My name is April, I went to Wytheville Community College received my Dental Assisting certificate in 2008, and graduated with my associate’s degree in 2010. I have 12 years of dental experience, assisting and front office duties and 4 of those years were in Endodontics. I understand firsthand how dental treatment can make some patients uneasy and can use my personal and professional experience to help put their minds at ease. I love being part of a team that puts patient’s desires and concerns first. I’m a mom of 3 Kyra, Khloe, and River. We also have 2 dogs Winnie and Comet. We live off the New River in Fries VA, so when I’m out of the office I enjoy spending time out on the water, cooking out, or movie nights with family, and friends.
