After I graduated from dental hygiene school in 1989, my first job was with Dr. Sinkin. So, we have worked together for over 20 years! We don’t compromise a thing when it comes to the quality of work. I am also a licensed acupuncturist. The best part of being both a registered dental hygienist and a licensed acupuncturist is that the stress and anxiety relieving techniques of acupuncture can really help when patients are in the dental chair. And, if you are allergic to Novocain, acupuncture can be instrumental in relieving discomfort. Personal facts: I enjoy sports and am a huge Mets fan!
