I am a native Tennessean. I graduated from Chattanooga State’s Dental Hygiene program in 1989 and was awarded the Procter & Gamble Dental Hygienists Professional Award in Preventative Oral Health Care. I joined Dr. Rodriguez’s practice in 1996. I am thankful to practice with a diverse group of co-workers that I consider my second family.
I enjoy educating patients on how to improve and/or maintain a healthy smile. I enjoy continuing education in the field of dental hygiene to bring out patients the individualized care they need to confidently share their smile.
I truly believe you can make someone’s day with a smile. It is a joy to help people realize their smiles importance. We have a great team in our practice to assist you in making the smile you want to achieve a reality.

I was born in Mexico. I grew up in Cuernavaca, the city of the eternal spring. I have lived in many places in the US. I went to school in San Antonio, TX. I have lived in Chattanooga for the last 19 years, with my husband and two children. My favorite thing to do is traveling. I think it is the best way to learn.
