I have so many good things to say about my experience so far. The space is clean and cozy. All the employees are nice and communicative. The dentist is extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to listen to any concerns and also explains every step during the visit.

Office Manager

I live in San Luis Obispo, CA. I am married to my favorite person, Dr. Eric Walters, and I am a mom to an amazing, smart, and creative daughter, Clara. I am also a dog mom to Sadie and a cat mom to Lola.

Although I married into dentistry, I love the health and wellness field. The ability to help educate patients and encourage them to take care of themselves and live their healthiest lives is genuinely satisfying.

As an ofice manager, I get to meet amazing people and provide them with a dental experience that is truly special. At Islay Hill Dentistry Co.Visit our homepage, we embrace the fact that everyone is unique and deserves a personalized experience.

When away from dentistry, I love spending time with my family and my animals. I dabble in arts, crafts, and design. I love being outside and exploring the beautiful Central Coast. I also enjoy learning, reading, and attending concerts with my husband.

Registered Dental Assistant

I was born in Michigan and lived up and down the East Coast until moving to San Luis Obispo County in 2008. I have three amazing children and one spectacular grandson.

I have been interested in dentistry since I was a toddler playing with my Dentist Drill and Fill Play-Doh set! I worked as a surgical assistant for about 15 years. I then decided to go back to school and become a registered dental assistant.

I have always enjoyed getting to know the patients, building trusting relationships, and witnessing people smile again!

As someone who suffers from dental anxiety, I’m able to relate to others and help them overcome this fear.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to plays, kayaking, and hiking!
