Hygienist Highlight – Stephanie Estrada

TJ8C3112I live in: El Segundo.

I attended dental hygiene school at: West Los Angeles College.

I became a dental hygienist because: I always loved going to the dentist growing up and when looking into a career change and going to dental school a retired dentist suggested I become a dental hygienist instead, because I had the personality for it and it would be a lot less stressful and more flexible than being a dentist.

The thing I enjoy most about being a dental hygienist is: developing strong patient-provider relationships, so the patients have fun, but at the same time, they know they are receiving the best care and are genuinely cared for.

My mentor is: Dr. Calleros, since they day I got hired she has provided me with a platform to continually grow professionally and has always shown me enormous support and encouragement over the years.

My favorite oral hygiene aid: Interproximal Brush, they are really great for removing plaque and preventing build up, especially in the bottom front teeth, where so many people build up calculus.
