  • What is the best compliment you have received as a dental hygienist?

The best compliment that I have received is when a patient tells me I am very thorough and yet gentle! Also, it is very gratifying to know that they trust me with their care!

  • What do you enjoy doing when you are not practicing dentistry?

I like spending time with my husband and family. I enjoy dancing, shopping and outdoor activities.

  • What is the biggest challenge people face when seeking dental treatment?

I believe one of the challenges is affordable access to care. Also, many patients don’t seek dental
treatment because they are afraid of coming to the dentist due to unpleasant experiences in the past. However, it is of great importance to know that we are here to help in any way possible!
