Deb graduated from the School of Dental Hygiene at the University of Vermont (USA) in 1995. She began her career in dentistry in 1987, working both administratively and clinically as a chairside assistant. Deb has a passion for clinical dental hygiene, but mostly a strong desire to make dental visits stress-free and even… fun! She truly believes 'an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure'.
Originally from the state of Vermont, Deb settled in New Zealand in 2004, calling Picton her new home. Over that decade she practised in both Blenheim and Nelson.
