Shawna is your Dental Hygienist with focuses on your overall health and the prevention of disease. If you do need more extensive periodontal therapy, Shawna will educate you on your condition, answer any questions that you have, and ensure that you are comfortable throughout your appointment. She began her career in dentistry as a dental assistant in Palm Springs, California, continuing her dental career in Arizona, and becoming a dental hygienist in 2001. In 1998, Shawna moved to Arizona where she now lives with her husband and their enthusiastic Labrador Retriever, Ava. Together, the three of them enjoy hiking our Arizona trails, especially Oak Creek Canyon near Sedona. Shawna is always planning her next trip. Her favorites include the Isla Mujeres off the coast of Cancun, the Banff-Lake Louise area in Canada, Amsterdam, Hawaii, Florence, Italy, and all along the Oregon Coast. If you have found a wonderful retreat or are thinking of planning a vacation, Shawna would love to hear all about it!
