Sandy has been a practicing dental assistant for over 30 years, and has worked for Dr. Krumholz since 2009. One of her favorite things about this practice is “the relationships I have built with patients over the years.

I love hearing about patients’ life milestones: children going off to school, getting married and having children, vacations…” Sandy loves spending time with her three grown children and her new granddaughter. When not at the office, Sandy enjoys traveling, gardening, cooking and entertaining. She loves to explore the city, walking or biking around the lakes.
