The Staff

An experienced team: Our caring, and well trained staff provide high quality dental care.

  • 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 Dr. Sorcinelli 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.

I graduated in 1994. I have been trained in all aspects of general dentistry. I have taken every opportunity to stay updated with continuing my education. My husband and I have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. We moved here in 1995. I enjoy spending time with my family, doing crafts and crocheting. I look forward to meeting you and providing excellent care for you and your family.

  • Angela Garcia
    Office Manager

    I have been in the dental field over 30 years and it has been a privilege to have worked for Doctor Achatz.  It is a joy to be part of a professional team who pride ourselves  on creating a comfortable, caring environment while providing excellent dental care to all of our patients. 
    I am originally from Nebraska, but my husband and I have called Arizona home for over 30 years.  We love taking advantage of the many opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities, hiking and birding being two of our favorites.  We also enjoy spending time at home with all of our four-legged fur-babies!
