Tell us a little about yourself (where you are from, how you got into the field you are in, and time at Freedom Dental Care)
I am originally from Brazil. I've been in this Country for almost 20 years. I am married and I have a five year old son. "My son is my biggest joy". I was a dental assistant for a couple of years. Being in the dental field has always been my passion so I decided to go go a little further and become a dental hygienist. I am thankful I chose the profession because I love what I do. I started to work at Freedom Dental Care in 2017 and I am happy to be part of the family.
What are your favorite things to do in your spare time?

Share an experience with a patient that has made a lasting impression on you.
Once my son was sick and I had to cancel with my work on the last minute and this patient came in for his appointment and he asked if I was working that day because he didn't see me around yet while he was sitting out the reception area. The receptionist told him that my son was sick and he was going to be seen by a different hygienist. The patient got up and said I am leaving call me when my hygienist is back.
What is your favorite part of your job?
Knowing that my patients listen and get motivated to help me help them keep their beautiful smile.
