Lisa - Practice Manager

Hi, I’m Lisa.  I joined the Advanced Pediatric Dentistry team in September 2009 when the office first opened here in Pasco.  I have been in the dental field since 2006. The dental field is my passion. Here at Advanced Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we strive to educate the local schools and our community about good oral hygiene.  My goal is to make sure our patients walk out happy. We have an outstanding team that works together to make sure your child’s dental experience is a fun and positive one. My husband Fonso and I moved to Pasco in 2010.  We have two wonderful boys. During my time away from the office, you will catch me spending time with my boys and traveling.
