HeidiI have over 17 years experience as a Registered Dental Hygienist. I have served the La Jolla Community for over 9 years and noticed a need that not been addressed. I began visiting local Long Term Care facilities in the La Jolla community and offering to educate the health care providers on the proper home care for their patients. Recent research has shown a link between periodontal disease (gum disease) and other systemic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pancreatic cancer, aspiration pneumonia, and pre-term low birth weight babies to name a few. I felt, with all of this recent research, it was important for all patients in these facilities to be receiving the proper care. This, in turn, motivated me to pursue a new path and begin visiting the patients who were no longer physically able to visit the dental office.

My Mission

To provide patients who are not physically able to visit their dental offices quality dental hygiene care in an alternative practice setting. I am committed to the optimum oral health of my patients and will strive to foster patient relationships based on mutual trust, excellent customer service, and the highest level of care available.
