Hello my name is Erika I have been a dental assistant for 10 years and love working here and being part of this great team. Here is a little about myself, my favorite places are the beach and the fair, even though I don’t go in the water, and I don’t get on the rides but I do love the food! I love listening to music and hope to go to a Red-Hot Chili Peppers concert one day. I like finding new recipes to try so if you have any good ones let me know, just don’t ask me to bake anything because I will fail every time. My favorite part of my days is having dinner with my 3 kids, it is messy, noisy and perfectly chaotic every time and even our dog and lizard join us sometimes.
