During the past few months we have had some positive changes with our hygiene team and we wanted to take a moment to update you on these. We also wanted to brag a little about each of our great hygienists! It is always our goal to appoint you with the hygienist of your choice, but if there are scheduling conflicts, we want you to feel comfortable knowing another hygienist and what is special about them. They all deliver gentle but thorough care which is so important in helping you maintain your teeth and gums for a lifetime of use.
OUR HYGIENE TEAM
We are proud to introduce you to our newest addition of our dental hygiene team:
Catherine comes to us with 10 years of experience. She is qualified to deliver laser assisted dental cleanings as well as conventional hygiene cleanings. It is her desire to use her dental skills to prevent costly dental disease. Someday Catherine would like to serve in less developed countries in some capacity during her career. She is a native of Washington State and has lived in many states. When she isn’t working she loves spending time with her family and enjoys hiking, cooking, and going to concerts.
Vanessa has been with us for 4 years. We were lucky enough to hire her when she first moved to Colorado Springs. Those of you who have become one of her patients know her skills as a hygienist to be gentle yet very effective. Her goal is for her patients to achieve a healthier mouth and body. She loves the relationships she has with her patients and their families. Vanessa has 2 children and in her spare time enjoys teaching Zumba Fitness classes.
Many of you are loyal patients of Alesia. She has been with us for 11 years and we are blessed to have the stability of her long term dedication to this practice and to our patients. Her mission with patient care is to listen to the needs and concerns of her patients regarding their oral health. Collaboration and education are key steps in the successful healing of the teeth and gums. She understands that a healthy mouth is vital to helping the whole body shift towards harmony. Alesia is spending a little less time working this year so that she can enjoy more time with her children.
Patti Bloss has been with us for 8 years. Patti’s story is unique and we certainly all benefit from it. She practiced dental hygiene for several years and then earned her dental degree (DDS) from the University of Michigan. She then moved to Colorado Springs and ran a very successful dental practice from 1982-2001. Patti decided, after selling her practice, to work as a hygienist.
We have been fortunate to have her in our practice. Patti is a wife and the mother of two adult children. She values her family time and enjoys traveling, scrapbooking, and gardening. Patti has taken special interest in the use of lasers in dental hygiene. This is cutting edge dentistry and we are pleased to introduce this into our practice in the near future. Ask us about the benefits of laser assisted dental hygiene.
We are proud to have this team of professionals in our practice. Our intention is to deliver excellent dental care to our patients in the most comfortable and efficient manner. We truly appreciate your business, trust and support.
