Sharon | Practice Administrator
Every day I am excited to help patients achieve the healthy and beautiful smile they want and deserve. A smile on your face puts a smile on my face! I am so fortunate to be with an amazing team that strives to give every patient a 5-star experience on every visit.
I was one of the first licensed Registered Dental Assistants in California where I earned my dental degree. I worked for over 15 years as an RDA in general, pedodontic, and orthodontic practices. I have taught in dental assisting schools, worked in management for two major insurance companies, and traveled the country teaching hundreds of practices how to use their dental software and how to provide the highest level of clinical care to their patients.
I moved to Florida in 2017 after living in several states and visiting 49 of the 50 states. Can you guess which one I have left to see? I am looking forward to making new friends and enjoying the outdoor life Florida has to offer. I have 2 daughters, and 4 grand-daughters.
Mary | Registered Dental Hygienist, B.S.
My father was a dentist, so dentistry has been an important part of my entire life. I learned from his example how important people are as individuals and should be treated with kindness and respect.
I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Dental Hygiene in 1969 at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I have been in full time practice since then – moving to Fort Myers in 1978. I have been with Cypress Lake Dental since 2007.
I enjoy gardening, crafts, baking, and spending time with friends.
Linda | Registered Dental Hygienist
I enjoy helping my patients maintain a healthy mouth by providing a comfortable and thorough cleaning and also passing along the way to benefit through your dental care at home.
I am a graduate of The Ohio State University with a minor in psychology. I love music and play a few instruments. I love to read and of course, Buckeye football!! Most important is time spent with friends and family and the happiness grandchildren have brought into our lives. I highly recommend it☺
