This is where she developed a growing love for dentistry and was nurtured and encouraged by Dr. Fojas, staff, and friends to take classes to receive specific certifications to restore teeth. She completed her training at The Ohio State University in 2009 and received an Expanded Function Dental Auxiliary (EFDA) certification from the Ohio Dental Board.

As such she can place restorative white and silver fillings. She is dedicated to the same TLC and aesthetics as the Doctor, and fully enjoys her career. She also received her coronal polish certification while studying at OSU. After some kicking and screaming, Dr. Fojas donated his time at the EFDA Clinic and she restored three of HIS teeth. The running joke at the office is that she slapped him around the EFDA clinic to make sure he was numb.
