Meet The Team


Dental Assistant

Kathi has worked as a Dental Assistant at Just For Kids Pediatric Dentistry since 1991. She feels that Dr. Tom is an amazing pediatric dentist and that she is now very fortunate to be working with his daughter, Dr. Eryn!  Her greatest reward is turning a fearful child into a child who looks forward to coming to see Dr. Eryn, Dr. Maribel and the Just For Kids team. She feels she can relate to such patients because she had the same fears when she was young. Kathi enjoys rehabbing older homes and working part-time in the summer at a nursery and landscaping company where she can be outdoors.
