Meet The Staff


Registered Dental Hygienist

I provide thorough care for my patients, with love and compassion, and tons of patience and enthusiasm. I love working with people and taking care of their dental needs. I especially enjoy working with children and teaching them that there is nothing to fear when going to the dentist. Dr. Haws has very high standards. He has good moral values and loves what he does! My husband, Tim, and I have four children, Sean, Devon, Brooklynn, and Marissa. I love family movie night, any activity outdoors with my kids, and going to the beach or hiking to the falls. I am also a Sunday school teacher at church.
