Maryam, our Dental Assistant

I joined DiVerde Dental Studio in May of 2019. I am very proud to be part of this state of the art practice.

I received my dental hygiene degree from Harper College in May of 2014. I have recently obtained laser periodontal therapy training and certification to treat gum disease, and help my patients achieve optimal clinical results.

As a dental hygienist I believe in a thorough and gentle touch. I strive to make each appointment go as smoothly and painlessly as possible. While I love helping my patients achieve a healthy beautiful smile, I also enjoy conversing with them, and sharing fun life experiences.

In my Leisure time, I like to stay active, plan out new Adventures, explore the outdoors, and travel.
