Vicky, RDH
Vicky, RDH | Hygienist

Smile Shop is privileged to have one of the best hygienists in the valley! Vicky graduated from the College of Southern Nevada as a Registered Dental Hygienist in 2013, and received her Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene in 2015. Vicky is meticulous and diligent in her work and will spend the time to educate her patients and teach them about their oral hygiene. Trust us – Vicky’s patients know that she’ll get on them if they are not brushing and flossing as they should be between visits! Vicky is a great asset to our team and we are lucky to have her join our Smile Shop family in 2017. Prior to practicing dentistry, Vicky worked at the Venetian Casino as a poker dealer. She and her family hail from the northeast state of Rhode Island, which unfortunately has misled them to follow the Patriots in the NFL. Despite this shortcoming, Vicky is a great and amazing team player to our dental group and wonderful mother to her little girl, Elliora.
