Daisy – RDH, Registered Dental Hygienist
As a dental hygienist, my focus is on providing high-quality patient care and educating them on how to maintain good oral health. I am committed to making hygiene appointments a comfortable and positive experience. I am here to learn your dental history, listen to your concerns, and plan for a healthy future.
During hygiene visits, I encourage patients to ask as many questions as possible. This allows me to personalize treatment and enable patients to be involved in their treatment. I also stay current on new technologies, hygiene products, and attend continuing education classes regularly. I graduated from the College of DuPage with an AAS Degree in Dental Hygiene. During my free time, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family and friends. My fiancée and I share two dogs, Rocky who is a super energetic Boston Terrier, and Mimi, our adorable French Bulldog.
