Originally from Long Island, New York, Doria moved to NM in 1998 to attend the UNM Dental Hygiene Program. She completed her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene, graduating with honors in 2003. Doria joined Uptown Dental Associates in 2004 and holds the title of longest-term employee in the practice, as well as being our lead hygienist. She’s awesome. She has an incredible ability to clean teeth quickly (yet thoroughly!) and is one of our 4 hygienists who perform accelerated hygiene, meaning that she works with an assistant to help make your appointment as efficient as possible. In her free time, Doria is an incredibly devoted mother to her mini-me, Tara.
