Meet Our Team - Candace

Candace Roberts

Operations Coordinator

My name is Candace Roberts. I am the mother to two amazing young men who bring me more joy than I could have ever imagined, and I have an amazing husband that adds to that happiness.  I love to spend time with my family, going to movies, hiking, playing games, cooking and laughing together. I’m a Utah native and while I miss the seasons and the beautiful mountain landscape of Northern Utah, I have learned to love Arizona.

 One of my passions is taking care of people by serving them, which is why I love dentistry! I have more than 14 years of dental experience throughout my career.  I began my journey in dentistry when I was 18 years old. I was trained as an assistant for a very busy Endodontic office and spent five great years with that office. I took some time off from dentistry so I could raise my boys.  After they were in school full time, I returned to the dental field as a administrator in a large multi provider dental office in Utah. In 2012 we started a new adventure as my husbands job brought us to Arizona, where I have continued to work in the dental care. The thing I love most about dentistry is that I get to meet so many amazing people and I get to help them take care of their dental needs. My goal is to make sure each of our patients feel like a good friend or family member.

Jessica Smith

Dental Assistant

Hi, I’m Jessica! I was born and raised in North Carolina, where most of my family still lives. In 2006 I moved to Arizona with my Mom, Step Dad, and my brother. I’ve moved around a few times since then, but I’ve always found myself coming back to Arizona where I feel most at home.

I love spending time with my family, traveling, camping, horseback riding, and anything to do with the ocean or lake. I also love spending my free time taking photos, riding sport bikes, and practicing my aim at the shooting range. I have a Rottweiler named Medusa and she is almost 5 years old. We’ve been through a lot together and she will always be my number one.

After high school I started working at customer service jobs but it never felt like it was enough, so I went back to school to become a dental assistant.  Since I started my career as a dental assistant, I’ve loved every moment of it.  My goal is to continue my education and become a dental hygienist.
