ORTHODONTIC ASSISTANT/DENTAL HYGIENIST
I have been an orthodontic Assistant with Insoft & Hurst Orthodontics since 1994. They supported my decision to further my dental career by attending and then graduating from dental hygiene school in 2000. I enjoyed working with Drs. Insoft and Hurst so much that I decided to do hygiene part-time in conjunction with orthodontics! I comfort and support our patients throughout the course of their treatment with braces or Invisalign® until they’ve achieved a new and beautiful smile. I love watching their personalities transform as they gain the confidence to smile proudly.My husband Paul and son Jaxson and I love spending time as a family doing CrossFit and fishing.
