First and foremost, they are here to educate you on good oral habits. Our hygienists always perform your routine check-ups and six-month cleanings.

If you have Deirdra as your hygienist, you will immediately feel comforted by her gentle and warm-hearted personality. As a young child, Deirdra had a fear of the dentist. Perhaps that is why she does what she does. Deirdra loves making personal connections with her patients and reassuring them that a trip to the dentist can actually be enjoyable! It is important to Deirdra that she never has a patient who is afraid of the dentist like she once was. Deirdra earned her dental hygiene degree from the University of New Haven. She enjoys volunteering at the annual Ct Mission of Mercy and artistic hobbies such as scrap-booking, cooking, and knitting.
