Dental Office Manager
Hello there! I’m Aziza, Office Manager at Scottsdale Family Dentistry and Orthodontics.
I’m originally from Morocco and have been here for 20 years. I’ve been married to an amazing husband from Bosnia and we both have an 18-year-old daughter who is attending ASU to enter the medical field.
My first job was as a dental assistant in Chicago 13 years ago and I’m a graduate of Apollo College in Phoenix for Dental Assisting (x-ray certified) as well as 2 years of college for computer science at Casablanca University.
I believe that patient education starts in the front office, then goes back to the back office where the patient rooms are, and finally ends up in the front office. I educate patients about their dental insurance coverage, and make sure they don’t get any financial surprises for services. We are a very friendly team to work with, honest and care about our patients.
In my spare time and home time, I’m always cooking new recipes, entertaining friends and family and traveling.
Registered Dental Hygienist
It all began the day I came home with a mouth full of metal and these strange things they called braces. I quickly began to realize the way I used to take care of my teeth wouldn’t cut it anymore, or should I say the lack of. I used to think a quick brush and the occasional floss did the trick. Wrong. Now, it took a lot more time and effort to brush and floss around these big metal brackets. So, here’s where it all started. I learned why it is so important to take care of your mouth, to brush and to floss. I learned the importance of oral health is greatly underestimated by the general population and why I want to help make a difference. My passion is to educate my patients, family, and friends on the importance of oral health and to promote a healthy mouth as well as lifestyle. Not only did having braces help straighten out my teeth, but they helped straighten out my purpose in life.
I got my CDA from Carrington college in 2013. I am passionate about the education for people and the care of their mouth. Working as a dental assistant and hygiene assistant allows me, to be versatile in my ability to help people understand, the procedures, and how caring for your mouth is important.
In my spare time I love to read, watch movies, and trying new things.
“My love for the dental field began my senior year of high school when I got braces. Ever since then, I became intrigued with the medical science within the world of dentistry. I also found it interesting to see how a team must work together in all aspects in order to provide the best care for patients. Ever since I graduated from Carrington College in 2016, I have been seizing any opportunity that could possibly help me grow in knowledge in this field.
I Am a Arizona Native and when I have spare time you will find me listening to music, going to concerts, reading and spending time with my family and friends!”
