Heidi Lawler - Hygienist
My name is Heidi Lawler and I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Dental Hygiene. I moved to Arizona shortly after graduation to work as a clinical instructor of Dental Hygiene at Northern Arizona University, where I also obtained a certification to administer local anesthesia. While continuing my education at NAU, I discovered that practicing dental hygiene was my true passion, and immediately joined Dr. Moore’s dental team in 1980, where I joyfully continue to help patients. It is wonderful to be a part of a practice that allows me to continue furthering my education in order to employ the latest technology, materials, and procedures to ensure all patients obtain the smile they deserve. In my 31 years of practicing with Dr. Moore, I have been dedicated to helping patients maintain healthy oral hygiene, while also ensuring that they receive a pleasant personal experience. It is exciting to involve patients in taking steps to not only make their smiles healthy, but to make them gorgeous too! On a personal note, I love exercising, running, hiking, traveling, waterskiing and spending time with my husband, Tommy, and our two children, Matthew and Stephanie, who both recently graduated from the University of Arizona and are now continuing with their career choices.
Marilyn Donkersley - Office Coordinator & Dental Assistant
Hi, I am Dr. Moore's Office Coordinator, primary cosmetic assistant, and lab case director. I have been assisting since I graduated from high school in Ventura, California. I was trained by a USC dentist and found that I really loved the profession. I attended USC for two years and during that time I also dental assisted at the Dental School. In 1975, I moved to Arizona and appreciated all the rural beauty it had to offer. I lived on the Verde River in Camp Verde for 25 years and, with my husband, raised two daughters. We enjoyed the rural lifestyle and the small community for years. I have worked with Dr. Moore for 34 years, starting in 1977. I love my work and the patients I work with. Most of my days are spent planning our more extensive restorative and aesthetic cases with Dr. Moore. Over the years we have attended many dental continuing education classes together so that I can always be informed about new products, materials and ideas in dentistry. Most importantly, I would say that my years of experience and education have given me a good eye for the smile design makeovers, assuring the best aesthetic results for you. I will be glad and proud to show you Dr. Moore's dental photo gallery of before and after smiles.
Janet Rogers - Dental Assistant
My name is Janet Rogers. I am a chair-side dental assistant. I have been an assistant since January 1997,and have worked in this office since July of 2005. I enjoy being an assistant because I love working with people. I like the interactions of everyone involved. Every situation is different. I did not choose dentistry as an occupation; it chose me. I have always been in the medical field. I found the work to be educational and fascinating. As fate would have it, I was invited to work at a dental practice. I immediately fell in love with my new career. I am very pleased to be working with Dr. Moore and the staff. Cosmetic dentistry is thrilling. Seeing the transformations and how happy people are with their new look is very gratifying. I am a team player, hard working, and easy to talk to. So many people are anxious when going to the dentist. I try to make them as comfortable as possible while they are in my care. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, gardening, traveling, creating stained glass, and taking classes.

I am excited to offer you an in-depth review of your recommended treatment, insuring that you understand and are comfortable with all treatment to be performed, as well as helping you find the best payment options to meet your individual needs.

We have been truly blessed and are so grateful for the opportunities we have been given. I enjoy expanding my personal knowledge, event planning, music, cooking, going to the lake, and the outdoors, but most of all spending time with my family and friends.
