Colorado’s loss is our gain. Brittany moved to Austin for an adventure and loves it. She’s been in hygiene for four years after completing her dental hygiene program at Colorado Northwestern Community College in Rangely, Colorado. We have really enjoyed having her smiling face at our office every day! Her determination to maintain our high standard of dental care through patient education and patient comfort are part of why she fits in so well with us. She loves snowshoeing, hiking and snowboarding but she’ll have to search for some new Austin-friendly hobbies!
