My name is Barbara and I’m a native of Arizona. I graduated from Bryman’s School in Phoenix, Arizona and I’ve been in dentistry for over 34 years.
I’ve worked in both the front and back office. I love working with people and making them smile. Laughter is always good medicine. I love family pictures. My wall is full of smiles.
God has blessed me with a wonderful family. I’ve been married for more than 33 years and have a wonderful husband, 3 sons, and a grandson.
I’ve worked for Dr. Shumway for over 12 years now and couldn’t have picked a better group of people to work with. And, as I said, laughter is always the best medicine!!
My name is Judy. I was born and raised in Chandler until I was 16. My father was in the military and we moved to Clovis, New Mexico. My husband was in the military and when he retired we moved back to Arizona.
I love people and enjoy working with patients to help meet their dental needs. In my spare time I enjoy swimming, working out, and spending time with family.
My name is Kandi and I was born in Utah, but raised in Mesa. I have 4 very active kids. They keep me running in every direction.
In 2008, while living in Southern Utah, I entered the dental field. I have been a dental assistant for over 7 years. I have been with the Shumway Dental Team since September, 2014.
I am very fortunate to work with such an amazing team. Dr. Andy and Dr. Joel truly care about their patients and their dental health. I enjoy coming to work every day and being able to assist with the transformation of patient’s smiles.
When I am not at work, I love to spend as much time with my kids as I can. We enjoy camping, watching movies and playing (or watching) sports.
My name’s Holly. I have been a dental hygienist with Shumway Dental Care for over 15 years.
I am originally from New York. Me and my very Italian husband met in 1990 and in 1992 decided to build a life here in Arizona.
We have a 15 year old daughter and a 10 year old son that keep us very busy. My favorite pass times are reading, traveling, and eating my husbands great food.
My goal as a hygienist is to make my patients feel at ease and confident that I always have their best interests at heart.
My name is Darci and I was born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where most of my family still resides.
I met my husband 17 years ago at NMSU in Las Cruces, NM. We have 2 very athletic teenage boys that keep us quite busy and well entertained
I enjoy visiting my family, I am a one time full marathon runner (one time for a reason), and try to enjoy working out to stay fit (allows me to keep up with my boys). While I enjoy visiting family, my favorite place to be is on the beach, where my husband has promised to retire us.
I have had the privilege to be a part of changing the lives of others as a dental assistant for the past 16 years. I received my Dental Assisting Certificate at Pima Medical Institute in Albuquerque, NM. I have been with Dr. Andy and Joel Shumway for the past 5 years as a dental assistant and the Shumway Dental Care Team Leader for the past 4 years.
These past 5 years have been some of the best in my career. I am lead by two amazing leaders which have given me the tools to lead our incredibly talented team. Our team makes my job as a team leader fun, enjoyable, and easy! My passion for helping others is fulfilled working with, in my opinion, two of the best dentists in the Valley.
Hi, my name is Karen. I grew up in Pennsylvania but have lived in a few different states. I finally planted roots in Arizona in January 2002.
I have been married to my husband for over 19 years and we have one son. We have several hobbies, but the one occupying our time right now is restoring old cars.
I have been in dentistry since 1998. I took an interview on a whim and landed a future in dentistry. I call that luck. I have been with Shumway Dental Care since December 2010 and love working here. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to spend my day with.
I was born and raised in Southern California, and moved to Utah for college. I went to the Utah College of Dental Hygiene in Provo, UT and have been a dental hygienist since 2010.
My husband and I moved to Arizona in 2012, and was excited to join the Shumway Dental Team in 2014. I find my work rewarding, as I love to help people.
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 5 years now. We love being able to visit family in the surrounding states of California and Utah. When I am not working, I enjoy taking my dog for walks, going paddle boarding on the close by lakes, and hosting game nights with friends at my house. I love to spend time with friends and family and do all I can to live life to the fullest.
Hi, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Hilda, and I’m proud to say that I love my job. I’ve been with Dr. Shumway for 24 years, and have been blessed to be part of this fun and caring team that is so passionate to your dental health.
