Get To Know Our Dental Hygienists – Part 5

We are wrapping up National Dental Hygiene Month with our final “Get To Know Our Dental Hygienists”.  Today we introduce you to Heather Greene who has been at our Sister Bay practice since 2012.

Heather Greene Dental Hygienist from Sister Bay Dentist Office Dentistry By Design

What is your favorite part about being a dental hygienist?
Meeting the patients and learning about them and their families.  Many of my patients are like my extended family.  I also enjoy helping our patients achieve and maintain optimal oral health!

What’s your best dental hygiene tip other than brushing/flossing daily?
Visit your hygienist at the appropriate interval for YOU!  Some patients need to be seen every 3 or 4 months rather than 6 months.  Also, I highly recommend a Sonicare electric toothbrush.  Your mouth will feel like you just left the dental office!

What is something about you that very few people know?
I am petrified of frogs!

If you weren’t a dental hygienist what would you be?
I would be a Physical Therapist.
