RDH, Dental Hygienist
Dental phobic? No worries, as Patty comes from a long line of dental phobes in her family and understands how vital treating you with compassion and empathy are in your comfort in the dental chair. Patty has been a Registered Dental Hygienist since 2004 graduated with a degree in Science and Dental Hygiene studies in her home state of New Jersey and completed her state boards at NYU. She entered the dental world as a dental assistant in an Endodontic practice and continued to work and gain knowledge in various areas of dentistry such as Periodontics, Oral Surgery, and Pediatric dentistry. So it is easy to understand that one of her passions is helping patients achieve oral health and confidence through understanding the oral and overall body connection. Patty was born in Peru and grew up in New Jersey but has called Athens, GA home since 2007 alongside her mom.
Her other main interest is doing volunteer work with the deaf community as well as going to the movies, enjoying music and dancing and also taking her 4 legged “kid” Jack to the park.
