Angela bearss, Dental Assistant

 I grew up in Lakeview / Ft. Oglethorpe, Georgia.  I went to Lakeview High School and on to Chattanooga State for Dental Assisting training.  I realized early on that I was a caretaker.  So, Dental Assisting has been a good fit for me.  I was married and raised two boys.  My oldest is a Fireman and the younger is an Electronics Engineer.  They both live in Austin, Texas.  I enjoy baking, crocheting, crafting and reading.
