Born and raised in New York City, hygienist Raheema Ahmed has always loved going to the dentist. “I grew up in Queens, and I would always meet my mom in the city to see our dentist on Park Avenue,” she says. “It was super fancy, and it had this huge aquarium, like the one in Finding Nemo.”

It’s one of the reasons she decided to study hygiene herself: “I thought getting my teeth cleaned was the best feeling ever,” she says. “You almost feel brand new.” But it’s also about the personal connection: “One of my favorite parts of being a hygienist is how much time I get to spend with my patients one-on-one. I get to meet people from all walks of life.”

Raheema wants to make sure you feel great about coming to the dentist—and scheduling your next visit. “As a hygienist,” she says, “I have the ability to shape a patient's perception of dentistry through knowledge and understanding. The best feeling is when a patient who was nervous or anxious tells me they’re excited about their next appointment.”
