Connie-RaeI grew up in a small town in Northern Ontario, Canada, and received my dental hygiene education and license from Cambrian College in Sudbury, Ontario Canada. I moved to California and was licensed here in the late '80s. First to Sacramento than the south bay area. I enjoy spending time and having fun with my husband and 3 grown children. (The last one just graduated from college. Yay!) We enjoy water skiing, sailing, snow skiing, and celebrating all of our life events together. I feel very blessed to enjoy my job as much as I do. My favorite part is educating my patients and cheering them on as they move towards healthy long term and stable dental health. I like to use a gentle, kind, and encouraging approach. I have been lucky enough to build some very enjoyable long-term relationships with my patients and their families. I look forward to continuing that!
