Heather Skelton, Certified Dental Assistant 

Heather considers herself fortunate to call Phoenix her home after living in Canada, Idaho, and Washington. The blue skies, abundant sunshine, and opportunity to play year round convinced Heather to put roots down and raise her family here.

She enjoys hiking, outdoor fun, cooking, and visiting California beaches. After a friend suggested a career in dental assisting, 20 years ago, Heather knew that helping people was her calling. She has never looked back! 

Brielle Block Marketing & Promotional Manager, Scheduling Coordinator

Brielle is an Arizona native, born and raised in the heart of Scottsdale. Her career in Dentistry started at a very young age manning her father’s front desk at his family dental practice. Her father, Dr. Gregory Joseph DDS owned two family practices as well as being the head Dentist for the State of Arizona. From there she learned the ins and outs of the industry working chair side for her father, managing his office, and helping him grow his business. After college, Brielle decided to take a different career path and forge her way into the Beauty and Cosmetic industry. She became and artist and manager for such companies as MAC and Chanel. She also started her own company Think-Beautiful, doing hair and makeup for celebrities, commercials, weddings, and special events in 2013. However, something kept calling her back to the Oral Health Field. On a whim, Brielle decided to explore job openings in the Dental field when she came across a job posting for a new dental office. Brielle accepted a position with Advanced Dentistry & Implant Center without hesitation and quickly became part of the Dr. James Oh A.D. family.  Although she diverged from Dentistry, being in this industry and part of the AD family was simply meant to be!
