Tina , RDH
Hi, my name is Tina. I have been a dental hygienist for 21 years. Before I was interested in dental hygiene, I had been a dental assistant for three years. I graduated from Southern Illinois University Dental Hygiene Program in 1993.
I love interacting with patients, helping them feel comfortable, and guiding them to make informed decisions about the health of their mouth and teeth. After graduation, I worked for a year here in the U.S., then chose to take a job opportunity overseas in Zürich, Switzerland for two years. The learning experience I took from there was not only valuable, but also rewarding.
For the past seven years, I have been serving on the Advisory Board for the dental assisting program at Elgin Community College. It is an honor to provide great quality care to all my patients and get to know them and their families. In my free time, I love to be with my family and friends. I love traveling and scuba diving. I also have a soft spot in my heart for animals.
