About Your Team

Anna Jimenez - Registered Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in Santa Fe. My husband and I are proud parents of three beautiful boys; Dominic, Damian and Dillon. I graduated with my Dental Hygiene degree in 2013 and have been practicing as a registered dental hygienist since. I love what I do because it allows me to interact directly with patients, and help them achieve good oral and overall health. I am thankful I am a member of the team here at Alegre Dental Petroglyphs where quality and professional care are very important to us. I look forward to meeting you!

Betsy Goodman - Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated (Summa Cum Laude) from UMN in 2012 and I got my BSDH. I love working with people and educating them about dental health and inspiring them to be healthier. I love seeing people make small positive changes and I love connecting with my patients and seeing them grow and change through the years I’ve been at Alegre Dental Petroglyphs. When I’m not working, I love having fun with my 3 kids, traveling or just hanging out watching movies or TV shows. I enjoy yoga and relaxing with my 2 dogs, 2 cats and 2 fish!

Samantha Slater - Dental Assistant

I received my Dental Assisting degree from Pima Medical Institute. I love being able to be part of helping patients get their smiles back. I enjoy constantly learning new things in dentistry because it’s always changing. I meet new people everyday and each situation is different and it’s rewarding to see the patients happy with the final result. Outside of work, i enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and being able to be goofy dancing under the electric sky!

Shaundine James - Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of New Mexico. I love being a dental hygienist because I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and I get to do what I love help patients achieve a healthy confident smile. Its also very rewarding when you have a patient that has dental anxiety and you are able to help them overcome their anxiety. I love being my kid’s main cheerleader, I enjoy an exercise challenge and can spend countless hours on Pinterest.

Sylvia Smith - Practice Manager of Operations

I am a proud mother of two children, Kimberly and Jacob. I originally went to Pima Medical Institute for Dental Assisting and assisted for 14 years. I then received my business degree in '07 and pursued my management career. My free time is spent enjoying my family and being outdoors. I love and enjoy the dental field and especially enjoy meeting new people and creating relationships that last for many years.
