Registered Dental Hygienist
As a dental hygienist, my goal is to provide state-of-the-art dental hygiene care for all my patients. To help accomplish this goal, I continue to educate myself on the latest techniques and treatments available. I also try to make my patients’ dental visits as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
I have now been in dentistry for over sixteen years, fourteen of them working for Dr. Cohen. During all that time he has always made the office feel like a family environment. He always encourages growth and passion in the dental field. It is wonderful to know that Dr. Cohen and I share a passion for excellence in caring for our dental patients.
I love working with Dr. Cohen because he is a great dentist and he truly cares about his patients' well being. He is my boss, my mentor, and my friend.
Personally, I am happily married with a beautiful daughter who we adore very much. My husband and I are also blessed to be expecting a second child later this year. Yes, truly blessed!
