Rovyne – Dental Assistant

Rovyne graduated and received her Dental Chair Side and Office Assistant Level II Diploma in 2014.  She was inspired to work in the field of dentistry because it elevates both the confidence and the overall well-being of a person through the power of proper oral health care.  Being a part of Dr Lee's practice has given her the opportunity to learn something new about dentistry everyday (and also pro tips on how to handle her 1 year old toddler!).  The greatest accomplishments in her life are being a mother and having a career that she is passionate about!  She looks forward to meeting each one of you!
