Dental Hygienist

Jennifer

I am Jennifer and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist. I have 14+ years  experience in the dental field. I have been a Dental Hygienist since 2012. My role as your dental hygienist is to provide you with comfortable care through assessment of findings, treatment planning, and if needed delivery of local anesthesia for prophylactic care/debridement. I will educate you on oral home care and hygiene instructions. I am certified and trained on using the diode laser. This procedure has a bactericidal effect and helps reduce inflammation in the periodontal pockets in addition to scaling. My expertise is to keep your gums happy and healthy for your lifetime! I live locally with my fantastic husband and two amazing children. We love going to the lake and spending time with family and friends. I look forward to meeting you!
