    From my personal history: 

    I have been a practicing dental hygienist for over two decades. I attended the University of Rhode Island from 1994-1998.   At the end of my junior year I earned my Associates degree in Dental Hygiene (ASDH).   I passed the National Board Examination and the North East Regional Board Examination and became a registered dental hygienist (RDH).  I continued my education and earned my Bachelors of Science degree in dental hygiene and baccalaureate minor in psychology from the University of Rhode Island in 1998. In 2016 I earned my local anesthesia certificate from the University of Bridgeport. 

     As co-therapist to the doctor, I am the first clinician you will meet. Your first visit will be at least 60 minutes to allow me to take initial records, perform several types of examinations, and provide oral hygiene and dietary instruction. This may be the most thorough exam you have ever received in the dental office. The initial exam includes a review of your general health status and medical treatment history, a complete set of X-rays with reduced radiation by digital imaging, evaluation of the tissues and bone inside and surrounding your mouth, an oral cancer screening, a recording and evaluation of the teeth and present dental work, oral health education, and if time permits, aid with your home care by a professional cleaning.  Together with Dr. Lawrence, we will inform you of your oral health status and make appropriate treatment recommendations. I have been a permanent part of Dr. Lawrence’s office since September 2019. 

      Annually I participate in continuing education coursework.  I am certified to provide CPR and AED (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automatic External Defibrillation) by the American Heart Association (AHA).

     Dr. Lawrence’s office has a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere that promotes patient comfort.  We have fun while doing our jobs and providing exceptional quality of care.  I hope you find our office just as enjoyable.  I look forward to meeting you!
