The Oasis Dental Care Team
Joey Mackenzie - Dental Hygienist
Hello Flagstaff! I’m Joey Mackenzie, the Part-Time Registered Dental Hygienist at Oasis Dental Care. I graduated from the NAU Dental Hygiene program here in Flagstaff and I absolutely love my job. I decided to pursue a career in dentistry because I wanted to help our community achieve an overall state of oral and general health. I take a holistic approach to dentistry and treat the mouth as a part of the entire body.
Furthermore, I’m a tremendous advocate of oral health education. My philosophy is that if the patient doesn’t understand his or her condition then how are they to prevent it from occurring? So I make sure to take enough time with my patients so they thoroughly understand and are capable of taking charge of their condition.
I’m originally from Far East Mesa, a suburb of Phoenix. I came to Flagstaff to attend college following my service in the Navy. I met my wife Menith during my time in school and I am happy to have the opportunity to work with her. We both enjoy mountain biking and hiking throughout beautiful Flagstaff. I also enjoy reading, boxing, traveling, and yoga. I’m always working toward improving myself and learning from those around me. I look forward to meeting and getting to know you.
Menith Mackenzie - Dental Hygienist
My name is Menith Mackenzie and I am the Full-Time Registered Dental Hygienist here at Oasis Dental Care. I began my dental career working as a Dental Assistant while I completed my degree. I have a tremendous passion towards the dental hygiene field. My favorite role as a Dental Hygienist is being an educator for my patients. Giving them the opportunity to have a complete understanding of their oral health. I look forward to coming into the office every day and having the opportunity to continue to grow and learn.
I was born and raised in Flagstaff and completed my degree in the Spring of 2015. I met my husband while at NAU, a Dental Hygienist as well, and we both decided to stay in town. I love being in Flagstaff with everything that it has to offer. On my time off I enjoy being outside, either hiking or biking. You may also see me at a local coffee shop winding down from the day, so stop by and say Hi!
