Deni

Dental Hygienist

Deni graduated from the Dental Hygiene Program at Harper College.

Deni is our dental hygienist here at Mount Prospect Smiles. For Deni, being a dental hygienist is her passion! Having been a dental hygienist for more than Fifteen years, She has seen many changes and advances in the field of dentistry. The most monumental change for her is the reality of connection that exists between one’s oral health and their overall general health. It is heartwarming to get to know my patients on a personal level and to help each and every one of them to enhance their oral health and subsequently improve their general health. When she is not caring for her patients, Deni enjoy spending time with my family, exploring new restaurants and attending dental seminars.
