Carol

Carol

Registered Dental Hygienist

I started as a dental assistant in 1975 after graduating from high school. While having my teeth cleaned, I was impressed by the time and care the hygienist took teaching me how to care for my teeth. I instantly knew what I wanted to do with my life. It was because of the time I spent with my Dental Hygienist and a conversation with a wise Uncle I decided to enter college and study dental hygiene. I graduated in 1982 and I have enjoyed every minute of my career.

"Besides taking my responsibility very seriously helping people have healthy mouths and teeth, I am able to help them achieve good overall health. Over the years I have had many patients touch my life so deeply that I want to give them something back in return. It has been both an exciting and enjoyable career for me."
