Linda Bishop

Dental Assistant

I have worked for Reavley Dental for 25 years. My first experience with dentistry was assisting dentists in a remote village in Mexico. In 1975 I graduated from Lamar High School. I have had many opportunities to enhance my knowledge and skills in dentisty, including attending the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. In previous years I have worked as a bookkeeper, had a licensed daycare in my home, and experienced serving food on roller skates while working as a carhop at Sonic. My free time is spent gardening; landscaping, birdwatching, and going on road trips with friends. Also love spending time with family, especially my 10 grandchildren, and am looking forward to being involved in the new church my husband is pastoring. My goal and favorite part of dentistry is helping our patients feel comfortable, cared for, and well-informed about their dental health, and how it affects their overall health.
