I chose a career in dental hygiene because of my commitment to developing long lasting relationships and the desire to empower patients to reach for their best dental health. My personal goal is to create an environment where patients feel relaxed and rejuvenated. A smile and laughter are large parts of promoting healing and happiness. When I see my patients it’s always like greeting a family member.
I was introduced to a career in dental hygiene through a dedicated teacher at the Calhoun Area Career Center in Battle Creek. I was drawn to this profession because I value being able to create meaningful relationships with patients that continue to build with each visit. My goal is for my patients to be relaxed and fully informed about their oral health.
Outside of the office, I love spending time with family, including my four nephews and two nieces. Also, my family has adopted and fostered retired racing greyhounds for years, and that remains a large part of my life.
My favorite part of dentistry is interacting with the patients. I like to develop a rapport to make everyone feel comfortable. I have been in the dental field for approximately 17 years. I have a wide variety of experience in the dental field from assisting to managing a practice.
My calling in life is meeting people where they are and making a connection. I view each individual like a family member and strive to provide my patients with the best possible dental experience. I’ve been a clinical dental assistant for 25 years. One aspect of dentistry that I enjoy is reviewing the procedure that we’re going to do and making sure that an amazing result is soon to come.
