Go Crusaders!!
Judy is a loyal Crusaders fan, and doesn’t miss a game. Not many people know that Judy was previously a radiographer before starting her career as a hygienist. Even less people know about her secret addiction to Suduko and Codebreaker!

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes!
Rhon is of the firm belief that a woman can never have too many pairs of shoes. Although she wouldn’t tell us exactly - she did confirm the tally is well over 50 pairs. Rhon has been with Avonhead Dental for over 30 years.
