Jenny - Registered Dental Hygienist
Jenny is our dental hygienist. She graduated Harper College with an Associates in Dental Hygiene. What she loves most about hygiene is getting to know each of her patients while personalizing the care she provides to each individual including oral health education. The best feeling she gets is when a patient leaves her chair feeling cleaner and happier because of the care she provided. On her free days she loves to lounge around with her husband and their Mini Schnauzer named Bebe. She has plenty of stories to share about her love of hygiene, family, Bebe, and oral self-care.
