Liina – CRDH
Dental Hygienist Liina comes to us from Saaremaa, a small island off the coast of Estonia. She was an au pair when she arrived in the USA over 15 years ago. While growing up in Estonia, she did not receive any type of preventive dental care. She became interested in dentistry when she went to the dentist in the USA for the first time. She learned that through preventive care and good home care, people can actually keep healthy teeth for life and that losing teeth is not a normal part of aging.
Liina graduated from the Palm Beach County Community college of dental Hygiene in 2008 with the Academic Excellence Award for the highest GPA, the Golden Scaler Award for outstanding clinician and the Dental Hygiene Honor Society membership award. On September 12, 2011, she was sworn in as a US citizen. (Congratulations Liina!)
Liina was actually in another dental office waiting for an interview when she met Dr. Diaz’ supply rep. He told Liina that she should meet
with Dr. Diaz. The next day, she dropped off her resume and the rest is history.
Liina believes that having a beautiful and healthy smile is very important to one’s self confidence and overall well-being. She enjoys being
a part of others achieving that healthy beautiful smile.
The next time you are in the office, be sure to ask Liina about her two adorable cats, Nahla and Puma.
Liina’s favorite quote:“Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small steps”.
