Hygienists

Brittani

Registered Dental Hygienist

Brittani was introduced to the idea of pursuing a career in the dental field by the encouragement she received from her mom and a hygienist friend of hers. After assisting chair side for a bit Brittani agreed, “Mom knew best”. Off she went to BYU, and then to Coastal Bend College in Texas, there she received her Associate degree in Dental Hygiene. For over 14 years, Brittani continues to enjoy creating lasting relationships with patients while helping to educate and inform them of their dental health needs in a way that is easily understood. Her patients look forward to her cheerful disposition and her great appreciation towards even life’s smallest details; it’s natural for her to share both with all that meet her.

The East Valley of Arizona is where Brittani grew up, a rare native. Along with her husband, twin daughters, and a son, she raises the next generation of Arizona natives. Brittani is devoted to the needs of her family and cherishes each moment they share together. As her children are now all in elementary school she gets to spend a little more time embracing her love for reading. Brittani plays the piano; although, she claims she can’t sing a note. She feels blessed to share in family travels near and far alike.



Melinda

Registered Dental Hygienist

As a graduate of the Mesa Community College Dental Hygiene Program, Melinda is very organized and has a keen sense for detail. Her wish is to share love and kindness with every person she meets. Therefore, spending time with patients day after day allows Melinda the opportunity to provide oral health procedures, maintenance, and education necessary to achieve the ultimate goal of overall health for each individual.

Before Melinda decided to pursue her career in the dental field, she previously studied music performance while playing the flute at ASU. Now, her life revolves around being married to the love of her life. Together they parent a school age son with fire red hair and a personality to match, and a baby boy whom we await to see if he follows his big brothers influence. As a self proclaimed band geek/nerd, she enjoys musical films, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Superheroes. This all explains her wish for everyday life to be more like a musical; as she and others around her hear melodies, breaking out in song at any given moment would be a normal occurrence!


Lucely

Registered Dental Hygienist

We had the honor of hiring Lucely, a graduate from the Hygiene Program at Mesa Community College. Even though she has no longer been studying in a structured classroom for some time, Lucely is always looking for the next opportunity to learn new things. As a dental hygienist she continues to stay informed of the latest dental breakthroughs and technology. In turn, she shares her acquired knowledge with patients to help maintain optimum dental health. Her focus to provide detailed and timely treatment for each of her patients may at first be interpreted as shyness, but once there is time to spare, nothing can stop Lucely from enjoying a good conversation session.

Lucely is the oldest of 5 siblings and was born and raised here, in Arizona. There are several interests that keep her busy once she is back home with her family, and away from her Higley Park Dental Care family. Going to the movies is something Lucely really enjoys, some classic favorites being Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Marvel adventures. She genuinely loves to read and is always looking for good recommendations…so share your thoughts please! Lucely also enjoys interior design, this makes one wonder why she states she tends to be “a bit of a homebody”. Maybe being home just inspires her creativity. 


Natalie

Registered Dental Hygienist

Prior to enduring the intensive commitment to become a Registered Dental Hygienist, Natalie was a Dental Assistant at Higley Park Dental Care. We are all incredibly happy to have her back treating our patients in her new role. Natalie has always been, and still is, professional, dependable, and caring. Educating patients about how best to care for their dental needs is a comfortable conversation that comes natural to her.

Natalie was born and raised in Arizona. Her and her family continue to be involved in many rodeo activities. Independence Day has always been one of Natalie’s favorite holidays. To her the July 4th weekend signifies endless time spent with family and community having fun making memories. Attending concerts and enjoying live music events has always been a favorite pastime of Natalie’s. Currently, raising a new puppy and traveling with her boyfriend has taken over her spare time.


Jisha

Registered Dental Hygienist

Our initial introduction to Jisha was to fill a temporary position. After seeing her many years of experience, work ethic, and enthusiasm, we just had to offer her a permanent position as a member of our team. Jisha is well trained as a Registered Dental Hygienist and offers much education to patients for maintaining a healthy smile. She enjoys making patients feel good about themselves and their oral health, as well as building a relationship with them. Her passion for dentistry started at age 17, over 20 years have passed, and she still enjoys it.

Jisha has relocated to Arizona from the state of Washington. As she loves to travel whenever she gets the chance, she also loves to be a foodie and try local trendy restaurants with new friends. Keeping fit and looking youthful is a goal she works hard to maintain. Being a mom to two dogs and many plants keeps her feeding and hydrating the living things she loves to share her home with!
