Crown Dental Celebrates National Dental Hygiene Month
Did you know that October is National Dental Hygiene Month?
At Crown Dental, we’re taking a minute to celebrate by sharing some fun facts about our two dental hygienists who go above and beyond when it comes to patient care and professionalism.
Meet the Dental Hygienist Dream Team!
Not everyone is cut out to manage the daily demands of a dental hygienist. That’s why we’re shining the spotlight on two of Crown Dental’s gems: Gina Samarel and Nancy Schalk.
If you haven’t met either of them before, we have to ask… when did you last get your teeth cleaned? Regular cleanings are critical to dental health and hygiene. Take a look at get in touch to schedule your appointment.
In the meantime, we invite you to learn a little bit about Gina…
Crown Dental’s Newest Hygienist: Gina Samarel
Here on Tuesdays, Gina is the newest member of the Crown Dental crew and we’re delighted to have her on staff.
“I’ve been in dental hygiene for many years and especially enjoy meeting and treating new patients and seeing established patients on a regular basis. I have formed many friendships throughout the years with many of them. I love teaching patients about their oral health and seeing their progress in maintaining oral health and overall health. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, reading, trying new foods, and anything at the beach. My favorite pastime is spending quality time with my family!”
A Familiar Face: Nancy Schalk
Most of our clients know and love Nancy, who has been with Crown Dental since day one and has worked as a dental hygienist for 33 years!
“What’s not to love about coming into work and spending my days with such a fun group of people?
My patients make me laugh and I learn more from them than they probably do from me. It’s been a great choice of careers for me. Heck, not even a pandemic can keep me away! When I am not with my dental family, I am spending time with my husband. We are newly “empty nesters,” as our two daughters have headed off to college. I devote my free time to photography, volunteering and planning future vacations!”
Quick to make us laugh, even our recent testimonials speak to Nancy’s sense of humor: “Nancy, the hygienist, was gentle and put me at ease with her humor. I, actually, enjoyed my dental appointment. Would give 10 stars if I could!”
We couldn’t do what we do at Crown Dental without the expertise, care, and compassion shown in spades by our dental hygienists. Thank you, Gina and Nancy!
