Kisha Team Member


Kisha has been in the dental field since 1989. In 1997, she met and became a dedicated assistant to Dr. Jeffery Linden. Together, they have developed an assisting technique which allows Dr. Linden to stay focused on the microscopic areas of the tooth while his assistant passes him the necessary instruments. Assisting in several different fields of dentistry has enabled Kisha to utilize her skills as an excellent endodontic assistant. Kisha prides herself with being compassionate and understanding with the patients, and her skills allow efficiency to take place during all endodontic procedures. When Kisha is not assisting in her craft, she values her time with her two beautiful daughters.
