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!

I graduated from western career college for dental assisting in 1991 after finishing my studies for microbiology at CSU Sacramento. I was Dr. Michael Fife's very first dental assistant when he finished dental school in the early 1990's. I went on to further my career by receiving certificates from both Pride Institute in the San Francisco Bay Area and The Center for Professional Development in Scottsdale Arizona. I have genuine love for dentistry and for helping people anyway that I can to achieve their best self, including their brightest smile…
Outside the office, I enjoy my family. I have 1 adult son. I enjoy my church, cooking, dancing, and interior design. I do my best to make every day a positive experience.
A bright and healthy smile Transcends all language barriers.

I found out about Craftsman Dental from my father. At the time I was looking for a dentist for me and my 9 year old daughter. My daughter was very scared of the dentist and I was looking for a place that would be a positive experience for her. Craftsman Dental turned out to be that place...by Michelle F.
