Paige has been working with us for about a year and a half, learning all the ins and outs of dentistry in preparation for her future in the Hygiene Program at TMCC. She is originally from Belmont, CA, the oldest of 3 girls and is planned to get married in June of this year. Paige loves to spend her days off swimming or doing anything in Reno/Tahoe that involves being active and outdoors. She loves traveling anywhere that is new; as long as she is with her fiance, Collin, she is happy! Paige chose the dental field because she loves having the ability to improve someone’s health and smile. She said “Everyone deserves a smile that they can be proud of and that reflects their shining personality.” She will make an amazing Hygienist one day!
Andrea grew up in Gilroy, CA, the garlic capital of the world! She and her fiance, Austin moved to Reno in Feb of 2022 and we were lucky enough to have her join our team after being in the dental field for 13 years! Andrea spends her days off enjoying her coffee in bed alongside her 2 cats, getting takeout and catching some of the beautiful Nevada sunshine. Her favorite part about working in dentistry is establishing relationships with her patients and being a part of their smile transformations, big or small. She has always loved working with her hands so, having the chance to actually help sculpt teeth makes her feel fulfilled.
Ashley has the longest history in our office being the daughter of the previous owner, Dr. Gregory Pisani. So, you could say that she has worked with teeth her whole life! She is a native Nevadan and the lucky mom to two boys, ages 2.5 years and 6 months and loves the idea of raising her boys exactly where she and her husband grew up! She most loves her days off in the summertime when she can go hiking and spending time in the afternoon hanging out on the beaches in Tahoe. Wintertime, on the other hand, you can find her hanging with her husband and boys in the snow skiing (especially as the boys get older). Ashley loves being able to connect and help the public with their dental health. Even if she only spends an hour with them, she loves getting the chance to help them leave better than they did when they first entered her chair.
Tami has been in the dental field for over 30 years in multiple different specialities. She grew up in Southern California and moved to Reno in her early 20s to raise her two kids, Tori and Cade with her husband, Marty. She loves being able to help create healthy smiles among her patients and if we are having a bad day, she is the first one in the office we go to to make us smile! Tami is not normally very spontaneous but, in a weekend leadership course a few years ago, she listened to the speaker and went and bought a new car (she says she won’t speak about the terrible interest rate she got)!
Angel grew up in Woodland, CA and started her career in teeth 7 years ago. In 2018, she and her son, Bennet moved to Reno and joined our team. Angel loves that in dentistry, she can help give her patients their confidence back through their smiles. She loves getting to be artistic with our cases and giving patients a positive experience. She feels so rewarded when she hears patients say “Wow, that really wasn’t that bad”. Angel is the definition of a true country girl; she spends most of her days off either planning her wedding or riding her beautiful horses around the Nevada Desert with her son and fiance, Donnie. She always says that if she didn’t live in Nevada, she would likely move to Texas (Because everything is better in Texas!).
Shelsea has worked in the dental field for over 10 years, sharing her knowledge with all of us at Brooks Family Dental. She gained interest in dentistry after seeing the morale boost redoing one’s teeth can give. Shelsea saw this first-hand in her mom. She’s been hooked ever since, and you can feel this passion.
Originally from Northern Nevada, Shelsea enjoys all that this part of the country offers. You can find her and her husband enjoying Tahoe in the summer, hanging with their dog Hayley, or trying out one of their favorite restaurants(Ohana Sushi or Pancho & Willey’s).
Her favorite holiday is July 4th, which just so happens to be her birthday AND wedding anniversary. Runner up is Thanksgiving.
Around the office, Shelsea remembers everything. She’ll remember the most amazing facts, and details about patients, preferences and family.
