Amber , Dental Assistant
Amber was born and raised in Boise. She enjoys assisting for the confidence, variety and challenges this practice has offered her. She worked part-time for the office as a sterilization person in the early 90's and has been a full-time team member since 1994. She is the mother of Cameron, Stormi, and Evan and she is engaged to Brad who has twin boys, Caleb and Cody and a daughter Chandler. She is also grandmother to her first grandson, Shayn. Her family enjoy boating, snowmobiling and spending time with their friends. Her creative side involves sewing and ceramics and her most recent hobby is learning how to make candles.
Amber really keeps the office going. She is organized , a hard worker and has the responsibility for making sure that we have everything when we need it and that it is all repaired and working. This may seem like a small task, but when you see our inventory of all the little supplies that it takes to have on hand for each appointment, you find that it is a really big assignment. She is in charge of the treatment area and hires and trains the other employees in that area.
Amber did on-the-job-training here in the office. She studied very hard and has completed all the requirements of a dental assistant. She took the Dental Assistant Fundamentals exam at BSU and has also taken all the classes for her Expanded Duties Certificates.
As you can tell, Amber is an integral part of this office. The patient's love her and so do the other staff members. We are lucky to have her.
Sharon, Office Manager
Sharon grew up on a farm outside of Emmett. She was the youngest daughter in a family of 9, so as you can imagine, she grew up very spoiled by her older brothers and sisters. She was very active in school, church and community projects and loved singing in a trio with two of her friends. She graduated from high school, married and began her family. She now has 3 grown, 8 grandchildren that she adores and 1 great-grandchild.
She spent 8 years in the Rexburg, ID area where she worked for Merrill Rudd, CPA. He was her friend and teacher and really gave her a start in the direction which has become her lifelong profession. She moved to Boise in 1976 and has lived here since. She began working in the dental office in September 1982 and has enjoyed the many years association with all the wonderful patients.
In June 1997, she married Dennis. They have had lots of fun together working, traveling, tending grandchildren and whatever else comes along.
In the fall of 2001 she signed up for the "Block of the Month" at The Quilt Crossing and this started a new interest in quilting. She purchased an embroidery machine and a serger and has had fun not only in creating things herself, but assisting her granddaughters in learning to sew.
Sharon loves working on the business side of the medical profession. She enjoys being able to participate in helping people to feel better and to feel better about themselves. Cosmetic dentistry is especially fun because it does so much to improve a person's self-esteem.
If you ever have a question or need help with anything having to do with the office, Sharon is the one to ask for. She will make sure that you get the assistance that you need.
