  • Joycelyn | RDA

    Joycelyn graduated from Concorde Career College in 2017 and has been with Alvarado Family Dentistry since 2018. She likes to say that she didn’t choose the dental assistant life, it chose her. The best part of her job is being able to take someone out of pain and bring a smile to their face in just one appointment.
