Terri - Hygienist
I've been a registered Dental Hygienist since 1985 and I love working with people of all ages. I lived in California before moving to Ashburn in 2003 with my husband and two daughters. I have worked for Dr. Rothschild for the past five years and have had a blast throughout the entirety. Whenever I am not spending time with the family, I enjoy traveling, especially down to Blacksburg, to root for the Hokies.
Denise - Hygienist
Having graduated from the University of Hawaii over 25 years ago with my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene, I enjoy working with patients of all ages helping them achieve optimal oral health. As a United States Navy veteran, I have traveled from the East to West coast, including Alaska and Hawaii. I settled in Virginia some 20+ years ago with my husband and now college-age children. I live on a small farm in Western Loudoun with four dogs, two kitties, and three horses. I am a member of the Virginia Dental Hygienist Association, the American Dental Hygiene Association, and the Dental Hygiene Loudoun Study Club. For those times when “the farm” isn’t taking up those extra hours, I enjoy spending a night out with the family at either the Blue Ridge Grill or the Berryville Grill. Feeling very blessed to live and work in such a beautiful area. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading a good book, going for long walks, and simply enjoying time outdoors.
Sandra - Dental Assistant & Front Desk
I've lived in Virginia for most of my life and have worked for Dr. Rothschild as a dental assistant and a business manager for over 25 years. Dentistry has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my life outside of family and my love for animals. Each day I greet patients, provide tips on dental care and assistant with cleanings and orthodontic work. It brings a smile to my face when I see our patients walk out with a clean, healthy smile each day. If you are looking for a respectable and honest dentist with a good sense of humor and a great staff, come on by. Whenever I have free time, you can find me spending some time with the family in Purcellville, or heading to the bay area to sample my favorite food - Maryland crab.
Michelle - Front Desk
Before coming to Rothschild Dental, I worked for 24 years in an administrative and medical language specialist role, and now I bring that wealth of experience to the front desk at Dr. Rothschild's office.
When I'm not at the dental office, I love to spend time with my family and enjoy cooking all kinds of different foods for them. I also enjoy learning about wine and visiting many Virginia wineries.
