Michelle loves being a dental hygienist! Whether it is building patient trust or educating about proper flossing, she always enjoys what a typical day of cleaning teeth brings. After following in the footsteps of her mother, a practicing dental hygiene vet of 30+ years, Michelle attended Loma Linda University, graduating with a Bachelors Degree in 2011. A San Diego native herself, she came back to the sunny Southern California coast after graduation, met her husband, and is enjoying a new life of working part time as a hygienist and the rest of the time being a mother to their 1 year old son Jameson.
