As a Registered Dental Hygienist of 13 years, I work hard to educate patients on oral hygiene and home care prevention while also performing gentle dental cleanings. I truly delight in meeting new patients and being given the opportunity to become life long friends. The most rewarding part of my day is seeing patients smile. In my time off I look forward to spending every moment with my family and friends. We enjoy sports, camping, hiking, and traveling.
I am a dental assistant here at Premier Dental Health. I enjoy talking to our patients and making them feel comfortable about coming to the dentist while providing the best care to them. I love the friendships that are built with our patients and my goal is helping them achieve a beautiful smile while building confidence in themselves. Spending time with my family is my passion! I love my church, traveling, Braves baseball, and the outdoors.
