduate studies and then received my Registered Dental Assisting certification in Orange County, CA. I then returned to Virginia Beach to pursue my dental assisting career. I continue to pursue my education to show my children to always reach for the sky. 

My husband and I are the proud parents of four children, including twins. I enjoy listening to music, cooking, reading, watching movies, and spending time with my family.

I have worked with both doctors since 1999. It has been a privilege to help them serve our community and impact the health and smiles of so many patients. I will do everything I can to make sure our patients have a wonderful experience and feel good about putting themselves and their families in our care.
