College Avenue Dental is my first Dental Hygiene position since graduation. I feel very fortunate to have found a warm, caring, and knowledgeable practice to begin my career. The team here at College Avenue Dental strives to deliver high quality oral care while treating all patients like family. I find my job very rewarding and look forward to the many years to grow and learn as a part of this team.
