Meet The Team

Valorie

Office Manager

I started working in dentistry when I was in high school where I learned on the job.  Later the state required you be x ray certified so I went to a class at Phoenix College and got certified. Dr Persons and I have been married for 39 years, and have 5 children. Four of our children are married now and we have 9 grandchildren.  Our fifth child is on a mission for the LDS church in Tennessee.

When we graduated, we opened our own practice after a year of other ventures. Our first office was on 43 Ave and Peoria, where I helped start things from scratch, while doing front office, back office and having children in the back room.  We have been at this location now for about 29 years now.

I enjoy getting to know our patients on a personal level. They are like family. Family is very inportant to me.  I enjoy camping, hiking, and family history work.


Ally

Receptionist

I joined the team May 2012 and have had a pleasant 5 years here. My favorite part of the job is greeting all of our patients as they come through the door and that I am able to learn so many new things about dentistry from Dr. Persons. I am currently attending school to become a dental hygienist.

Outside of work and school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love vacationing to different places and exploring the beautiful outdoors. I currently live in Phoenix.

Becky

Monday Hygienist

As Dr Persons’ daughter, I grew up in the office.  I worked at the front desk and helped out in the back starting in high school.  After attending Glendale Community College and graduating from Rio Salado school of Dental Hygiene, I began my career as a registered dental hygienist in 2002.  I love getting to work with my dad and seeing the same patients for many years as well as meeting new patients.  I also enjoyed working part time as a hygienist at a pediatric dental office for over 6 years.  Now, when I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our 3 boys.
