Hygienist Eden Ros says she always knew this would be the job for her. “My mom is a dental assistant,” she says, “and I just grew up feeling really safe and comfortable going to the dentist. My hygienist would never lecture me or yell at me for forgetting to floss. She always had patience, and it made a big difference.”

In her practice today, Eden prioritizes making sure you feel comfortable and in control. “It’s important that we trust each other,” she says, “which is why I always make a point to form relationships with my patients. Often my patients who need work done will ask me what I’d do in their situation, and it means a lot that they trust me enough to take my advice.”

But Eden also thinks a trip to the dentist has room to be more than just comfortable. “I want to make the dental experience fun,” she says. “So many people dread going to the dentist, and they’re missing out on this critical aspect of their healthcare. That’s really why I became a hygienist—to help create an environment where people actually enjoy going.”
