Simona loves family, friends and nature. When not at the office you may even find her roller skating at the local roller rink! Simona joined the American River Orthodontics team as an Orthodontic Assistant in January, 2018, after her intense interest was cultivated while pursuing her RDA, CDA and OAP licenses from Sacramento City College Dental Assisting Program. She enjoys meeting so many different patients and being part of the journey to transform their smiles. Simona’s enthusiasm and dedication serving patients at American River Orthodontics stems from having the opportunity to learn so many new things and grow as a dental health professional.
