Denise has been an orthodontic assistant for more than 15 years, and has been working with Dr. Shammaa for the last few. Denise finds her work as an assistant to be very rewarding. Seeing patients finish treatment and gain so much confidence is the best part of her job.
When she is not helping make beautiful smiles, she loves being active and is quite a water bug. She enjoys hanging out in her pool or at the beach with her husband and two kids!
Fun fact about Denise: She is a computer breaker; she can break any software in five minutes!
Becky has been working as an orthodontic assistant since she graduated First Institute’s dental assisting program half a dozen years ago.
