Emily, Certified Dental Hygienist

Meet Emily, Certified Dental Hygienist

Emily, Certified Dental HygienistEmily is originally from Baton Rouge, LA, but spent most of her youth in Las Vegas.

She went to UNLV, where she graduated with a BS in nutritional science in 2004.

Her sister however, who is a Dental Hygienist, convinced her to seek a change in careers. So this mother of two boys went back to school and in 2009 Emily graduated from CSN with an Associate’s Degree. Almost immediately after her graduation she started working at Smile Designers.

“It’s funny how things sometimes work. My sister talked me into becoming a Dental Hygienist for the opportunities and because that’s what she went to school for. Now my sister doesn’t work in the field, but I do”, Natalie says. She adds: “Just because you went to school for something, doesn’t mean that’s the end. There are so many opportunities out there, you just have to go do it.”

Emily lives with her husband, their two children and a pet tortoise named Squirt.
