Dental Hygienist

Hello! I am a Dental Hygienist and the newest member of Doctor Rothchild’s team. I absolutely love the passion Doc and his team share for the care of our patients! I find myself looking forward to the future here and learning more about Doc’s philosophy and holistic approach within dentistry. I’m proud to say that I have been given the gift of desire to learn more…I retired from my “boy job” at a coal fired power plant in 2007 and actually went back to school at 48 years old!

Enrolling in San Juan College’s excellent Dental Hygiene program was the beginning of a very rewarding and positive new beginning for me. After many-many years at the power plant, I like to think of it as my “girl job!” Becoming a Dental Hygienist has allowed me to do something for people that they aren’t able to do for themselves. Educating and giving patients the tools they need to make healthy positive changes in their lives has been the most rewarding part of this new career!

I was born in Durango, CO and raised just across the border in Farmington, NM. This is where I had the privilege of raising two beautiful sons, whom blessed me with six wonderful grandchildren! My love Charles, is a humorous, loving, kind, Christian man. I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with him! We have two very spoiled barn cats, Gray May and Dash, they are the best security against mice and other critters. Charles and I love baseball – GO RED SOX! We also love camping and adventuring the mountains in Colorado like mountain goats and climbing in Moab, UT crawling the hot rocks like lizards. I love these wonderful places God has given us to play at!
