Dedicated and energetic Registered Dental Hygienist with 9 years experience providing skilled dental treatment in a team environment. Focused on patient education, proper oral hygiene, treatment and preventative care management.
I have been practicing dental hygiene since graduating Stark State College of Technology in June 2003. I have consistently completed several continuing education classes throughout my career. I have practiced in private and corporate dentistry. My ability to relate to people affords me the opportunity to positively affect their oral health.
