Practice Manager

Hi Everyone,

Let me introduce myself…
My name is Brenda and I am excited to have just joined Simply Wellness Dental.

I have been in the dental field for the past 35 years and would like to share my knowledge and experience in practice management, teaching and consulting.

My experience and knowledge have brought me to my passion with dental treatment planning and patient care. I love to assist with explaining and reviewing to all our patients about treatment navigation and finances.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and especially with my 2 chihuahua besties: Kila and Koji.



Hello everyone! I joined SWD in Spring of 2021 and I’m so grateful to be a part of this welcoming team. I’ve always enjoyed customer service forward careers such as being a Flight Attendant for 5 years prior to switching gears to be a Dental Receptionist. With no other experience in dentistry (minus 7+ years of ortho treatment if you count it!) I’ve really enjoyed learning my role in the dental field including all the ins and outs of insurance lingo, treatment plans and especially how to ensure our patients’ visits go more smoothly.

When I’m not at the clinic, you can find me camping, reading, or catching up on the newest true crime series.
