Ann – Registered Nurse

I have been a registered nurse for 28 years.  After earning my degree at The University of Texas, Austin I was originally a neonatal intensive care nurse. I have been in Virginia since 2002 and have worked NICU as well as other areas. I have been at Smiles for almost two years as the nurse assistant.  I love being able to help people feel more relaxed when receiving the dental treatments they need. Anxiety plays a very large role in the need for sedation dentistry.  I’m there with patients as they go to sleep and then when they wake up and breath a huge sigh of relief.  It is rewarding to be part of a team that enables people to be more comfortable at the dentist.


My husband and I have three adult children still in the area whom we adore.  We love travel, good Texas bar-b-q, any sports team from Texas, and our five fur-babies at home.
