Question

Why do you love Dental Hygiene?

Answer

It is a rewarding profession that has wonderful flexibility!

Question

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

Answer

Without hesitation, the loyalty of my patients. Nothing more rewarding than a patient that will patiently wait until they can get an appointment with their favorite Hygienist.

Question

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

Answer

Understanding the dental verbiage, preventative procedures and daily hygiene demands immediately relates and creates a bond with our customers. If I had a dollar for every time a hygienist thanked Hu-Friedy for hiring a hygienist to help consult them on their purchases, I would be on a beach in Hawaii.

Question

What do you do to support RDHs in the field?

Answer

I consider myself more as consultant and liaison for the dental hygienist. So many hygienists leave Hygiene School only knowing what instruments were in their student kits. Educating hygienists on more advanced instrumentation is very rewarding as this refreshes their perspective during their clinical procedures.

Question

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

Answer

Hu-Friedy is how I gained my initial clinical experience in college and now I’ve been proudly working for this wonderful company for over 16 years. There is no doubt in my mind that Hu-Friedy manufactures the best quality metal to create the longest lasting instruments. I can identify Hu-Friedy instruments from across a room as they are the instruments that maintain the most shine and luster over time. We truly are the best because we last.
