Brenda Arndt

Brenda Arndt is a graduate of Shepherd College in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. Brenda’s desire to learn more about dentistry has led her to complete several of Linda Mile’s lectures as well as attend personal consulting seminars both in and out of the office. She has also completed Dental Boot Kamp I and II with Walter Hayley and Steve Anderson and several courses with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Brenda attributes the success of Smile Designs of the Shenandoah Valley to its service. “We treat people as if they are coming into our own homes,” she says.
