Erika Lazo

Office Manager

My name is Erika I am and only child of a single mother and a proud mother 2, 21, and 24 my world. I became a mother at a young age, working graveyard as a teller at a gas station an struggling to support my kids. And then one day I asked my kids. And then one day I asked myself if I wanted to be one of bunch or one of a kind, So I decided to be one of a kind. I applied for a receptionist position not knowing anything about dentistry and I was blessed to find honest people willing to mentor me, they seen my drive and hunger of a fuller future for myself. I have done it all from receptions, clerk, biller and achieved the manager position. I didn't only find a career in dentistry, but the most important part is that dentistry allows me to what I love to do and that is to help people. I have completed 3 years in business management . I have 1 more year to finish and cannot be more proud of what I have accomplished. I am a firm believer of "Don't let no one tell you can't do it", there 's always a way and good people willing to help.
