Sonya Vojnik
Dental Assistant
I have many years of experience as a dental assistant and office manager. I love the often light and friendly atmosphere we encourage in our office. But I also sympathize strongly with some people’s fear of the dental chair and feel fortunate to work for a dentist who shows concern and care for our patients.
