Heidi Lien, RDH, BS, MEDT
I have been a Dental Hygienist for over 30 years and I love my profession! I have worked in the dental field through private practices, group practices and a periodontal office. I worked with Dr. Curtis from 2004 to 2010 and was a sub hygienist a few times over the last few years. I am excited to be back in this office with Dr. Jensen and reunite with these wonderful patients.
For the last seven years, I have been teaching Dental Hygiene at Carrington College. I was even the program director for 2 of those years and completed my Master’s Degree in Educational Technology.
I have been married to my husband, Chris, for 30 years and both of our sons are in college. This is a great time for us as empty nesters.
But, now I am back to private practice and am excited to work with the patients educating them about the importance of oral health.
