I am so thankful for this opportunity to be working with such amazing doctors and team that I truly do enjoy coming to work every day.

Jaimy Clinkenbeard

Hi, My name is Jaimy and I have been a dental hygienist here at West Valley Periodontics for almost 10 years. I was born and raised here in the Phoenix area. I became a certified dental assistant in 2002 and worked in another periodontic specialty office. I decided to go back to school and continue my education. I graduated from Phoenix College with my degree in Dental Hygiene in 2009 and I am anesthesia certified. I have been working with Dr. Bohra ever since. I absolutely love my job. I love the staff that I am fortunate enough to be a part of and I love being able to help my patients with their dental health. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my husband and three wonderful children.


Karen

“If you find a job you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.” That statement is so true for me. I have been in the dental field for 23 years and the last 13 years as a Dental Hygienist. I received my associate degree from Phoenix College, I am currently finishing my bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene at NAU, Go Lumberjacks! I am very lucky to wake up every day and work doing what I love, getting to know our patients in a deeper level than just “cleaning” their teeth, is a statement of how wonderful Dr. Bohra, our staff and specially our patients are. I am looking forward to meeting you.


Yvanna

Hi, my name is Yvanna and I am a Dental Hygienist here at West Valley Periodontics. I am originally from southern California but have called Arizona home since 2006. I have a Bachelors of Science in Biology with an Emphasis in Pre-Medicine from Grand Canyon University, GO LOPES. After completing my bachelors I decided to further my education and achieved a degree in Dental Hygiene, where I was awarded top clinician of my graduating class. I hold boundless value in connecting with patients and empowering them to reach their optimal oral hygiene potential. This career path has rewarded me beyond measure and given me the opportunity to pursue my greatest passion of giving back to the community through local/global service projects. When I am not working, I enjoy volunteering at dental as well as non-dental organizations, spending quality time with my loving husband, and traveling.


Kay

My name is Kay, I am a registered dental hygienist at West Valley Periodontics. A South Dakota native. I moved to Arizona in 2005. I am a proud mother and wife. When not practicing dental hygiene I enjoy spending time with my family, long distance running, hiking, cooking, and volunteering at my daughter’s school. My passion for the dental field began in 2008 when I first started working as a pediatric dental assistant. As my passion for the dental field blossomed it prompted me to become a dental hygienist. I graduated with Honors from Fortis College Phoenix, obtaining my degree in Applied Science of Dental Hygiene. I am member of the American Dental Hygiene Association. I am also an active volunteer in the community, providing my skillset to the Give Kids A Smile Foundation, Central Arizona Dental Society Foundation, and I provide dental health education in two local school districts. I understand the fear that comes with entering into a dental office and strive to provide patients a comfortable hygiene experience. I look forward to meeting you and to providing you with the gold standard of care for your dental hygiene needs.

One of my passions is helping others and making patients feel comfortable and well taken care of in the field of dentistry.
