I have been teaching sales for several Fortune 500 Dental companies in the last 4-5 year. I began my career in dentistry in 1970 when I graduated the Dental Assisting Program. The next two years was spent in obtaining a Degree in Dental Hygiene. I was in private practice as a Registered Dental Hygienist for 17 years. I later returned to UNC-CH and obtained a Bachelor Degree in Dental Auxiliary Teacher Education. I continued in Masters Degree courses in my degree studies. I joined Colgate Oral Pharmaceuticals enjoying a career as a Professional Sales Representative, followed by a Sales Training position, and ultimately a District Sales Manager position. I left COP and took a position as the Director of Sales with Discus Dental located in Culver City, CA. I took a brief sabbatical from dentistry with a Sales Manager position in Home Improvement Sales and Management followed by two entrepreneurial ventures in retail. I currently reside in Youngsville, NC with my husband and mother. I love teaching. I am very excited to join the Sunrise Team. My goal at Sunrise is to create passion in my students to achieve excellence in their new career in dentistry, as well as reaching a personal benchmark in life. I truly desire to help teach students obtain the skills they need to have a rewarding career in the dental profession.
I currently reside in Garner, NC with my husband and two beautiful daughters who are 20 and 14 years old. I started my career in dentistry six years ago and received my certifications at Wake Technical Community College, Wake AHEC and UNC at Chapel Hill. My strengths include infection control and sterilization. I specialize in calming fearful children and adults. My favorite part of dentistry is educating and making my patients feel comfortable during their visit. I love our students and enjoy watching them learn! During my spare time I enjoy Camping with my family, and volunteering for Missions of Mercy and the Men’s Baptist dental care bus.

Prior to attending Sunrise School of Dental Assisting I had zero knowledge of the dentistry field and what this career choice would have in store for me. I had an awesome instructor, as well as current Dental Assistants at Sunrise, to help guide me and continue to be successful in my career. Everyone has been extremely helpful and I have had nothing less than a great experience. After graduation, I was hired on by Sunrise and couldn’t be more happy with my job and the decision to attend Sunrise School of Dental Assisting! Thank you all!!

Sunrise School of Dental Assisting provided me with the knowledge and skills I needed to begin my career in the Dental field. The instructors were very helpful and thorough in explaining the lessons and procedures to the class, and also made it a point to provide any additional help/tutoring before/after lessons for students. I enjoyed my experience at Sunrise School of Dental Assisting. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to receive the proper education necessary in order to excel in their Dental Assisting career

At Sunrise they give you the tools you need to become successful as a Dental Assistant. You have smaller numbers in the class, so you are able to have more one on one time with an instructor if needed. It is a fast paced class, but the instructor is willing to meet with you before class time if you need help. It is a good balance between lectures and actual lab time. You have great hands on experience and work with live “patients” (class members) in order to get an actual feel of what it would be like. The team at Sunrise Dental are very encouraging and push you to strive for your best. They also help with shadowing at different offices and even inform you if there are job openings at other offices. I would recommend this program to anyone and know that they would also get the great training that I have received!
