When you choose us as your dental home, know that your needs are our priority, and that we will make every effort to accommodate your preferences. We understand the value of time, and do our best to schedule in such a way to get you in and out of the office quickly so you can go about your day.
Oral health is a lifelong matter of importance. In establishing a trusting relationship through quality care and clear communication, we hope to support you and your family for years to come.
Liz – Patient Care Coordinator
My name is Liz. I grew up in Colorado and have lived in Arizona for over 10 years. I have a 13 months old son named Brooks who keeps me busy. I have a deep love for health and fitness. During my spare time I enjoy CrossFit with my family, hiking, decorating, gardening, football and watching funny movies. My Top 3 favorite movies are Elf, Blind Side, and Anchor Man. Anything with Will Farrell and Kevin Heart will get me giggling!
Melanie – Hygienist
Let’s grow Phoenix! When I’m not working I enjoy tending to my vegetable garden or hiking with my dog Luna. After 23 years of working in this office and having kids along the way, my children are almost grown. But you may still find me cheering my daughter on at the soccer field.
Katie – Hygienist
I’ve been a dental hygienist since 2003 and have worked 1 day a week with Dr. Pappas for the past 9 1/2 years. My husband Erik and I have 3 great kids. Annie is 11, and our twin boys, Charlie and Bennett are 7 years old. I am active in community activities, especially Barrow Neurological Institute. I enjoy family and friend time at our cabin in Flagstaff all year long.
Christina – Assistant
I am an Arizona native who has been a dental assistant since 1999. I worked for Bakers Plant Nursery on the weekend for many years until they closed and have developed a love for gardening and plants. I love spending time with my friends and family and like to travel to Rocky Point and hang out on the beach.
Kimberly – Dental Assistant
Hi! My name is Kim and I am one of the few native Arizonans out here! I absolutely love Arizona and enjoy getting out and experiencing all that it has to offer every chance I get. When I’m not at work or studying, I am all about spending time with my sweet boy Hunter who is two and a half. I like to run but shopping is my real cardio! When I’m not caught up in all of my usual activities, you can find me on my couch binge watching Gilmore Girls. Thanks Netflix!
