To celebrate National Dental Hygienist Week, I want to share with you why I love what I do. I have been a dental hygienist for about 13 years now and truly enjoy it every day. My profession has many rewards that drive me to genuinely love this career. Learning about my patients lifestyles and health so that I can direct them to what will work for them is so rewarding to me. Seeing a patient come back after my home-care advice and seeing improved oral health is so satisfying. I truly love hearing about my patients families and what is going on in their lives. I love the relationships I have gained with my patients over the years, I cherish each and every one!

Happy National Dental Hygienist Week!
