Hi, I’m Amanda. I was born and raised in Columbus, and I graduated from Dental Assisting School in 2011. Since graduating, I have obtained my Radiology license and CPR Certification. I love dentistry and everything about it. I have been in dentistry for 7 years and I couldn’t think of another profession I’d rather be in. It is very rewarding for me to see a patient walk out of the doors with a smile on their face. I started at Fishinger Dental June 2018. When I am not working, I enjoy making memories with my daughter Dallas, family and friends, or attending any country concert.
