Andrea joined Balsam Dental as a Dental Assistant in 1993, which was her first job in the dental field!
"This was the best decision I have ever made, because it has opened many doors for me to expand and grow in dentistry". Practicing as a Level II Dental Assistant, with some of the most amazing dentists, Andrea says "my knowledge in dentistry has grown tremendously since Dr. Shinde took over the practice. I really enjoy my job."
In Andrea's spare time, she enjoys decorating and reading, but "being in Church is the highlight of my life. Every day I thank God for the gift of life and I will never take it for granted". Andrea has two children and one grandson that keep her busy outside of the office. She enjoys traveling with her sisters at least once a year, and says "I'm not sure where life will take me, but dentistry will always be a part of my life".
