Brittany loves being able to treat patients in the city she has grown up in and loved. A native of Cleveland, Brittany graduated from Walker Vally High School and then went on to be trained in Dental Hygiene at Hiwassee College. As a student, Brittany would observe in our office and even practiced injections on Dr. May and Dr. Kirksey. All that practice paid off, because our patients praise Brittany for her gentleness.
Brittany is always looking for ways to expand her knowledge in her field. She enjoys learning the newest techniques and even traveled with our other hygienist, Leslie, to New York City to study laser therapy as it is used in dental hygiene. She loves to seek out the least invasive ways to treat different problems that arise with gums and cleaning. Her favorite part of dental hygiene is watching a patient progress and seeing the improvements they make in their dental health and confidence after a thorough dental cleaning.
In her spare time, Brittany loves to spend time with her family. She is also the proud parent of a border collie, Max, who recently started doggie day care. They both love walking on the greenway.
We love having Brittany at our office and believe that she lives out her favorite quote, "Be the change you wish to see in the world."
