Celine graduated from a Kentucky dental assisting school in 2015. One of her goals as a dental assistant is to make patients feel comfortable while they are in our office, and to help them become more trusting of dental professionals so they will want to continue coming in routinely instead of just when they are experiencing pain. When she is not at the office she is spending time with her 2 sons, napping, hiking, kayaking, taking road trips and trying new foods. She loves making new friends and helping others feel optimistic and at ease.
