Cynthia Gonzalez  - Receptionist

​My name is Cynthia Gonzalez.  I am 27 years old and enjoy outdoor activities such as nature walks, golfing, volleyball, and the beach.  I recently started working for Dr. Josef and Dr. Jonelle at their Frankfort office.  I have learned so much already and I'm excited to learn more.  Since working for this dental office I have become interested in entering a dental hygiene program.  I find it very interesting and would like to be a dental hygienist one day
