I have worked as a dental hygienist for the past 16 years and I'm very passionate about my job and all of my clients. At the dental office, we're like a family; we truly enjoy each other's company and the clinic's atmosphere makes it a great place to work.
From camping to hiking to snowshoeing with my son, you can always expect to find me outdoors during my time away from the office.
