My background in dentistry started 20 years ago as a registered dental assistant. After realizing a strong passion for dentistry and helping others. I decided to further my education in dental hygiene. I received and Associates degree in Science at West Los Angeles College in Culver City California. I continued my education to receive my RDHAP license also from WLAC, this license will allow me to bring quality preventive care into the comfort of your home. My favorite part of being a dental hygienist is being able to provide patients with gentle hands on care, while providing valuable information necessary in preventing dental disease
