When hygienist Nilsa Rozon immigrated to the U.S. from the Dominican Republic, the first thing she did was enroll in a dental hygiene program. “I have three cousins who are also hygienists,” she says, “and I always loved going to the dentist. So as soon as I learned about the program, I signed up. I’ve loved it ever since.”

And she knows the impact good oral hygiene can have on your self-esteem. “When I was younger,” she says, “I was really not very confident about my smile. But I had a good dentist, and I had braces for a while, and together we made a difference. That’s what I love to do.”

When it comes to home hygiene habits, Nilsa focuses on the positive, and always takes the time to walk through proper techniques. “I didn’t become a hygienist to criticize people,” she says. “I want to motivate you! Whether you’re a good flosser, or a bad flosser, or don’t even floss at all, it’s okay. I’ll walk you through it. I’m here to help.”
