Making a Difference in Your Dental Care

Dental Staff Who Make a Difference This Massachusetts native was once a certified aerobics instructor. Having received her BS degree in dental hygiene, she moved to Seattle, joined North Seattle Dental, where she’s been delivering All-Star dental care to her patients as a dental hygienist for over 35 years. Her favorite part about her job? The patients! Since her time here, she’s also heard plenty of really funny stories, but she’ll never tell – so your secret’s always safe with her. Here’s a little Q & A with Barb.
