Vonda works in the front office and has been in the dental field since 1998, and has been a valuable part of West 56th Dental since 2003. During her many years in the front office she has become an expert in helping patients understand and maximize their insurance benefits. Patients with ever-changing insurance coverage are fortunate to have Vonda as their advocate. She reviews treatment plans and financing options for all our patients. She really enjoys helping others work towards a better smile and getting to know the many people she works with on a daily basis.

She is married to a wonderful husband, has three great children, and a beautiful granddaughter. She loves spending time with family and playing with her granddaughter. Vonda enjoys shopping and crocheting dresses in her free time.


Analey has been part of the West 56th Dental team since 2003. She took a dental assisting class in high school just to see how it was and ended up loving dentistry. She feels very lucky to have found Dr. Bowman to further her training. Analey decided to broaden her dental education, so she attended and graduated from the Dental Hygiene program at Salt Lake Community College in the spring of 2012. She is very excited about her new profession and looks forward to many years of serving patients in an effort to help them with their overall health. She prides herself in providing excellent patient care with a caring and sensitive attitude. She loves being able to help others feel better and more confident when it comes to their smiles.

She enjoys doing anything outdoors, especially camping and fishing. She loves to travel and see new places and recently returned from serving an LDS mission in Uruguay. She is fluent in Spanish and enjoys speaking it with all those who know it as well. She hopes to one day be able to go back to South America to visit more places and possibly do some volunteer dentistry.
