Nicole, Registered Dental Hygienist

I started my career in dentistry as a Dental Assistant in Modesto in 1997. I quickly discovered that I love dentistry but that assisting wasn’t a perfect fit for me. I then worked as a Dental Health Educator for a nonprofit and took pre-requisites at Modesto Junior college, until I was accepted into the dental hygiene program at Chabot College in Hayward. I earned my RDH in 2003 and have since worked primarily in private practice. I love to mentor new dental team members and have an affinity for the particular, special needs, and challenging patients of a practice. I recently graduated from the Foothill College BSDH program and am looking forward to expanding my experiences and options that this degree provides. I currently work in a private practice in the Santa Cruz mountains where I live with my family. On my time away from dentistry, I enjoy hiking, bookclub, and kayaking.
