Meet the Hygiene Team
Adrienne has worked with patients as a Dental Hygienist for 10 years. With an Associates in Applied Sciences and Certification in local anesthesia and laser procedures, she finds satisfaction helping patients feel comfortable as they discover the benefits of oral health. Adrienne enjoys relaxing at a good movie, rocking at any country music concert, or spending time in the desert riding ATV’s. At the same time, she loves ASU or Cardinal football games and finding a good Mexican restaurant.
Brandy started working as an assistant at Mountain View Family Dental in 2010 before earning her degree in Dental Hygiene. She loves working with our cohesive team and appreciates the opportunity to help patients understand their oral health. She believes the motto “Everything happens for a reason,” has helped define many of her life experiences. Brandy admits she’s a bit of beach bum, and would gladly be found in Bora Bora. But that would mean leaving her dog, Memphis, behind! Patients love Brandy’s positive attitude and desire to understand their concerns.
Carleen holds a degree in Dental Hygiene and thoroughly enjoys interacting with patients and helping them feel better about their smile. Her empathetic nature gives her insight to people’s anxiety, leading to steps that help them through treatment. Traveling with her family means more to her than the destination, and she enjoys reading a good ethnography by any author. Carleen doesn’t really have a favorite food, but she does have a dog named Nacho!
Carolyn holds the distinction of serving the dental profession for 46 years and continues to enjoy helping each patient feel like they’re the only one she’s serving that day. As a Dental Hygienist, she sometimes uses essential oils or breathing exercises to help patients enjoy their visits. Carolyn lives by the Golden Rule, along with William Arthur Ward’s words, “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” She enjoys cruises and still has an Alaska cruise on her bucket list. More than anything, she enjoys quiet times doing Sudoku, jigsaw puzzles, and reading.
Julie also serves on our talented hygiene team and has been a Dental Hygienist for 6 years. Leaving patients with a smile on their face is one of Julie’s goals every day, and she sincerely believes “people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” She recently took a laser certification class to provide first-class periodontal therapy and has been thrilled with the results she’s seen with her patients. While Julie has several hobbies, she’d just as soon spend time with her baby boy!
Linda has dedicated 35 years to dentistry, the majority as a Dental Hygienist. She appreciates getting to know her patients and making a difference in their dental health. Linda loves helping patients discover the benefits of comfortable care, and she's dedicated to solving their concerns. Linda enjoys real estate projects, gardening, self-reliance, her kids, and grandkids. But she would be willing to take time for a cruise to Europe with a little scuba diving in the Greek Isles!
With over 16 years of experience in the dental field, she has the confidence and dedication to help make your next dental appointment a pleasant one. Shelly loves talking teeth and US history, but helping patients improve their oral health is her favorite part of the job. In her down time Shelly enjoys spending time with her husband and her dog, especially on the beach.
Trisha supports our preventive focus as a Dental Hygienist. She loves the one-on-one interaction with with her patients and welcomes every opportunity to meet new people from all different types of backgrounds. Although she’s taken many continuing education courses over the years, she doesn’t hesitate to draw on the vast resources in our practice to find answers to every question. Trisha finds that taking the time to listen to concerns and fears helps immensely. She enjoys talking with her patients and guiding them through every step of their visit. In her free time, she loves movie nights at home with her family.
Kaelin is another valuable member of our hygiene team and has been a Dental Hygienist for two years. She earned an Associates in Applied Science before receiving her degree in Dental Hygiene from Mesa Community College. She thrives on building strong relationships with patients and tries to do everything possible to ensure the comfort of each one. For Kaelin, a dream vacation would be a week at a Disney resort, followed by a beach house stay with her family. But she agrees with Marcus Aurelius who said,"Remember this, that very little is needed to make a happy life." She spends a lot of time with her kids but enjoys a dance class or two along with reading books like Harry Potter.
Nicole received her Bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene from Northern Arizona University and has served patients for 10 years. She always tries to put herself in the shoes of her patients, creating an environment of understanding and empathy. Her patients quickly learn she has their best interests in mind from start to finish. While her dream vacation would be a trip through Europe experiencing all modes of transportation, she has many pets to consider at home. She also appreciates painting, baking, and reading.
