Carole – Registered Dental Hygienist
Carole is a registered Dental Hygienist. She received her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene at Loyola University in 1993.

Carole considers this as she customizes each patient’s home care regime and supplies the knowledge and tools to best maintain excellent oral health. Carole is laser certified and participates in continuing education throughout the year.
Carole is the proud mother of three of our favorite patients. When she’s not at soccer games cheering her kids on, she enjoys running, cooking, and traveling.
