Holly-Office Manager and Insurance Coordinator
I was born in Mesa, AZ but was raised in Florence. I graduated from Florence High School in 2001. After graduating from high school I attended Pima Medical Institute where I learned dental assisting. I worked for three years as a dental assistant before becoming the office manager and insurance coordinator for Florence Family Dentistry in 2004.
Whether it is our little girls dance recitals, or oldest sons soccer games, or playing chase with our youngest son, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three kids. As a family we love going to Pinetop, Mexico, and taking drives in the desert.
I enjoy working at Florence Family Dentistry and have made friendships that will last a lifetime.
I grew up in Gilbert, AZ. I attended Mesa Community College where I graduated with my Associate in Applied Science degree in Dental Hygiene. I am committed to making each patient as comfortable as possible and strive to provide quality patient care. I have a cheerful personality and enjoy working in the dental profession.
I enjoy spending time with my family doing outdoor activities such as horseback riding, snowboarding, and staying at my family's cabin in Payson, AZ.
Kirsten- Dental Hygienist
I was born and raised in Coolidge, AZ. I lived in Flagstaff, AZ while earning my Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from Northern Arizona University. I enjoy working with patients and sharing my knowledge of caries and disease prevention. I enjoy helping patients overcome their fears associated with coming to the dental office. In my spare time I travel, cook and spend time outdoors. I also love spending time with my family and friends. I am happy to be part of the team at Florence Family Dentistry!
We are a dental practice devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative procedures that will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles!
A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We offer satellite TV in all our of treatment rooms so you can sit back and watch your favorite shows while getting your dental work done and for those patients that are especially fearful, we offer Nitrous Oxide.
We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.
