Cherell Simmons

Greetings! My name is Cherell and I am the Office Manager at CNS Dental. I am a DC native and have worked in the dentistry field for 12 years. Growing up, I aspired to be an educator but that soon changed after I was introduced to dentistry. While in college, I had a summer job experience as an entry level dental assistant and in a short time, I realized that I wanted to somehow incorporate dentistry and education into my career path. Being a natural leader, I found a way to use my studies in English Literature and efficient on the job training experiences to develop an elevated patient care system that evoked dental health awareness. Whether it’s educating the patient on their insurance benefits or bridging the gap for improved Dentist to Patient relationship, you can trust that are in good hands.

In my spare time I enjoy time with my spouse, traveling, youth outreach and mentoring.
