Hello everyone. My name is Jeannean, and I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) for over 17 years now. I was one of the graduates of the first dental hygiene class right here at our local Columbia Basin College in Pasco, WA. Hygiene has been a cherished occupation for me as it allows me to care for and support people on their road to overall wellness. For myself, helping people to understand the benefit of taking care of themselves is a reward in and of itself. Doing this with a team of professionals like ideals here has been a big win for me.
On a more personal note, some hobbies that I have enjoyed through the years are traveling to some of the places I've read about in all those books since childhood. Traveling while being with my family, that I adore, is even better. I love being active, especially in a natural setting. For the last few years, I have steadily fallen in like with backpacking as a means of rejuvenating myself. Lastly, I enjoy having upbuilding faith-based conversations with anyone that will have it.
I hope to meet you soon and develop a lasting relationship of care and trust. Let's do this!
