Hi! My name is Zoe, and I grew up in Beijing, China, and graduated from Emory University with my Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry. To pursue my passion of dentistry, I went to Forsyth School of Dental Hygiene in Boston, MA. I moved to Madison after graduating. As a dental hygienist, my goal is to offer the best care and attention to my patients, and encouraging good oral health and wellness. In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my friends and family, and exploring local places. Farmers market is one of my favorite weekly events.

My name is Denitza! I recently moved to Madison in November 2016. Prior to moving I studied at Aurora University, a small liberal arts college in the western suburbs of Chicago, and graduated with an English degree. My previous work experience has been primarily in customer service. I enjoy interacting with various types of people and take pride in always offering a helping hand. People find me to be an upbeat, self-motivated team player with excellent communication skills. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, eating, spending time with friends, and most importantly – eating.
Hi, my name is Emelita but most people call me Emma. I’m a Madison native who graduated from James Madison Memorial. I have known for most of my life that I wanted to work in the dentistry field, and becoming a certified dental assistant was the first step in my professional career. I got my certificate from Wisconsin School of Dental Assisting in Oconomowoc, and hope to further my education one day to become an Orthodontist. I enjoy hot Cheetos and limes, both combined and separate. When I’m not at work, I like to lift weights and listen to music.
Hey! My name is Lissete Aburto, but most people just call me Liz. I recently moved to Madison in June 2017 from Beloit Wisconsin. I graduated from Beloit Memorial High school, where I participated in Latino Club, was a member of the varsity soccer team, and ran varsity cross country. After graduating, I decided to join the work force right away to explore what fields I enjoyed working in the most. After trying out the Dental Assistant position, I have realized that I enjoy gaining my patients trust and helping them feel more comfortable, given that not everyone’s favorite’s place is the dentist. I strive to one day become a Dental Hygienist, but first I want to continue gaining dental assisting experience!
