Paula Crosby: Clinical Assistant
Paula has been with us at The Provinces Dental since we first opened our doors in 2002. She has 20+ years of experience as a dental assistant and coordinator. Paula is down-to-earth, friendly, and loves to talk with Provinces patients. Several of our patients ask for her specifically, when they come in for treatment.
Paula is married, has 3 grown sons, and two grandchildren. Her life passions include healthy living, outdoor activities, such as camping and hiking, and spending time with her family.
Are you planning a trip soon? Paula also likes to travel. Tell her about your favorite destination, she would love to hear all about it.
Monica Perkins-Guardado: Clinical Assistant
Monica is a transplant from Southern California, and she joined us early in 2006. She has been a dental assistant for more than fifteen years. She handles a lot of the coordinating and ordering for our back office, and we never give her a moment’s peace. Our doctors really count on her and our staff enjoys her sweet, soothing presence.
Monica is married with two beautiful girls, and enjoys reading, spending time with her family, and is a karaoke master. Our patients sometimes confuse Monica with Tiffany and vice versa, but you definitely know it’s Monica, if she’s singing along with the music on the radio. Come on in for a performance today!
