The Staff

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.
