I have spent the past 6 years with a hospital that had an off-site dental clinic. We were a large office with 3 DDS, 5-6 HYG, 12 assistants, and 4 front desk staff. Prior to that, jobs were difficult to find in Illinois, therefore I was the Primary temp for two different offices.
My favorite hobbies involve a lot of active or outdoor activities like running, hiking, camping. I love crafts: like scrapbooking and painting (I just don't have much time to). Shopping, and just spending my weekends with my family and friends.
I am not married, nor do I have any kids. I am from Belvidere, Illinois and moved to Omaha in October 2018.
Quote: My dad always said, "you better love what you do in life, otherwise it's work."
My favorite part of working with SDH: It is so much more than "just cleaning teeth", there are opportunities to grow as a person and clinician. The team is also very driven both with clinical skills and building relationships with patients.
