Tracy, Dental Hygienist
I have been in the dental field since 1987. Before completing my dental hygiene degree in 2000, I was a dental assistant for ten years. My dental experience includes general dentistry and periodontics.
I came to Dr. Butterfield’s office as a temporary dental hygienist to fill in for a couple of days. I was not really looking for employment. After working with Dr. Butterfield and her team, I knew that this office would be a great fit for me. I am drawn by her thoroughness and quality dentistry. I appreciate Dr. Butterfield’s eagerness to provide her patients with the information they need to make well-informed decisions about their oral health. Most of all I am impressed with the care and respect that Dr. Butterfield gives to each patient.
Education is one of the most important roles of a dental hygienist. It is very important to me that my patients never feel they have been lectured or nagged. Rather, patients should be well informed about the condition of their oral health, how it can affect their overall physical health, and how to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Dental visits should be a comfortable and positive experience. I work hard to achieve this with my gentle and caring approach.
