Jeannine - Dental Hygienist
My name is Jeannine, and I am the dental hygienist for Dr. Irvin. I have been here since the summer of 2014. My duties include taking x-rays, periodontal scalings, cleanings, and patient education.
I graduated from Thomas Jefferson University in 1987 with a bachelor's degree in dental hygiene, so I am currently celebrating my 30th year in this field!
I love working with children because I have seen that when we treat them appropriately, they actually like coming to the dentist! I also like to help fearful patients by treating them gently and patiently. Hopefully, I can minimize their fear a little more each time they visit. It makes me very happy and proud to see someone who was scared became a calm, healthy patient.
I'm married with a daughter in college, and in my free time, I love to read, travel, and walk my dog.
