Meet the Team
Cindy - Registered Dental Hygienist
I first became inspired to go into dental hygiene as a result of encouragement by my orthodontist while in high school. I attended La Sierra College for the hygiene prerequisites and then to Loma Linda University, School of Dentistry, Dental Hygiene program where I received a B.S. in Dental Hygiene in 1981. I then moved to the Sacramento area and started my Hygiene career.
The aspect of practicing hygiene I like best, and is the most rewarding, is the long term relationships created with my patients that I care for. It has been exciting for me to get to know the Craftsman patient family and I am so lucky they have welcomed me with open arms.
I am happy to say my family is my full time hobby. My husband, Steve, is an Orthodontist. We have 2 sons, one in college and one in high school. Both boys are pitchers and keep us very busy with their baseball games. It’s a “busyness” I thoroughly enjoy!
DeAnna - Receptionist/Registered Dental Assistant
DeAnna has been working with Dr. Mike & Shari Fife since 2006 after graduating from dental assisting school. She really enjoys making our patients feel warm and welcome at our practice as well as giving them a positive outlook on their dental treatment.
On her off time, DeAnna enjoys spending time with her husband Brandon, and their kids, Deklen and Dahlia. You can always find them on an adventure, whether it be on the boat at the lake, camping, fishing, car shows or on a road trip. She enjoys all outdoor activities. Any time spent with family is a good time.
