Registered Dental Hygienist
Ever since I was a child, going to the dentist has always been positive experience, which inspired me to become a dental hygienist. I hope that my role in the dental field, I can recreate that feeling for each of my patients, while educating them the importance of oral care. During my free time, I enjoy activities such as baking, paper crafts, & planning events and activities with friends; if I was not a dental hygienist, I think I would have become an event planner or any occupation that allows me to unlock my creativity. I consider myself to be very down-to-earth, preferring to spend time with my husband and my two cats at home, however, I am open to- and love to try new activities and adventures. I hope that my career as a dental hygienist is a long and fruitful one, opening more opportunities as they come.
