Meet Our Dental Hygienist

Aubrie

Registered Dental Hygienist

My name is Aubrie and I am from Spring Grove, IL. – a small suburb of Chicago. I got my Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene from the College of Lake County and completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Health Sciences at Arizona State University. I have been a Dental Hygienist since 2014. I have a passion for and love to educate patients on good oral hygiene habits and helping apprehensive patients feel more comfortable during their appointments. I strive to give patients the best experience possible when they get their teeth cleaned. When I am not at the office, I enjoy working out and competing in NPC competitions. When I am not at work or in the gym, you can find me playing with my two fur babies.
