I'm Marissa and I have been working in the dental field for 5 years. I have a love for learning and growing, public service and caring for others, which is why I chose to enter the dental profession. I am proud to work with an amazing team full of integrity, dedication, and great personalities! When I'm not working I am blissfully caring for my little boys, who are turning 5 and 3 years old soon. My family and I love being involved in community service through our church as well as just relaxing and enjoying each other's company at home. I am happy to help take care of you at my home away from home.
