I have worked in the dental field for over twenty years. I began my dental career as a dental assistant, and later trained to become a Registered Dental Hygienist. In addition to working as a hygienist in private dental practices, I have also enjoyed teaching hygiene students while working as a clinical instructor in Mount Ida College's Dental Hygiene program.
I also feel passionate about providing dental services to patients in need. I have traveled to the Dominican Republic to provide dental cleanings for under-served families, and I have also obtained my Massachusetts Public Health Dental Hygiene certificate. I look forward to continuing to find ways to provide critical dental services for those who need them.
I approach my work with gentleness, warmth, and kindness, and love getting to know my patients. It is a joy to listen to my patients' life stories and to form long-term relationships with them and their families. As their hygienist, I offer friendly support to my patients to help them understand, improve, and maintain their oral health.
