Kathy is one of the nicest people in the world. She has the innate ability to make everyone around her feel special. She started as an intern in 1997, completed her Registered Dental Assistant training and even became a clinical radiology instructor for the Clarita Career College, teaching dental students how to take x-rays. Her superior skills and attention to detail are apparent in all she does. She keeps current in all aspects of dentistry by insisting Dr. Goodrick take her to many of his continuing education workshops (she has even done root canals). For these reasons she is an indispensable part of the team and a joy to spend time with.
Kelly joined our team in October 2006. She received her training at The Bryman School for Dental Assisting in 1980. Kelly worked as a chairside assistant in Orthodontics for several years and then became a Radiographic Technician and began working for an x-ray lab in Santa Clarita specializing in Orthodontic x-rays. After taking time off to raise a family of two boys and a girl, it was our good fortune to have her return to dentistry. In our practice, you will see Kelly's radiant smile in both the front and back office as she endeavors to make your visit special.
