Michelle has been licensed as a dental hygienist in Florida since 2008. She attended Hodges University and Edison State College in Fort Myers after arriving from Brazil in 2005. Michelle holds a dental degree in Brazil, and during her schooling abroad, Michelle has performed many community service hours in poverty stricken areas where she was exposed to all aspects of periodontal diseases and their treatments. Her exposure to such diverse dental procedures allowed Michelle to fine tune her skills as a dental hygienist to better perform procedures in our office. One of her main goals is educating our patients on proper oral health and preventive care.
