I graduated from Pima Community College Dental Hygiene program and have been a dental hygienist for 19 years. My entire career has been spent at Dedicated Dental because I love the people I work with and the amazing patients I get to help every day. I am happy to have such incredible relationships with each of my patients and I take pride in being able to provide quality dental care for each and every person I treat. I am a member of the Arizona Dental Association, and am laser certified through Phoenix College. When I am not working, I enjoy baking, ceramics, photography and spending time with my pets.
I love to serve and help people. I believe in leading patients to success with knowledge and help them save money. And most important, to help them obtain healthy gums for beautiful expression of the universal language – their smile! So it should be no surprise that I have deeply enjoyed my job as a dental hygienist for the past 11 years.
My patients describe me as friendly, outgoing and kind with a sense of humor. In my free time, I enjoy exercising.
I am focused on providing exceptional patient care and education and feel privileged and grateful to provide these services in private practice and community service.
I graduated from Pima Community College in 1995 as a Registered Dental Hygienist and also hold a Dental Laser Certification from Phoenix College. I have over 41 years of dental experience. I also received Intensive Interactive Special Needs Training by the American Dental Association thru the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
I enjoy participating in community events that bring awareness to mental and physical health. I also enjoy hiking, biking, cooking, gardening and attending different professional baseball fields each year. My favorite past time is spent with my granddaughters, Madelynn and Melina.
I am the Marketing Director in charge of oversight for both offices. I work with many outside organizations in order to help them understand the services provided by Dedicated Dental.
I have been with Dedicated Dental for 13 years but before that I worked as a General Manager with American Golf Corporation and TROON Golf Management and as a Sales Manager for COORS Brewery during the 80’s in San Antonio, Texas.
I was born in Texas so I learned how to hunt and fish at a very early age and have had the opportunity to fish with many professional fishermen, like Kevin VanDam, Larry Nixon and Jimmy Houston. I currently play golf with three different golf associations: Southern Arizona Men’s, Mexican American Golf and Tucson Estates Men’s and have won many Gold Medals playing in the Senior Olympics in Basketball and Golf. I also love to cook and truly believe my Tex-Mex is the absolute best!
I have been a proud member of the dental profession for over thirty-one years. I earned my dental assistant certification from Pima Medical Institute and my hygiene certification from Pima Community College.
I have been a member of the Dedicated Dental family since 2003 and I greatly enjoy what I do because it provides a great service to the Tucson community. I appreciate all of my patients and consider them my friends. Knowing that my patients leave my chair with a brighter and healthier smile provides me a great sense of satisfaction.
When I am not helping patients, I enjoy spending time with my family, listening to music and going to the movies.

Dentist – DMD
I knew in the 5th grade it was my destiny to become a dentist.
I grew up in Tucson and went to high school and Tucson High where I won the state championshio title as a wrestler. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Arizona and went on to receive my DMD from the College of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. I have been practicing in the “Old Pueblo” for almost thirty years, and am truly blessed to be respected by my peers and the local community.
I have always operated with integrity, professionalism and dedication to my clients and am proud to have a team of employees who work hard to create a warm and friendly atmosphere where patients are comfortable and well-cared for.
I love my work and the opportunity it affords me to serve the community I grew up in and love. I currently serve on the Hispanic Advisory Committee for the athletic department at the UofA.
Dr. Daniel Rosales
Dentist – DMD
I realized in junior high school all I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a dentist. It wasn’t the most popular career choice but I couldn’t wait to finally achieve my dreams!
After finishing high school I enrolled at the University of Arizona, where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in microbiology. I received my DMD from Harvard School of Dental Medicine,and stayed in Brocton, Massachusetts to complete my residency and follow my dreams.
I have been a dentist for 17 years, and have practiced here in Tucson for over 12 years. I truly love practicing dentistry, especially when I can bring a level of comfort to patients who are frightened. I am known as the dentist who is always smiling, gentle and patient.
