Hi, my name is Liz and I have been affiliated with Blue Ridge Dental Care since 2016. I fell in love and married a man who proudly serves in the military. We don't have children, so our pets are our kids. We have three dogs and two parrots. I love my little zoo. You can find me spending my off days from work at the dog park with my fur babies, or volunteering at a dog shelter. Recently, I started dabbling in photography because my husband bought me a fancy camera. I really like capturing the moment, and taking portraitures. I have been practicing dental hygiene for over six years. I graduated with honors and received the Golden Scaler Award from Hu-Friedy for displaying more than exceptional skills and talents in a clinical setting. I pride myself on total patient satisfaction. I love creating a positive dental experience by tailoring the treatment I am providing to fit the specific needs of the patient. I am excited to be apart of a team whose main focus is based on quality of care. I am enthusiastic about my career, and look forward to meeting you!
