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! She forged her career in a large established practice for over 10 years but, then felt the need to gain different experiences at a new practice. Thus landing her at Advanced Dentistry & Implant Center. After all her years in Dentistry, what she looks forward to the most is changing peoples lives.
