Dawn loves her family and considers her coworkers a “family of teamwork” although they’re not necessarily blood-related. She has a strong ability to be versatile and make positive conversation with people from all social statuses and backgrounds.

To her, being a dental hygienist not only means being a dental health professional, but it also means being a teacher, friend and being easy to her colleagues and patients. Dawn loves people, and it exudes in all aspects of herself. She says the best part of being part of this practice is the nice people and the comfort-ability of her job.
