Meet Christine
Bio coming soon.



Meet Valery
I began my career in dentistry as a dental assistant. The time I spent in that role shaped my love for the field and inspired my strong ethical ideals. I first learned about dental hygienists in 2002, my dental assisting instructor at vocational school was an RDH. I was a Junior in High School! I eventually pursued a degree in dental hygiene and have been practicing clinically since June 2017.

I am currently the President of the Arizona Dental Hygienists' Association (AzDHA) and am involved at the national level with the American Dental Hygienists' Association (ADHA).

Using the latest technology, I partner with patients to reach their oral health goals. I am passionate about advocating for access to oral health care for all. I, like the CDC, support the integration of medical and dental care to address other chronic diseases associated with poor oral health.
