Julie has been working as a Dental Hygienist on Hilton Head for 22 years so it’s safe to say she knows a thing or two. Aside from providing comprehensive dental care customized for each patient, she encourages patients to share their fears and truly listens to what they’d like to accomplish concerning their overall care. Her favorite part of the job is forming long lasting relationships with her coworkers and the patients. She has a wonderful husband, Jim, a beautiful daughter, Alexandria, and a mischievous dog, Bleu. She spends her free time enjoying the beautiful “ Low Country” with her family.
Christine has been working as a dental hygienist on Hilton Head for two years. Aside from being a dental hygienist she is an Ironman triathlete extraordinaire! She is passionate about teaching patients to understand the mouth-body connection. There is a direct correlation between oral disease and a higher incidence of several systemic diseases. Therefore the healthier your mouth the healthier your body! She is blessed with a wonderful husband and is “obsessed” with her dogs Charlie and Cooper.
