Crystal

Dental Hygienist

I am one of the most recent additions to the wonderful team at Desert Sun Dental. I attended Yakima Valley College where I received my BA degree in Dental Hygiene. I was fortunate enough to return to my hometown of Quincy and join my team in July 2017. I love interacting with our patients, and being able to educate and encourage them to maintain good oral health.

Being bi-lingual in English and Spanish makes it possible for me to more effectively communicate with our Spanish speaking patients to help meet their needs.

I enjoy spending my spare time with my family and friends, playing volleyball, and traveling.
