Amber Williams RDH--Hygienist
My name is Amber Williams. Growing up I only wanted to be two things…a marine biologist or a dental hygienist. As oceans are scarce in Utah, I choose the latter. I took classes at USU in Vernal, UVCC (currently UVU) and graduated from CNCC in 1991. I started my dental hygiene career on the Wasatch Front, moved back to the Basin in 1994, and joined Dr. Smuin’s practice in 1996. I have 2 active, sport- loving boys and a husband, which makes me the “princess” of the family. I have been blessed to work part time, so she can participate in family activities. I take great joy in sharing information with others. When I don’t my fingers in mouths, I have found a captive audience! I am often on my soapbox professing my testimony of fluoride, Xylitol, drinking less soda, flossing, etc. My greatest days are when patients return and have incorporated better habits in their oral lives. I know that good oral health benefits the entire body. When I am not fighting for oral health, I love to be with my family. Our family loves to travel and I try to make sure the ocean is visited as much as possible, so I can pretend to be that marine biologist.
Rachelle Baum RDH
My name is Rachelle Baum RDH. I received my Associates of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene from Colorado Northwestern Community College in 1998, and have worked at Dr. Smuin’s office for 15 years. I enjoy helping our patients care for their teeth but I am currently taking some time off to raise my 5 children. I miss seeing the faithful patients who have become my friends over the years. When I’m not busy with my family I enjoy boating, reading, and camping. Although it has been great to take some personal time I look forward to returning when baby Paisley gets a little older.
