Rachel - Registered Dental Assistant & Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been working in the dental industry since 2004. I have a Bachelor of Science, with a focus in Biology and am a member of the National Collegian Honor Society. I started as a dental assistant and was nominated as runner-up for Dental Assistant of the Year in the country. I worked my way through dental hygiene school, graduating second in my class, and obtaining a license to administer local anesthesia.

I am dedicated to providing quality patient care and forming exceptional relationships with my patients and my co-workers. Dr Shukla and staff at Great Smiles work seamlessly together, and it is easy to recognize our uniformed goal to improve people’s dental and overall health conservatively.

When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my family, my dogs, and my friends. I am always keeping busy, and also spend time as a free-lance artist and an animal activist.
