Meet the Team

We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Sterilization Specialist

I help our office run efficiently and keep instruments sterilized and in proper working order, in addition to keeping all exam rooms spotless and well stocked. I love working with our patients and enjoy supporting our team in encouraging good dental health. Most importantly, I want each patient to have a wonderful dental experience.  At home, I enjoy serving my husband and family, working in my church, and reading.


Dental Assistant

I started working in a dental lab when I was 16 and realized my passion for dentistry. I started training to become a chairside assistant and joined Dr. McDonald’s team in 2009. I enjoy getting to know our patients and helping them have a positive, comfortable dental experience. I am the mother of six children, but my true love is my beautiful grandchildren. I enjoy sewing and crocheting and am active in scouting, having received the Silver Beaver volunteer award.


Registered Dental Hygienist

Making sure my patients leave the office with a clean smile and the education they need to maintain that smile are my top priorities as a hygienist. I enjoy building relationships with my patients and helping them have a comfortable dental experience.  Born and raised in upstate New York, I now live in the Las Vegas area with my husband of 26 years and our two children. In my free time I enjoy cycling and running.

Mari Jo

Registered Dental Hygienist

My dental career began in 1989 and I was fortunate enough to join Dr. McDonald’s team in 2004. I love our patients! Every day I learn from them, and I truly believe that helping with their dental hygiene is a privilege and honor. I am a grandmother of two girls and a mother of two children. When I’m not in the office, I love playing golf with my husband and friends, practicing Yoga, and serving in my church.


Office Manager/Front Office

As the first person our patients meet when they come into the office, I am sure to greet everyone with a friendly smile. I assist our patients with all their scheduling, registration, and insurance/financial needs, and make sure our office runs smoothly from day to day. I greatly respect Dr. McDonald for his honesty and integrity as he provides quality dental care for each of his patients. I also like working with the rest of our team and consider all of them to be family. In my spare time, I love being with my family, especially my two grandchildren. I enjoy serving in my church and community, as well as cooking, reading, gardening, and quilting.


Front Desk Specialist/Dental Assistant

I began working for Dr. McDonald in 2009, but my experience in dentistry goes back over 30 years. I am here to help our patients by scheduling appointments, confirming insurance benefits, and assisting when needed. I truly enjoy working with such a great group of people, from my fellow staff members to all our amazing patients. I grew up right here in Las Vegas. My husband and I have three grown children and one grandchild. In my free time, I play tennis and belong to a book club.
