Luz Nunez, DA
Practice Coordinator/Dental Assistant
Luz joined our office in January of 2011, upon graduating from Fortis College in Phoenix. Over the years, she has functioned as Lead Dental Assistant, Practice Receptionist and Insurance Coordinator. She has been an important part in keeping the team strong through her commitment and versatility. During the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Luz was instrumental in keeping our office up and running. This allowed our patients access to our team, despite Government shut-downs. Her fluent Spanish-speaking skills also make her a very critical member of the team. Luz is one of the most committed and dependable team members we have ever had at our office, and we value her tremendously for that but don't let her quiet nature fool you. She is an incredibly funny person and a down-to-earth personality.
When she's not at the office, Luz enjoys going hiking, shopping, traveling and spending time with her family and friends.
When asked: "What's your favorite holiday?" , she responds, "Thanksgiving, because you get a 4-day weekend!"
Samantha is Dr. Reyes' "mini-me" who joins our practice in a full time capacity during the summers in order to help us expedite administrative, front office and marketing projects. Under the guidance of Dr. Reyes and office staff, she aids in completing all those projects that seem to get away from us including data entry, bookkeeping, data analysis, reports, filing, and patient recall. Miss Samantha once planned on becoming a veterinarian but is now seriously considering following in her mother's footsteps in becoming a dentist and business owner. Her experience with us will serve her well as she lays down a foundation for her future.
Samantha enjoys sports, reading, writing stories, dancing and spending time with friends and family. She is involved in Club and Varsity swimming, Varsity Ballroom, Winter Guard, National Honor Society, and Math Team. She enjoys horseback riding and dreams of owning her own ranch some day.
When asked: "Who's your favorite parent?" , she responds with a smile. :)
