Nicole, RDH — For more than 23 years, I’ve worked in dental hygiene with the goal of helping my patients achieve and maintain ideal oral health. Since joining Dr. Calhoon’s office in 2014, I have enjoyed meeting new patients and catching up with established ones. I am also passionate about giving my best individualized care daily, making patients feel comfortable, and easing their fears. I love seeing the improvement in my patients’ mouths while undergoing periodontal therapy and seeing fears turn into enthusiasm! I enjoy gardening, cooking, baking, reading, traveling, and of course, spending time with friends and family.
