Registered Dental Hygienist
I like interacting with our patients and learning about their lives. Our talks help me understand their concerns and where they can make positive changes in their home care. I assess a patient’s oral health, take X-rays, and perform nonsurgical periodontal therapy. I also assist Dr. Washington with patient care. A lot of my time is focused on patient education.
I’m from Smithfield and love spending time with my husband and baby boy. My favorite pastimes include running, hiking, and going to the beach.
New Patient and Appointment Coordinator
I love our patients. Everyone has their own stories to share and I enjoy hearing about their lives, families, and interests. As our new patient concierge, I welcome those who are seeing us for the first time. I help them with their paperwork and records, explain what their visit will entail, and answer questions. I also answer our phones and schedule appointments.
I like knowing I’m helping someone get their periodontal disease under control. This improves their oral health, overall health, and smile. When a person knows their mouth and smile are in great shape, it boosts their self-confidence. I coordinate the activities of the dental hygienists and assistants, to ensure our office runs smoothly.
In my spare time I love being with my young daughter, as well as family and friends. I also love working out and spending time with all my fur babies.
From new patient appointments through the end of treatment, I love when patients smile because we’ve exceeded their expectations. Many people don’t know what to expect from periodontal care. I review Dr. Washington’s treatment plan with patients, explain what will be done and why, and answer their questions. I also assist with financial and insurance arrangements.
Outside the office, I love spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy traveling and cooking projects.
I enjoy knowing I am able to assist our patients, even in a non-traditional sense. I work closely with each person to help them understand their insurance benefits and sort out the paperwork. I also resolve any issues, so patients don’t need to stress. In addition, I help patients understand the available financial options, so they can get the care they need, when they need it.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I enjoy talking with my patients and learning about their activities and interests. That helps me better understand how to help them improve their home dental hygiene routines. It’s a pleasure to see the improvement in each person’s oral health and smile after cleanings and surgical procedures. I educate patients about their unique dental concerns and support them in making healthy changes.
I’m married, with one teenager who’s now driving (eeek!). We are very family-oriented and spend most of our free time together. We enjoy four-wheeling and watching our son’s sporting events.
