Cathy Ann – Dental Practice Manager of Rafi Dental Group
Cathy Ann chose to be in the dental field because she wanted to help people with their oral health. She once had a dental emergency and was in so much pain and had to go to a dental office for an emergency visit, only to leave without being treated due to the lack of care she received from the dental office she went to. She then decided to go into the Dental Assisting program at the College of Southern Nevada where she completed and obtained an Associates Degree Dental Assisting Program in 2004.
She is a passionate advocate for patients and will make sure that her patients are well- informed before making any decisions when it comes to their oral health. Cathy is a firm believer that if you do the right things for the right reasons, all else will fall into place.
Cathy has been in the dental field since 2003. She has also helped other offices as a dental consultant to various offices between Orange County, CA and Las Vegas, NV. She is also an active member of the AADOM; American Association of Dental Office Managers.
Cathy is a proud US Navy mom. Her daughter is currently an active US Navy Petty Officer. During her free time, she loves going to the movies, trying out new restaurants, cooking, art projects, event-planning, traveling and or just relaxing at the beach with her Pekingese-Beagle mixed dog she adopted in 2014 from the NVSPCA, named Chance.
