There are lots of reasons we’re considered one of the best dental practices in Mitchell, South Dakota. Not only do we have top-notch dentists, we also have an entire team of people who go above and beyond for our patients. One of those spectacular team members is our dental hygienist, Susan.
Susan’s interest in dentistry started early. Her mother made going to the dentist a priority, so Susan and her siblings went regularly. Her aunt happened to work for their dentist, so every trip became associated with seeing a family member and visiting a dentist who made appointments fun. While she initially considered nursing in college, her positive impression of dentistry caused her to reconsider and go into dental hygiene, instead. Susan’s favorite part of being a dental hygienist is getting to make a difference in the lives of her patients. “I enjoy educating my patients on home oral care and helping them have a healthy mouth and body!” she says.
When Susan isn’t providing patients with outstanding care, you might find her at home with her family. She loves spending time with her husband (who never fails to make her laugh) and their three children, supporting them in their many activities and endeavors. In fact, if Susan weren’t a dental hygienist, her dream job would be to stay at home and care for her family. In addition to spending time with family, she enjoys yard work, home improvement projects, cooking, and reading.
Even when they’re not in the dental chair, Susan is thinking of her patients. She offers the following advice to all: “Purchase an electric toothbrush and use it twice a day, remember to clean between your teeth with floss, limit sugary drinks, and visit your dentist regularly!”
