To celebrate Dental Hygiene Month, we will be highlighting stories from our talented dental hygienists.  Each week, we will post three stories, one from each of our fantastic hygienists.

Today, we begin with Beth.

"The moment I knew I was in the right profession was the first time I completed a deep cleaning. My patient explained to me how her gums felt so much better, it didn't hurt to brush her teeth, she no longer had bad breath, and her gums weren't bleeding anymore.  She didn't realize the level of discomfort she previously had until after the cleaning and realizing how much healthier her gums were.  That made me ...
