Tell the story of how you chose to work in the dental industry.
When I was young, I would love to go to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned. My hygienist was always so friendly. As I got older, we would talk about what I wanted to do. She always loved talking about her career, and it sparked an interest. Here it is many years later, and I still love what I do!
What do you like best about your chosen profession?
I love connecting with my patients and getting to know them and their families. I have been through more weddings, pregnancies, adoptions, graduation, career changes…retirements. I love being able to hear about my patients’ lives as they and their families grow and change!
Care to share a memorable story about life working at Herzog Dental?
I came to Herzog Dental as a patient, so I could have my own dentist. When the office manager noticed my clinical knowledge while we chatted at checkout, she asked if I was a hygienist. Turned out, she was looking for a new hygienist, and she offered me a job, to which I am very thankful. I love coming to work here!
