Meet our Dentistry Staff
Our professional team is the heart of our practice. Dr. Norton has gone to extraordinary lengths to find genuinely warm, helpful, friendly professionals. All of our staff are dedicated to making sure your visit is as comfortable, safe and pleasant as it can be. We know going to the dentist isn’t everyone’s idea of a good time; but with our special team, you may find yourself just wanting to stop by to say hi.
Dr. Norton graduated from Northwestern University Dental School in 2000. Dr. Norton’s areas of practice include General Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry, Implant Dentistry, Root Canal Therapy and Oral Surgery. He practiced in Portland Oregon for 8 years before he and his wife decided it was time to dry off and get out of the rain and relocated their family to Gilbert in 2008. Dr. Norton and his wife Kelly have four daughters, and they “enjoy” spending most of their time making sure that their girls make it to and from a busy schedule of music lessons and school activities. Dr. Norton also enjoys cooking, spending time outdoors, fly-fishing, and hanging out with his golden retriever “Stiggy”.
Allison graduated from dental hygiene school in 2003 from Coastal Bend University in Texas. She is currently finishing her pre-requisites for dental school. Anissa graduated dental assisting school in 1995. She enjoys spending time with her family and cooking. Michelle has been a dental assistant for 9 years and likes to hike, take bike rides and go camping. Misty has been in the dental field since 2000. She loves to shop and hangout with her friends and family.
Elisha graduated from Rio Salado Dental Hygiene School in 2001. She has been practicing as a registered hygienist for 11 years, 9 of these years for Dr. Norton. Elisha is originally from Idaho, but moved to Arizona as a child. When she is not cleaning teeth, Elisha is usually chasing her 4 busy daughters around town. Her hobbies include running, swimming, traveling, and eating chocolate.
Nichol is the newest member of our team. While she has only been in dentistry since 2010, she is one of the most motivated and driven assistants we have ever met. Prior to her life in dentistry, Nichol graduated from high school an entire year early, and established herself as a tour de force hair stylist. She has a true passion for helping people look and feel their very best! Nichol is also furthering her education at CGCC and is considering applying to dental school in the future. Sounds like Dr. Norton needs to be careful that she doesn’t come back and take over both of their jobs!
