Hello everyone. My name is Michele. I have been a hygienist since 2009. I came by Kidstown Dental in 2012 when it opened and met Dr. Amy briefly and toured around the office. I learned a lot about the philosophy of the office and really wanted to join the team! Dr. Amy already had Holly and Kerry helping, and as she was just open, that wasn’t to be. I sent my resume 3 times, and the 3rd time they were ready for another hygienist. I worked in another pediatric dental office for 5 years before coming to Kidstown Dental. When I started I was amazed by how many new things I was learning on a daily basis! We were doing hands on activities that were developed to teach children about food choices, oral care, and so much more. We were helping parents to really understand things that contribute to kids getting cavities, and not all of these things are obvious. It is very rewarding to work in an office that makes plenty of time for each child (no rush them in rush them out here!) It is also rewarding to work in an office that is so prevention focused, materials conscience, as well as being experts with special needs and frightened children! I also really enjoy the team and the genuine friendships between “co-workers”.
In my (current) spare time, I am planning my wedding! Later I hope my spare time will be spent enjoying time with my husband and our future family! I also enjoy working out, and am grateful to have a fantastic personal trainer right next door!! Got to be in tip top shape for the big day.
