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 and parenting a son with fire red hair and a personality to match. 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!


Nancy

Registered Dental Hygienist

“I love teeth - they are like pretty little pearls!” That sentiment, and the genuine love she holds in her heart for all her patients, are just two reasons Nancy is such an awesome dental hygienist. Every day for Nancy starts and ends with much energy, and enthusiasm, as she applies her full self to the responsibility of being part of the Higley Park Dental Care team. For over 14 years, Nancy continues to go out of her way for the individual needs of each patient, no matter how small or large a detail it may seem to others. Accommodating her patient always comes first.

Outside of work, Nancy has found different ways to help others by offering her time, dental knowledge, and hygiene skills. Volunteering in past programs like RESIST, has given her an opportunity to educate young students about tobacco products and oral cancers. Nancy has also volunteered to treat the preventive dental needs of teen girls at Black Canyon Juvenile Detention Center. This Arizona native is married and has three kids. She loves to spend time with her family playing games, hiking, reading, writing, and baking.


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. 


Maria

Registered Dental Hygienist

 

Maria has over 16 years’ experience as a Registered Dental Hygienist. Since graduating from Phoenix College, she has worked hard to develop the skills she offers with a kind and gentle touch. Helping patients improve and maintain their dental health is the reason Maria enjoys her career. During all hygiene appointments she is more than eager to educate and answer questions pertaining to all aspects of dental health.

Married with a school aged son, Maria is a native Arizonan. Originally from Douglas, she has enjoyed living in the Gilbert area for many years now. Although, that does not stop her from taking road trips to frequently visit family. Hiking and running and watching movies are all hobbies Maria enjoys with her family. Celebrating her son’s birthday is Maria’s kryptonite. She goes over the top every time…good thing it is only once a year! 


Amanda

Registered Dental Hygienist

Amanda works so diligently to provide her patients the best treatment possible. She is extra careful to not lose track of time in her quest for perfection. Once she had graduated from the Hygiene Program at Phoenix College, Amanda worked at several different dental offices. It was a goal of hers to one day find an office that she felt comfortable with how patient care standards represented her ethics. So here we are together, feeling great about representing each other. A perfect match!

After years of marriage and continuing to raise four children together…Amanda still refers to her spouse as “A Great Husband”. The calmness in her voice when she speaks about how renovations are going at their home is amazing, this because the projects are big enough to typically cause others stress and anxiety. Not Amanda, she seems to roll with it gracefully. As many other Arizona natives, she also enjoys being outdoors gardening and hiking. Her subtle, witty sense of humor always gets us laughing.
