Question

Why do you love Dental Hygiene?

Answer

Dental Hygiene is a profession that is associated with science and health. It has provided a variety of professional and personal experiences for me. 

Question

When you were practicing regularly, what was your proudest moment?

Answer

Working with patients to modify/improve their overall health was challenging but so rewarding when patients would return in a healthier state than the previous visit. It was especially exciting when the patient recognized the improvements, too.

Question

How does being an RDH help you in your job at Hu-Friedy?

Answer

Working with students, there are many opportunities to teach them techniques on instrumentation and share personal experience as a dental hygienist.

Question

What do you do to support RDHs in the field?

Answer

I am an active member of my professional association. I attend professional meetings and social activities as I can. There are many opportunities for me to share new information with my colleagues.

Question

Why do you believe in Hu-Friedy products/the Hu-Friedy brand?

Answer

Hu-Friedy Instruments were provided to me as a student. I consistently requested Hu-Friedy instruments when I was in practice. If the practice did not have Hu-Friedy when I started, they eventually changed to Hu-Friedy. Hu-Friedy provides outstanding quality and consistency in manufacturing and has a commitment to their customer that is unmatched by other companies. It is with great pride that I’m able to say that I am employed by Hu-Friedy.
