Welcome! My name is Tanya. I am a dental hygienist here and I love to help people improve their oral health. I take pride in educating patients on how to avoid cavities and gum diseases. I try to make each hygiene visit as comfortable as possible for all of my patients and I enjoy working with young children. I’ve been told by patients that I am gentle and thorough. With my background in Nutrition, I am particularly interested in how our diets affect the oral health and vice versa. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, son and daughter. My favorite hobbies are cooking, traveling, hiking, and reading.
