Our Forest Hills Staff
Sharon – Office Manager
Employed with Dr. Sims for 18 years.
Born and raised in Queens, N.Y. I came to Dr. Sims with a dental background, a healthy smile with no cavities!
Always practicing good dental hygiene came natural to me since my father was a dentist. Growing up I could have my cake and eat it too as long as I brushed and flossed my teeth afterwards.
When I am not in the office helping our patients to achieve a more beautiful smile I enjoy writing screenplays and reality shows, networking, modeling, singing, designing jewelry and walking my beautiful Collie, “Lassie”.
