Beyond her Dental Assistant education Jackie has received advanced training in in radiation safety, coronal polishing, topical fluoride, nitrous oxide, and infection control.

She has a genuine care for her patients and dentistry as a whole, in fact she can often be found giving time to causes such as OKMOM (Oklahoma Mission of Mercy) and other similar endeavors.
