Heidi Bingham – Office Coordinator
Heidi was born and raised in the beautiful mountain state of Utah. She’s the fourth child of five, with two sisters and two brothers.
She spent most of her childhood at the ice rink, starting when she was six. That year, she got a pair of ice skates for Christmas, and immediately signed up for lessons. Heidi competed all over the US, eventually turning professional.
After serving a church welfare service mission to Bangkok, Thailand, she decided to take an adventure down to Arizona. The sun and heat made for quite a change from the mountains of Utah, but she came to love Arizona and now calls it home. She can even be found wearing a long sleeve shirt in 100-degree weather!
Heidi loves smiles. In fact, a great smile was the first thing she noticed about her husband when they first met. You can tell so much about a person from their expressions. That’s one of the major reasons she went into dentistry: to help people love their smile and love to smile.
She also loves working with such an amazing team. She gets to laugh, to have fun every day, and to know and meet new people. Being at the front desk is really where she shines. It’s there that she can make a difference by helping patients feel comfortable from the moment they call or walk through the front door.
Outside of work, family is her number one priority. Together they camp, go to the beach, listen to loud music, eat, and play cards. Heidi has four sons, loves being a grandma, and has been married to her best friend for over twenty-five years. Heidi is their number one fan, and they are hers. She wouldn’t be where she is without them.
Sonia – Dental Hygienist
Sonia is one of our talented and friendly dental hygienists.
She has lived in Arizona for most of her life, despite having moved a lot. There was a period of time when she actually attended a different school every year. This early life experience means that she doesn’t have a single shy bone in her body. As a hygienist, she uses this natural magnetism to help patients feel both welcomed and comfortable in our office.
She has been a dental hygienist since 2000, and absolutely cannot believe how quickly that time has gone by. Time flies when you love what you do, and Sonia certainly does. She loves the dental team, she loves the patients, and she loves that the office is always on the cutting edge of quality treatment and technology.
Sonia takes great pride in providing the best possible service and experience to each individual patient, and for good reason. She’s spectacular at establishing trust and building meaningful relationships with everyone she meets.
She is also passionate about dental education. Her top priority is to help patients maintain their ideal dental health through education and positive coaching.
Outside of work, Sonia’s number one favorite thing is spending quality time with her two daughters, her family, and her friends. She loves everything about the outdoors, especially when travel is involved. Even just a weekend getaway up to the mountains or down to the ocean is a welcome pleasure.
Life is a grand adventure, and so is everything in it, no matter how small. Whether it’s a huge rodeo or a tiny local parade, Sonia wants to be out in it, living life as best she can. That includes spontaneous road trips, service opportunities, camping, fishing, live music, trail running, hiking, reading, a good chocolate malt, and looking for the most amazing food at local dives.

Raven Moran, Dental Assistant
Raven is originally from Southern California, but moved to Gilbert, AZ in 2004. She went to Basha High School, where she graduated in 2011. Soon after, she decided to follow a passion for dentistry that she has had since she was a child. She became a dental assistant in 2012. One of the many things she loves about dentistry is the ability to make a positive difference in an individual’s life through education!
Outside of work, Raven enjoys spending time with close friends and family. She also loves spending time with her daughter, who was born in April, 2018. Raven considers her daughter as a “miracle child,” and she loves watching her grow every day! Currently, their obsession is watching Disney movies. Their favorite so far has been “Coco”!
