Hi. My name is Patty. I've been a dental assistant since 1987. I really love what I do and can't imagine doing anything else. In the last few years I have taken all my expanded function courses for dental assisting.

I am so glad to be working close to home. I have been married for 18 years and have three great kids and a dog that keep me busy when I'm not at Fountains Family. I have a great sense of humor and I'm a "tell it like it is" kind of girl.

Working at Fountains Family Dentistry is great. Dr. Parker is one of the best dentists I have ever assisted. We make sure you get the best dentistry possible and are comfortable throughout the whole procedure. I look forward to meeting you soon!
