Hello, my name is Sinead. I’m the dental assistant for Dr. James G. Hood. I’ve been assisting for four years and graduated from Apollo College in 2006.  I am the staff member who takes care of our patients while they are in the dental chair, with or without sedation. I enjoy my position at Dental Care Associates of Spokane Valley because of the people I work with and the patients I care for.

I am originally from Spokane. My family moved to Ritzville when I was in 4th grade. I grew up and graduated high school in Ritzville.  After school I decided to travel for a bit. I traveled to Ireland, moved to San Francisco for about a year, and finally settled back in Spokane. I am a single mom of the cutest little girl in the world, Kiera. She is in 3rd grade and is one of the smartest little kids I have ever known. I spend a lot of my free time with her. I have chosen to raise my daughter in Spokane to be close to my family and I love the area.

My mom is originally from Ireland. She was born and raised there, hence my Irish name. My dad was in Ireland for a year visiting family and met my mom and well, here I am. I have four brothers, Mark, Liam, Daniel, and Peter. I am the second oldest in my family. My oldest brother lives in England with his wife and two children. We used to be able to visit them every two years, but it has been a lot harder to plan a trip over there.  I am hoping to take my daughter to Ireland next summer to visit. She has never been and it is an experience I want her to never forget.

So that’s a bit about me. I look forward to meeting you and making your dental visit a comfortable and pleasant experience.
