Patient Care Specialist
Hi, my name is Stacy. I always knew I wanted to be in dentistry and have been in the field for over 16 youthful years. I received my education from the Community College Tech in Minnesota and the University of Florida College of Dentistry in Gainesville and continue to pursue knowledge through advanced courses, such as those at Las Vegas Institute.
As one of Dr. Sutton's Patient Care Specialists, it is my job to ensure that your visits with us are comfortable and that all your needs are met. What inspires me is the ability to calm the fears of nervous patients and helping them to pursue dental health and then seeing their happiness with their new, healthy smile. Our team is so friendly and experienced that patients who initially come to us with apprehension are soon very comfortable and actually enjoy their visits with us.
Outside of the office, I love spending time with family, friends and my two fur babies. And beach get-a-ways.

I also enjoy my job because I get to share my time at work with such a talented team of professionals who are all committed to the same goal of ensuring that our patients have the best possible experience while receiving the best possible care.
When not at work, I love spending time with my husband and our three daughters.
