Cheryl graduated from Carrington College Sacramento with her Associates in Dental Hygiene and has been maintaining smiles since 2019. Without the traditional path of RDA to RDH, she effortlessly adapted into the world of dentistry due to her gentle, patient demeanor.
Cheryl has always wanted to make a difference in a career promoting the health and wellbeing of all ages and backgrounds. She takes pride in taking the time to listen to patient concerns and her ability to comfort anxious, dental phobic patients.
In her free time, she likes to take her partially edentulous rat terrier on walks, spend time with family, travel, watch movies, and paint.
Ericka has been in the dental field since 2002. When Ericka was 14 years old, she started working as an office assistant where she learned to sterilize dental instruments and maintained the treatment rooms. As her interest in the dental field grew, she became a Registered Dental Assistant. After years of working in the dental field she decided to attend Canada College and Southwestern College to obtain her Associates Degree in Biology and Dental Hygiene. She enjoys educating patients about their dental health, by teaching them how to maintain good oral hygiene and healthy smiles.
Ericka also enjoys traveling, cooking, salsa dancing, and spending time with her family.
