Samantha McDermott, RDH, RDHAP
Registered Dental Hygienist, Registered Dental Hygiene in Alternative Practice
Education & Training:
Carrington College, Dental Hygiene Program, Sacramento CA
California Northstate University, RDHAP program, Elk Grove, CA
Professional Interests / Specialties:
I have been in the Dental field since 2003. I began as a Dental Assistant, but it was my drive and passion for learning that continued my educational path. In 2016, I finished my Degree in Dental Hygiene. I have since completed a specialty program, RDHAP that will allow me to reach the underserved community of homebound patients. Reaching those who are unable to obtain dental care is where I feel the most accomplished.
Philosophy of Care:
My philosophy of care is to provide safe and effective dental hygiene services. To practice safely and ethically in order to help people improve and maintain their oral health. To educate patients so they understand the connection of oral health and overall health. To always use evidence based critical thinking to reinforce the decisions I make.
What I love about working at SNAHC:
Since the start in May 2023, SNAHC has been a welcoming place. Working with the SNAHC team in providing care to all has been a great experience thus far. I love that at SNAHC, no matter what department, we greet each other with a smile in and outside the office. Patients see our SNAHC badges outside of the building and are happy to tell us the stories about their wonderful experiences at SNAHC. I am glad to be a part of such a wonderful team.
