Caroline loves learning, as exemplified by her extensive academic background. Graduating magna cum laude with an Associates of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene, Caroline also holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Bachelors Degree in Spanish from Ohio State University. She’s been working in dentistry since 2010 and is a great new addition to our team. Caroline delivers outstanding preventive dentistry, ensuring our patients have healthy smiles that last. She provides periodontal care, polishes and cleans teeth, and discusses at-home care and healthy routines to maintain a beautiful smile. She loves how her job allows her to develop a relationship with her patients, and she’s able to educate and assist them in making the right choices for their smile. She knew as early as second grade that she’d have a future in dentistry and used to play “dentist” with her siblings as a child. She believes in helping the underserved populations receive access to dental care, especially children, and is currently serving as VP of the Cleveland Dental Hygienist’s Association (CDHA), representing Cleveland at the state level. With her sorority’s Alumni Association, Chi-Omega, she raises money for Make-A-Wish Foundation and volunteers on her own for the St. Augustine Health Ministry. She recommends children read “The Real Tooth Fairy”, which will guide them through the transition to adult teeth while maintaining the magic of the tooth fairy. When she’s not busy at our office, Caroline is likely exercising, biking in the summer, or relaxing with her cat, Max.
