Connie's professional journey spanned over three decades as a dental hygienist, a role she embraced wholeheartedly. Her passion for her work was palpable, and her gentle touch and caring demeanor touched the lives of countless patients. Beyond her exceptional skills, it was Connie's vibrant and welcoming personality that made her a favorite among colleagues and patients alike.
