  • Shawna -

    I was born and raised in eastern Pennsylvania. I graduated with an Associate’s Degree in dental hygiene from Northampton Community College in May 2002. I moved to Arizona in October of 2003. I have been working for Sun City West Dental since 2007. As a dental hygienist, I genuinely care about my patient’s needs and enjoy finding methods to improve each and every individual’s oral health. I strive to provide a comfortable environment as well as maintain the standards that Sun City Dental has in place. I am certified to administer local anesthetic for dental procedures and always looking to expand my knowledge with continuing education. My husband and I have 2 daughters. We enjoy camping, outdoor activities and spending quality time with family and friends. I look forward to serving you and proving quality, compassionate care.

  • Ali -

    I received my Associates in Dental Hygiene in 2003 from Forsyth Institute in Boston and my Bachelors in Hygiene in 2010 from NAU. My husband and I are from the Midwest. We hail from Illinois. Moved to Arizona in 1991.  We have a teenage daughter who we cherish every moment with. Love to spend time at the beach, camp in our RV and play tennis as a family.  I am so happy to be working with the team here at Sun City West Dental. I look forward to meeting everyone and welcoming new families into the practice.

  • Nikki -
    Dental Assistant

    I have been a dental assistant for 26 years. I am a mother to an amazing daughter and two adorable, yet, rotten cats. I love God, family, and country. When I have down time, I enjoy hiking, camping, fishing and binging Netflix. At work, my patients become my friends….Beware. Can’t wait to meet you.

  • Jennifer -
    Practice Administrator

    I was born in Southern California but moved to Arizona as an infant so I am almost a native.  My family goes back several generations of Arizonans. I have been in the dental field for over 43 years, starting as a chairside and lab assistant while in a cooperative education in High School.  I loved dentistry from the beginning and was always anxious to learn more. I went to college gaining more knowledge and training which helped me to eventually become a practice administrator.  I met Dr. Achatz in October of 2022 and we have never looked back.  I am so pleased to be working with such kind and talented people who truly care for their patients.  I believe true customer service is sadly disappearing so here in our office we have made a conscious decision to go above and beyond for our patients.

  • Holly -
    Patient Care Coordinator

    I was born overseas but have lived in Arizona most of my life. I have been in the dental field for over 25 years, 20 of them as a dental assistant. During that time, I was also an instructor at a dental assisting school. I truly enjoyed passing on my knowledge to the students. For the last 5 years, I have worked at the front desk as a patient care coordinator. I look forward to taking care of you and your needs.
