As a dental hygienist, it has been a privilege to work with Dr. Sharkey for 16 years. As he does, I care and respect each of our patients. Their overall health is paramount, as we treat each ones needs thoroughly and gently. We as coworkers are like family and coming to work is a joy!

Office Manager

I have happily worked for Dr. Sharkey for 21 years. I started as a front desk receptionist. With Dr. Sharkey’s encouragement, I decided to go to Howard County Community College, for my Dental Assistance certificate and became a Dental Radiation Technologist. I am now the Office manager. Coming to work never feels like a job. They are my family. From the people I work with, to patients we treasure..

I joined Dr. Sharkey and his team May 2011, after being a stay at home Mom for 4 years. Coming here with no previous dental practice knowledge. I was given the opportunity to train and I have grown so much. I enjoy my working relationship with all of our wonderful patients and I love my work family.

I began working with Dr. Sharkey and his staff in May 2021, and it has been the most wonderful experience. I have genuinely loved working with Dr. Sharkey and all of my colleagues. Also, the patients here are truly the best! Everyone here is like family and are treated as such. I look forward to coming to work every day. Regarding my dental experience, I received my Dental Assistant certification and MD State Radiology license through the DATS program in 2019. In my spare time, I enjoy being outside in nature (walking, hiking, and running in particular), reading books, and playing with my sweet cat, Jaspurr.
