Meet The Team


Dental Hygienist

Eriona was born in Albania and moved to Cleveland Ohio in 1997 before relocating to Arizona. In her cross cultural world, she speaks five languages fluently. Whether she in Albania, Italy, Romania, Turkey or the grand ol’ U.S.A, she can speak like a native with an accent that makes her even more fun to talk to. Eriona earned her Bachelors in accounting from Baldwin-Wallace University in Ohio. Her command of numbers found its expression in her first job as a math tutor. Her equal command of languages also created opportunities to work as a translator. Eriona’s passion is expressed in serving others in the world of dentistry. In 2002, she received her hygiene degree and began working shortly after.

Eriona continued her education into new sciences such as myofunctional therapy. This is the science of how the muscle patterns of the face impact the development and function of the teeth. Her ever-expanding knowledge has established a desire to not only perform these life changing procedures, but to teach them to other hygienists as well.

Eriona enjoys reading the classics, traveling (Italy being a favorite), good movies, getting alone with the road on long runs and clearing her head through yoga. Eriona says that she is defined by her absolute passion for her work and seeing the health and life changing impact it has on those she has come to care a great deal about – her patients.
