Cathy , RDH

Dental Hygienist

Cathy is one of our dental hygienists and has been a part of this practice since 1997. She loves helping our patients achieve their optimal oral health. Whether it’s during a dental cleaning at a recare appointment or providing her patients with education regarding how to best take care of their mouths, Cathy strives to be kind and compassionate to all. She enjoys treating everyone as the unique individual that they are and feels that one of the best aspects of her job has been getting to know her patients personally over the past 24 years.

Cathy and her husband Richard reside in Westerville. They have four kids ranging in age from 30 to 15, so she stated that there’s “never a dull moment”.  In her spare time, Cathy can be found reading, playing the piano, or traveling with her family.
