I’ve been in the dental field for almost 20 years. I always had dental hygiene as a final goal, but started out assisting in Salt Lake City, where I am from, and really fell in love with dentistry.
I attended Dental Hygiene school in the Seattle area. I was fortunate to learn how to administer local anesthetic as well as place white and silver fillings, along with all the other duties of a dental hygienist. I met my husband while there and he promptly moved me to Arizona after we were married and I graduated in 2001. I practiced in Arizona for several years, and then his job as a pilot brought us to Dallas in 2005. We added two beautiful daughters to our family, Brooklyn in 2006 and Michelle in 2009. In 2013 we had another job change that took us just outside of Washington DC for 18 months, but we fortunate to be transferred back to Texas.
