As dental assistant, Tessa sterilizes instruments, prepares the work area for procedures, and assists the dentist with procedures. She loves interacting with patients and making them feel comfortable as she assists with their cleanings and procedures. She enjoys the people she works with at Reed Family Dental and being appreciated in the office.

When not working, Tessa spends time with her family, including her husband Jeff, daughter Tayvah and son Jayvan. She also enjoys traveling and someday would love to travel to Italy.
