Melissa Whitman, RDH

Melissa graduated from Carrington College as a Registered Dental Hygienist in 2011 but has been working in the dental industry for 18 years! She has done it all from the front office to assisting dentists to hygiene. She chose to pursue a hygiene degree because she loves patient care and wanted to be able to help patients best maintain their oral health in order to live a healthy life. She was born and bred in North Idaho and spends her time outside the office with her husband and three kids hiking, camping, paddle boarding, and taking road trips!

She volunteers at church, plays volleyball, goes boating with family and friends, and loves being in the sunshine.
