Healthy Mouth Healthy Life Podcast
My name is Carrie Ibbetson and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist with nearly 20 years experience in the dental world. I have worked as a dental assistant, front office coordinator, and as a dental hygienist. I like to think that because I have immersed myself in all facets of the dental office that I have a pretty rounded idea of what dentistry and dental offices are all about. One unique thing about my career is that I have spent many years working as a temporary fill in for offices (think substitute teacher). This has given me a really broad idea of what other offices are like, and has helped fuel my passion for amazing products and helping people connect the dots about their own health. For quite a few years I had a gypsy style mentality of living, traveling and exploring. Dentistry always allowed me to both pick up and move, or it allowed me to find work if I decided I was ready for a change. I would not change my experiences, but I can say that it has helped me to understand why many people find frustration or distrust in the dental offices they visit.
