Meet the Team
Michelle, RDH, QOMDental Hygienist/Clinical Coordinator
Michelle began her hygiene career with Dr. Danner many years ago, then returned in 2018 after taking a break to raise her two sons, who are now in high school and college. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene from West Liberty University, and many of our longtime patients remember when she was first with us after graduating! She is also our Infection Control coordinator and has helped to implement many new protocols as our office has addressed additional safety measures related to preventing COVID-19.
Her responsibilities include overseeing our hygiene program, including the Perio Protect system, as well as coordinating the clinical details for patients undergoing treatment for compromised airway, sleep apnea and jaw pain. In 2020, she achieved certification as a Qualified Oral Myologist, which allows her to provide myofunctional therapy for patients undergoing VIVOS treatment for compromised airway. She has specialized training in VIVOS from the Institute for Craniofacial Sleep Medicine in Denver, Colorado.
Away from the office, she enjoys spending time with her boys, home improvement and home decorating projects, and playing with her corgi Omar.
