We asked Karen what she enjoyed most about working at Bright Life Dentistry:
"Working here has changed my whole attitude and outlook about my profession as a dental hygienist. After years of being in the profession, I have worked with all types of dentists and team members but never have I had the priviledge to work with a group that is not only excellent at what they do but passionate about our practice and our patients. I believe having that passion has taken this practice to a whole new level in oral health care. One that I have never experienced before. Imagine walking into a practice that has completely upbeat personalities, modern dentistry, multiple hours of continuing education every month, that is not dictated by what insurance companies allow but is dictated by our commitment to be the best. Nothing makes me happier than a patient who thanks us for making a difference."
