NICOLE, RDH

Nicole is a 2007 graduate of Prairie State College with an Associate degree in Applied Science for dental hygiene. She takes pride in her work by attending continuing education seminars and lectures on all the latest research and technology to be able to provide excellent hygiene care for our guests. She is very thorough and gentle when she cleans teeth. This is a rare combination. She can access the health of gums so gently that you hardly even know you are at the dentist. She is our guardian of the gums.

Her passion for dental hygiene has inspired her to help start a dental clinic on an orphanage in the Dominican Republic and she has also volunteered her services with the team, Mission of Mercy, which offered free dental care to over 1,900 people in two days.

Outside of work, she is a proud mom and loves spending time with family and friends, enjoys running, biking, ceramics, scrapbooking, and traveling. One of her favorite vacations being a three week trip all throughout Europe. At Tharp Dental, her gentle touch, meticulous instrumentation, and communication skills make her a valuable asset to our team.
