Dani Dickerson I am a new addition to the Dr. Ray Lunt dental practice family! I graduated from the Anthem College in 2007 where I completed courses for Dental Assisting. However I have found that my true calling is with a career in dental front office. I am family oriented and spend most of my outside work enjoying the company of my loved ones. I enjoy camping, hiking and day times drives through the gorge and other beautiful Oregon areas. I was born and raised in Oregon and love it here.
