AMANDA LOMBARDO: DENTAL ASSISTANT
Hi I’m Amanda! I’m a native Phoenician and have been living with my husband and two children in North Scottsdale for 9 years. I graduated from Phoenix College in 2004 with my Associate’s Degree in Dental Assisting. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and most of all building relationships with my patients.. My family is very important to me. I spend my free time planning events and parties. We frequent museums, jump parks, libraries, and even enjoy running 5ks!
RACHEL THOMAS: DENTAL HYGIENIST
My passion for the field of dentistry began with my dad, a practicing periodontist. I remember as a child my mom bringing me and my younger brother to his office and picking him up for lunch, most often his choice of Subway. To this day, I love the smell of Subway in a dental office. Visiting the dental office was one of my favorite times growing up; his staff was always so friendly and excited to see me, and I always looked forward to the times when I got to climb into the chair and get my teeth cleaned. This environment felt like a second home to me.
After soul-searching through my first years of college, I decided that the path for me would be one that would lead to giving people a great smile-one of the most important physical features. Dentistry at Westland has given me the friendly, family environment that I had growing up, and I now take joy in greeting and meeting patients in hopes of giving them that same excitement in coming to the dental office. I recently married my best friend and love of my life, which has been a blessing and the start of an amazing adventure. With him by my side, and with this amazing career, my life feels complete.
KAREN WESSON: DENTAL HYGIENIST
In 1977 I became a long time resident of Phoenix with origins from Buffalo, NY. My interest in the dental field began in the mid 1980’s as a dental assistant. I found the dental field to be a very rewarding occupation. I received my Associates of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene in 1999. With more interest in furthering my education, I attended Northern Arizona University Completion Program for Post Licensure dental hygienists. I graduated from NAU with a Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene in 2009.
My husband and I have a grown son Ryan who recently graduated from NAU with a BS in Photography. He is currently seeking that well paying job. We are also pet parents to two very spoiled Mini Schnauzers. In our spare time we explore Arizona.
