I have been working with Dr Wise and Dr Vanaki for 3 years now. I love the variety of dentistry we do here at the office. I especially like assisting with the IV sedations and seeing the huge change in our patient’s smiles when they are doing Invisalign.
I have been working here at Dr. Wise's since 2008. You may see me up at the front, assisting Dr. Wise or doing hygiene as I have my Dental Hygiene degree. I love working here as we are a real team, and have really amazing patients. Remember there's nothing like a beautiful smile.
I'm the hygienist on Monday, Tuesday Wednesday and Saturday's. I began working in this office 26 years ago, and joined Dr. Wise's team 13 years ago. We value our long-term patients and love meeting the new patients who come to our practice. This is truly a great and relaxing environment to work in, and I know that makes it just as relaxing for you the patient.
I am the hygienist on Thursday, Friday and Saturday's. I joined Dr. Wise's team in 2013. My goal is to make sure that all patients feel comfortable and relaxed. I look forward to meeting you and working together with you for a healthy and happy smile!
