Melissa

Melissa

Office Manager, Registered Dental Assistant

Melissa has been an RDA since 1996 and loves that she has been able to work with kids for her whole career. Working with kids is both “rewarding and challenging” but she truly enjoys it. Kids love Melissa and she has had many patients draw or color pictures and bring them to her at their appointment because she is their friend at the dentist!
Melissa has worked at Little Fish Dental since 2012. She feels grateful to be part of a team whose collective goal is to make the patient’s experience in the dental office enjoyable and comfortable. She believes that one of the team’s strengths is their focus on holistic dental care and wellness – treating the whole patient, not just the symptom. Melissa loves learning new skills and being in an innovative office.
In her free time, Melissa loves to spoil her Yorkshire terrier Trixie. Melissa also enjoys hiking, kayaking, and spending time with friends and family.
