SHARON

Registered Dental Assistant

Sharon has 35 years of dental experience as a registered dental assistant at Family Dentistry Associates of Monona! After graduating MFL High School in 1985, Sharon went to Kirkwood Community College from 1985-1986 for dental assisting and expanded function. She has also received further dental assisting education and is trained on the CEREC. When asking Sharon what she loves most about her job, Sharon answered, "I enjoy working with our patients, and especially working with children. I enjoy seeing all the changes in dentistry over the years and the challenges that come with using new materials and equipment. This keeps the job interesting and it is very rewarding to see the changes we can make with patients' smiles. I love to see how happy they are with their new smiles when we are done! I also enjoy the closeness of working with co-workers in a small office. We are all like family!" 

Sharon has been married to her husband, Jeff, for 35 years. They have a farm together near Elgin and have three children, Andrew, Cassandra, and Mitchell. She enjoys working on their family farm with their beef cows/calves. When not working, Sharon enjoys a little gardening, hiking on the farm, mushroom hunting, motorcycle riding, driving her Jeep wrangler, and driving their side by side on the farm.
