Brittany - Registered Dental Hygienist

12 years experience
 
Brittney’s hobbies include: being a member of Women of Worth (WOW Church Group), Sharing Young Living Essential Oils, Family time and Music.
 
Brittney absolutely loves being a part of Team DSM. Our goal as a team is ultimately to educate our patients on their mouth and their needs and then this in turns allows our patient to make the best long-term dental decisions for themselves.  Brittney feels honored to work alongside Dr Thompson in the most meticulous and articulate dental surgery cases.  The technology aspect is astonishing and she stays completely intrigued.  The process of walking with a patient through their dental journey from start to finish and to watch them regain their confident smile, is so rewarding.  She loves the challenge of taking the severely apprehensive patient regarding dentistry and meeting them exactly where they are,at that very moment and reassuring them that they are deserving and the walk is definitely worth it. 
 
 My goal as a dental assistant is truly building a relationship with each patient and making a connection which results in sharing life stories and laughter.  I am truly humbled to be part of such an amazing dental family.  I did not realize that I could truly love my job as much I do!

Heather Schwartz, Registered Dental Hygienist
1st year – Amarillo College Graduate, May 2021

Hobbies: Crafting, painting, baking, traveling, outdoor activities (fishing, camping, archery, tennis), hanging out with family, friends, and my dog-Daisy.

I love everything about the dental hygiene field, from the time my patient walks into the room to the time my patient leaves. I enjoy being able to make a difference by doing thorough assessments, cleaning teeth, and educating my patient. Many individuals are unaware of how the mouth affects the body and vice versa; therefore, dentistry is so important as the mouth is a gateway to the body. I love helping my patients find a treatment plan that benefits them as well as providing materials and making suggestions that help my patients improve their oral health. I feel best when my patients feel like they have a clean, fresh confident smile they’re ready to share with the world. Please come see us at Dental Studio; we’re waiting for you!
