Stacey, a dental hygienist since 2012, was inspired by her mother (also a hygienist) to continue on from her original career of dental assisting to dental hygiene. We are so glad she did! Her patients commonly compliment her on her gentle, yet thorough technique with dental cleanings and she is an excellent advocate for her patients’ oral health. Stacey absolutely loves her profession and the opportunity to care for her patients every day.
