Dental Assistant/Front Office
Hi, my name is April. I grew up in Orange County, California and moved to Arizona 12 years ago — that’s when I started working for Dr. Gioia. I recently got married and have a 13-year-old son and a 14-year-old stepson. I have been working as a dental assistant/front office staff member for the past 21 years.
I started my career by working in my childhood dentist office before getting my dental assisting and x-ray certification at the University of California. I enjoy spending time with my family and love music
Hi, my name is Kim. Before attending Dental Hygiene School, I was a Certified Dental Assistant for 13 years. I graduated from Rio Salado Dental Hygiene School in 2014 with honors and as a member of Phi Theta Kappa. I was honored to receive the Western Society of Periodontology award for being especially proficient in treating periodontal disease. I currently hold an Associates of Applied Science Degree in Dental Hygiene. I am laser certified and licensed to administer local anesthetic and nitrous oxide.
As a dental hygienist, my focus is on providing high quality care to my patients and educating them on how to maintain good oral health. I am committed to making hygiene appointments a comfortable and positive experience. I am here to learn your dental history, listen to your concerns and plan for a healthy future. Together, with the dental team, I will formulate patient centered hygiene care plans that meet all of your dental needs.
I am a native to Phoenix, AZ. Outside of the office, you can catch me at the gym or hiking a mountain. I enjoy the outdoors and camping. I am the youngest of three siblings and mother to 3 beautiful kids and 2 dogs!
My name is Lauren. I’m from Chicago and have been living in Phoenix since 2012. I spend most of my days with my animals. Aside from that, I enjoy doing any kind of volunteer work, especially in dental. I love to go to concerts, spend time on the lake, and travel.
I have worked for Dr. Gioia since 2014 and I enjoy it so much that I have decided to further my career by enrolling in a dental hygiene program so I can become a dental hygienist in the near future.
