Hi, I have been at PLFD for 17+ years!  I’ve enjoyed watching a lot of my patients grow up into fine adults.  My favorite programs on TV are DIY and cooking.  I also follow the series Walking Dead, State of Affairs, and Revenge.  I recently began yoga and strength training and, to my surprise, enjoy the classes!  I have 4 kids and 6 grand kids and I am happy to say that they all live locally.  I love working at PLFD with Dr. Garcia and Dr. Peters.  Unlike other offices, we are given the opportunity to get to know our patients and their families.  We are truly a family at Parmer Lane Family Dentistry!



Denise comes from a business management background of more than 25 years.  She has been in dentistry since 2001.  Denise decided that she wanted to work part time and so she gave up management and came to PLFD to handle the accounting/insurance functions.  Denise’s ability to help patients understand their insurance coverage and financial obligation is only part of her contribution to the team.  She is happy to be with PLFD where everyone is greeted with warmth and caring.  It is a true team environment where everyone works together and contributes to our positive daily activities.  In her spare time she volunteers with Linus Connection.  She loves to garden and grows her own organic vegetables.  She is dedicated to her family and loves to have them all over for swimming, games, and BBQ’s.
