As a hygienist, one of my favorite parts of the job is educating the patient. Whether it's by breaking down the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene or informing others of how systemic diseases can play a role in oral health and vice versa.
It builds the realization that the entire body is connected. It's not just a tooth or gum issue, but something that could be a catalyst for future health problems, if not taken care of. Education is key and I look forward to continuing educating the public on oral health.
While I have many hobbies and interests, I love spending time with my dog and being creative. I paint with acrylics and watercolors, while also drawing and creating art pieces digitally. I love to crochet, sew clothes, and do epoxy work on tumblers.
Fun Fact: My dog is named Vanille, after a character in the video game Final Fantasy.
