Working at Smile Huntington with Dr. Epakchi has introduced me to state of the art dentistry. We are continuously looking for a more innovative way to make sure we give our patients the best care. As the doctor's assistant, I’ve experienced such great enthusiasm while working alongside Dr. Epakchi, with over 8 years experience in dental assisting, we make sure our patients are comfortable with us and pleased with our work. I look forward in continuing to learn and grow in this dynamic office.
I enjoy spending time with my 3 year old daughter at the park, in the harbor and at the beach. During our free time together I read her Disney books and we are currently teaching her ABC's and 123s.
