Hi! My name is Betsey. I joined the team of registered dental hygienists here at Advanced Dental Care of Austin recently when the practice I had worked in for 20+ years merged with Dr. D’Abadie’s practice. I have enjoyed being in the dental field for over 30 years now. While growing up in Abilene, I started working part-time for my childhood dentist right after high school. This ultimately led me to dental hygiene school. I graduated from UTHSC-San Antonio and became a hygienist in 1988. After moving to Lubbock for a few years, I landed in the Austin area and have been here since 1992. I have two great kids that I love spending time with. My son is a student at Texas Tech and my daughter is a student at RRHS. I find being a dental hygienist to be very rewarding when I know I have made a difference in helping someone achieve dental health and have a positive dental experience. I look forward to meeting you and working together so we can meet your dental needs.
