As my patient, you can expect to leave smiling as you recall the banter during your dental cleaning. You will leave a little more educated on how to improve your oral hygiene and possibly have inside info on local art galleries.


I have been a practicing dental hygienist since 2019. Other than listening to podcasts or audiobooks, I enjoy spending time with my partner and our four pets: Dexter, Melanie, Chloe, and Mulligan.
