Welcome to Pinnacle Peak Family Dentistry, Scottsdale AZ

Our Team

    Monica Maldonado-Baugh

    Registered Dental Hygienist

    I have been a dental hygienist for 10 years and practiced as a dental assistant for several years prior. My favorite part of being a dental hygienist is helping our patients improve their dental health. By providing education and a caring gentle touch, I can support you in achieving a beautiful and healthy smile.
    I am a native of Phoenix and enjoy spending time with my 2 kids, family and friends.

        Kristin Tannery

        Registered Dental Hygienist

        I am extremely passionate about oral health. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene from Northern Arizona University in 2004 and have been loving it ever since! I consider myself to be blessed to be in a profession I love and to work with such an amazing team! I am excited to help you achieve your dental dreams by providing education and high quality care.
        In my spare time I love camping, running, swimming and especially hiking. I survived hiking the Grand Canyon four times, once rim-to-rim. I also love spending time with my husband, four step kids and two dogs. I am a native of Arizona and have a dentist father who instilled a love for helping others.

            Registered Dental Assistant

            I have been a registered Dental Assistant since for over 24 years and have enjoyed every minute. My passion is to help each patient in a different way and give them individualized care. I assist Dr. Sara with all dental procedures and am passionate about keeping a clean, organized, and healthy environment for my team and patients.

            I am from San Diego, California and moved to Arizona in 2013. In my free time, I enjoy camping and exploring this new terrain with my husband and my two teens.

                Office Manager

                I have been working with Dr. Sara for over 5 years and have enjoyed the team and energy at PPFD. I have a passion for healthful living and thrive when I get to help our patients commit to improving their smiles and overall health. If you are ever in the office, I’m usually the one laughing-life is just too short!
                I have lived in Arizona the majority of my life. I attended the University of Arizona, and returned to Phoenix to pursue a career in the dental field. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, yoga and spending time with my friends and family

                    I have been a dental billing coordinator for over 6 years and am happy to say I found my new home here  at Pinnacle Peak Family Dentistry. I will take the time to make sure each person has a full understanding to all questions related to their dental insurance  before leaving our office.

                    I was born in California but have lived in Arizona most of my life. I love the near perfect weather year round. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and children, shopping for my grandson and cooking.

                        Having worked in dentistry collectively for just over 7 years, I’ve been working this dynamic team for about a year. My passion is to serve others and to make their experience the best it can be.

                        I was born and raised in Upstate New York and joined the US Navy the day after high school graduation.  In 2005 I moved to Show Low, Arizona.  Twelve years later, I moved to Phoenix, Arizona where I found my new dental home-Pinnacle Peak Family Dentistry. In my spare time I enjoy dancing, camping, kayaking and hanging out with my 2 adult children and 2 grandchildren.
