Julie has been a Fountain Hills resident for nearly 15 years. Born in the Los Angeles area, her family moved to Central Phoenix while she was just a teenager, making her practically a native. Having had very little dental care as a child, she was in need of many dental procedures as a teen and young adult. Her family dentist was the first to suggest the field of dental hygiene as a possible career. A good job market, pay and flexibility were the key selling points, but Julie soon learned a whole new calling in life; A purpose fulfilled in helping on a one on one basis. Shy by nature, she has found the true value of human connection. Her experiences as a dental patient herself make her especially compassionate and sensitive to the needs and insecurities of her patients. Julie truly cares about your total experience as a patient and the quality of dental health care you receive. She graduated Phoenix College in 2001 with an Associate degree in Dental Hygiene. She has certification in the use of laser therapy, local anesthesia and nitrous analgesia, and like everyone on our team she is CPR certified as a healthcare provider. She has been practicing dental hygiene full time since 2001 which is over 17 years. During this time she has gotten married and started a family with 2 beautiful children that attend the Fountain Hills public schools. She loves our community here in Fountain Hills and is often seen at school and community functions.
