At Freedom Dental Care, we are honored to have you as a part of our family and we thought it would be nice for you to know a bit more about us. In our "Get to Know" blog series we sat down with one of our Dental Hygienists, Michele and asked her a few questions.
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 was raised in Frederick County, Maryland and after college lived in Texas and rural southern Virginia . After a while I missed my Maryland roots and moved back to Frederick County. During my childhood I spent a lot of time as a patient in the dental/orthodontic chair, and became interested in pursuing a career in the dental field. With my transition back to Maryland I am happy I found a wonderful office and position at Freedom Dental Care to settle into.
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.
Multiple patients have hugged me after their visits. Which left me feeling appreciated and knowing I was able to give them a good dental experience.
What is your favorite part of your job?
Patient interaction! Also I’m a neat freak, which is part of Dental Hygiene.
What is a little known talent you have unrelated to your profession?
I can bowl pretty well!
