The Amazing and Caring Team At Gilbert Dental Center

TODD & AME – Owners

This brother and sister duo are the ones responsible for the amazing vibe you feel when you come to GDC. The two of them practically grew up in their father’s dental office, which gave them so much insight on what was important to them when it came to running a dental office of their own. These two believe that everyone at GDC is family. From the GDC team members to each and every patient, you know that their love and compassion is genuine and is an environment you will want to be in!

AME – Registered Dental Hygienist

Education: Northern Arizona University, 1998—Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene The patients I see on a daily basis have become “family” to me. I like the interaction, being a part of something bigger, and helping my patients find health. I have a deep love and respect for dentistry. My job is amazing! I have a big family and my heart is full when I am completely emerged in their presence.

I grew up in the East Valley and my dad’s dental practice was here. My friends, family, and history belongs to the East Valley. I find pride in being able to serve the patients in my very own community.

I can’t wait to meet my next new patient! Come see me!

MEL – Registered Dental Hygienist

I am still relatively new to Arizona. I grew up in Chicago, Illinois but moved to Arizona this year because I love the desert! I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene after growing up around a family of dental professionals. I have to admit I am pretty nerdy when it comes to dental hygiene and I am passionate about helping my patients improve their oral health. My baby is my Belgian Malinois named Maverick, who takes over my life outside of the office. I am very adventurous and I love to travel. I love to hear my patient’s recommendations on travel spots! Daaa Bears!

CHELSEA – Front Office

I recently transitioned into the Dental world after being a part of the Competitive Cheerleading industry for 12 years. I am excited to bring my energy into the dental field. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my husband and our two little boys. I completed my BA in Marketing in 2017 and love being able to use my skills here at GDC. I love bragging about our amazing patients on social media. I grew up in Nebraska but an Arizona girl through and through. I am a foodie at heart, if you ever need a restaurant recommendation, I’m your girl!

JANN — Dental Assistant

I have been in dentistry for over 40 years. I grew up as an Air Force brat and have lived all over the world. I love helping people feel beautiful with their smiles. I am an avid animal lover. I have 3 four-legged fur babies who are my whole world. I love to watch football, and I’m not ashamed to say that I’m a Detroit Lions fan.

PATTY – Dental Assistant

I was born and raised in Arizona and I enjoy spending all of my free time with my family. I have been a Dental Assistant for the last 18 years and my favorite part of dentistry is teeth whitening. I love seeing the instant results from whitening and how much it brightens up the patient’s entire smile.

CHRIS – Dental Assistant

I am from Brooklyn, New York and am told by most people that my accent is undisguisable. I have been a dental assistant for 29 years and I genuinely love what I do. I have 2 wonderful children, 17 and 14 years old. I am proud to say that I have been married to my fantastic husband for 19 years. In my spare time, I love Hiking and being outdoors.

ANGELICA – Front Office

I am very familiar and comfortable in the dental front office setting. With 20 years in the industry, I can honestly say I wouldn’t do anything else. I love being able to educate patients about their dental needs, in real words they can understand. My main goal is to make patients forget they are at the dentist by making them laugh and feel at home. I am very picky about where I chose to spend my workday and I am so happy to have found my dental home. In my downtime, I enjoy journal writing and hope to one day publish a book. I love hanging out with my husband, our 3 young adult children and the million nieces and nephews that I have.

STARR – Front Office

First and foremost, I am a Rodeo mom and wife. I have two beautiful daughters that have followed in my footsteps with their love of rodeo. I worked in the medical field for over 20 years in Cardiology and recently transitioned into the dental industry. I can honestly say that I am happy with this change because of all the amazing smiles I’m able to see.
