Creating beautiful smiles is a team effort. Sure, we’ve got state-of-the-art technology and continue our education in order to stay on top of new advances in dentistry, but without the Sehnert Precision Dentistry team, none of that would matter. One particular team member we’re grateful to have on board is our hygienist Holly.
As someone who was insecure about her own teeth, Holly’s fascination with teeth started early. Most of the people in her family had dental issues, so her dream was to become a dentist so that she could fix their teeth in the future. When it was time for her to go to college, she decided to get a B.S. in hygiene so she could then pay for dental school. “I was blessed to have gone to the school that I went to because not only did I fall in love with hygiene, but they had an expanded functions program (a program that teaches hygienist how to do things like place fillings and cement crowns) that gave me an insight into what being a dentist would be like,” Holly said. “Not only did the program give me a deep appreciation for the complexity and difficulty that a dentist may experience, but it also made me realize I did not enjoy the restorative side of dentistry as much as the preventative side.” Her favorite part of being a hygienist at Sehnert Precision Dentistry is getting to educate her patients. She also loves living vicariously through them: “It’s fun to get a taste of so many different ideas and life experiences,” she said.
When she’s not providing patients with outstanding dental care, you can find Holly at home doing some of her favorite things: practicing yoga, reading a good book, or having a Netflix binge. She enjoys a good laugh and is often entertained by her husband and when watching “Saturday Night Live”. Holly’s interest in keeping people healthy isn’t limited to dentistry; if she weren’t a hygienist, Holly would be either a nutritionist or a yoga instructor.
Luckily for us, Holly is happy to stick with the Sehnert team. Because she is always thinking of her patients, she offers the following advice: “Floss the teeth you want to keep!”
