Julie, our Dental Hygienist

I have been a dental hygienist for over 30 years practicing in both general and periodontal dentistry. I am passionate about health and wellness and believe a healthy person begins with a healthy mouth. It is the entryway to your body. Dental hygiene is my first career, however through the past several years I have been able to pursue two other careers in which I am equally passionate about. I have been an Integrative Nutritionist for the past eight years and a yoga instructor for the past two years. What I love about all three of these careers is the unique opportunity I have to educate others and nourish them with knowledge and empathy to increase others’ well-being.

In addition to this, the largest role life has given me is being a mother. I am raising three beautiful daughters who are in the middle of going to college and starting careers. Watching them grow up and mentoring them through life has been one of my greatest joys.

I am so fortunate to be a part of DiVerde Dental Studio and the team of amazing people that work here. I am inspired by the genuine relationships that are pursued within the team and with all the patients that walk thru the doors.
