Patti

Dental Hygienist

I am the dental hygienist for Dr. Rothchild. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from Carroll College in Helena, Montana. I am originally from Southern California but have lived in the Durango area for the past 21 years. I cannot imagine living anywhere else; I am here to stay and I love it here. I have been practicing dental hygiene for 41 years and I am still very excited and passionate about it. My goals when seeing patients is to provide the most comfortable and relaxing dental experience. I have been told by many patients that I am gentle and very thorough. I look forward to meeting and getting to know each of our patients as well as educating them on achieving their dental goals and overall health goals.

In my free time, my hobbies are horseback riding, golfing, tennis, waterskiing and snow skiing. I am happily married to my husband Tom. We will be celebrating 18 years of marriage in October.
