In my leisure time I enjoy water skiing, motorcycling, bicycling, woodworking, and being a Shrine clown.” –Dr. Biede

I moved to Arizona in 1981 from Southern California. Dr. Biede and I have known each other since we were 18 and 19 years old. We married in 1981 and joined our families together. We have a “blended family” of yours, mine, and ours! We have a total of 5 children. We have a granddaughter and three grandsons, as well as numerous grand dogs and grand cats. I stayed at home for several years to raise our children and did volunteer work in our children’s schools, church, and community. I love gardening which is a real challenge here, so my husband built me a greenhouse to raise our vegetables and flowers. We are active in the Shrine and belong to the motorcycle unit and enjoy motorcycle touring and Western dancing. I enjoy working in the office and I am very proud of our dental team. They are all exceptional people.
I moved to Arizona in 1964. I started in dentistry in 1983. I have been with Dr. Biede since July 2003 and am very proud to be part of his team. I have worked in both general dentistry and periodontal dentistry in the front office and back office. I have a son and daughter-in-law who have blessed me with 2 grandchildren who are the joy of my life. I’m married to my “Prince Charming” and the love of my life. I love to read, garden, cook, and craft.
I was born and raised in Tucson. I have four beautiful children: 2 daughters and 2 sons. I am blessed to be employed by Dr. Biede and Carla. I really love my job. I have been with Dr. Biede since March 2009. My experience has been in geriatrics, internal medicine, pediatrics, chiropractic, and massage therapy. I have learned a lot since I have been with Dr. Biede and I have enjoyed every minute. This is my second family in my home away from home. In my spare time, I love to go to the movies with my family, spend time at the zoo and museums, and do other activities going on around town.
I’ve been in the beautiful Tucson community for 33 years. I obtained my dental assisting certification from Pima Medical Institute along with an associate’s degree from Pima Community College. I have been a dental assistant for fifteen years. I absolutely enjoy my profession. When I’m not working, I spend my free time in the gym working out. I have one daughter who also keeps me busy with softball and marching band. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
I am so thankful I found a job I love! I am a registered dental hygienist. I am a 2001 graduate of Pima Community College. I was a career student for a while, so I have a total of 3 degrees. I spend my free time with my family enjoying the outdoors hiking around Tucson where I’ve lived since 2002 and loving every minute. I have been with Dr. Biede since 2003 and very proud to be part of his team in the dental community. Dr. Biede and I work toward the same goals when taking care of our patients: for them to be happy and healthy.
I love dental hygiene! I am a Pima Community College graduate and have been blessed to work with Dr. Biede since 1998. My husband and I are both Arizona natives. We reside in beautiful St. David with our four amazing children. My goal is to treat each of my patients as if they were family. I enjoy seeing each and every one, whether their faces are familiar or brand new!
