Trish Key – Front Desk

A military brat, I moved to Virginia from California when I was 3 years old.  I am the youngest of six and was raised in the Kempsville area. My husband, Jimmy, and I are childhood sweethearts and have been together since 1985. We have two beautiful daughters and 2 wonderful granddaughters. I enjoy spending time with my family and find great joy and pleasure in spoiling my grand kids! When I am not at work, chances are I am camping or fishing with my husband and other family members.

I began working for Dr. Finnerty in 1987. I love my career and enjoy coming to work every day. Many of our patients started coming to us when they were children, and now they have children of their own they bring here!  We have a history and friendship with our patients that you won’t find in a lot of offices.  When you can recognize a patients voice on the phone with just a “hello” you know they are more then just a patient. I think that’s what I love about working here the most, I have hundreds of “friends”!

Cindy Rector – Dental Assistant

I was born in Pax Ruiver, Maryland, but have called Virginia Beach my home since 1973. My husband Jimmy and I have been married since 1983. I have a wonderful son and daughter who have both blessed me with beautiful grandchildren, (aren’t they all!). I have 2 granddaughters and 1 grandson. They are the light of my life.

I have worked for Dr. Finnerty since 1989. I enjoy all the wonderful patients we have had the pleasure of meeting and have cared for over the years. It is easy to come to work every day when your patients and coworkers are like your extended family.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love to shop and of course, spoil my grandchildren. I also like to watch movies and football. GO COWBOYS!

I am very active in my church and enjoy spending time with both my family and friends.
I have been a dental hygienist for over 30 years and am proud to say I have been a part of Dr. Finnerty’s practice for over 24 years now!

I love living in Va. Beach where I enjoy swimming and walking year round. I also have 2 talented sons who fill our house with wonderful music.
