What I Do: Dental Hygienist. Every day I meet new people, build relationships, and care for them. Every time a patient comes in, I love to catch up with them like we are old friends. I impact lives by educating patients about their oral health; and on some occasions, I even get to save lives by discovering life threatening medical conditions they may not have been aware of before. I do all this during your above average "cleaning" appointment :)
What I Do When I’m Not At Work: I spend a lot of time with my family. We love to hunt for waterfalls while hiking, search for stories in Books-A-Million, and share a big bucket of popcorn during a movie together at the theater! On Sundays we go to Liberty Christian Church, and make memories with expanded family during Sunday dinner.
What Makes Me Smile: Food! Most food makes me smile! Hearing great news from someone gets me so excited! Seeing someone improve and heal also makes me happy.
Patients Would Never Guess This About Me: I have lost over 100 pounds. I am very determined and strong willed. When I set a goal I do all I can to reach it! Back in 2008, I set a goal to get healthy. I did it, and will always continue to do it! Anyone looking for a gym partner??
On My Bucket List: The #1 thing on my bucket list is going to Germany. I was born there, but have no memories from living there. I want to lay my eyes on the beautiful country, and maybe discover something I never knew!
"I have never received such individual attention and care, from the moment I walked in the door through the entire cleaning and exam. A completely comfortable and satisfying experience. I look forward to having Dr. Gooch's team take care of my dental health for years to come."Amber L.
