Orthodontic Assistant

I graduated from Lackland Air Force Base in Texas and have 18 years of dental experience. It is my goal to walk our patients through any procedure with an upbeat, positive attitude. I love seeing the final product after treatment is done, but more than that, I love that we’ve restored self-confidence in someone by providing a brand-new, beautiful smile! We have an incredible team here. I find it admirable that Dr. Shems not only treats her patients like family, but cares about the community. She actively supports local causes and teams, especially if one of her patients requests sponsorship.  

I enjoy spending my time outside of work with my husband, five children, and our dog! I love to watch and play sports with my family, it’s one of my favorite pastimes!
