Dental Assistant

Hello Flagstaff, my name is Farrah. I have worked as a dental assistant for 18 years. I had the privilege to be trained on the job. I absolutely love working at High Country Family Dentistry, my home away from home, because we have a wonderful team who are genuinely thoughtful and caring. In my spare time you can find me exploring Arizona outdoors with my daughter and friends.

Hi, I’m Amanda. I have worked in the dental field for 11 years. I graduated from NAU’s Dental Hygiene Program in 2014 and have been working at High Country Family Dentistry for almost 6 years. My favorite part of working here is that we all feel like family and the close bond we have with our patients. In my spare time, my husband and I enjoy traveling to new places and experiencing the local culture. I also like to dabble in photography.

My name is Anna, I have worked at High Country Family Dentistry since 2020 as a hygienist since 2014. Before I went to hygiene school, I was a dental assistant for 3 years. I grew up in Flagstaff and later attended NAU where I received a B.S. in Chemistry with a minor in Biology and then went back for my B.S. in Dental Hygiene. My favorite part of working at High Country is being a part of not only a compassionate but highly qualified team. In my free time I enjoy cooking and playing disc golf with my family and our dog Rey.
