Hello

Colette smiling  in scrubs standing in front of a brick wall

Colette started this journey at Foothill College in 1999 when she was accepted into the dental assisting program directly following her high school graduation. As a child, she was always drawn to the medical field, performing treatments on her dolls, intending to take care of all of their health needs. Colette found her calling at a very young age.


She enjoys dentistry so much because of the promise it provides of endless learning and an opportunity to educate and heal others. She seeks and finds joy in identifying each clients' set of unique needs. Even after 24 years in the field, Colette embraces the daily challenge of rising to each occasion aimed at delivering exemplary care to all of her clients.


In 2021, she decided to get back to her studies. She applied to the University of the Pacific to obtain additional training for dental management of the medically compromised client. In 2022, she became a Registered Dental Hygienist in Alternative Practice, obtaining her third California

state license.


Colette is very happy to carry out her longtime career goal to serve, educate and to improve oral health awareness among the elderly, homebound and underrepresented populations in California.

Why It Matters

Caring for others with physical limitations was modeled early on in life for Colette. She grew up watching her mother navigate the limitations of society and the healthcare system for a very dear, chronically ill family member, Cousin Bob.


Cousin Bob contracted polio at the age of four. He had limited mobility of the right side of his body and depended on other people for much of his life to help him with necessary activities of daily living given his severe disabilities.


He spent the last twenty years of his life at Seton Medical Center on a ventilator. Over those twenty years, he was unable to safely leave the premises, which caused his dental condition to suffer greatly as a result.


Colette and her mother were frequent visitors and caregivers to Bob, and this is where her mobile dental hygiene dream began.


She always knew that if her journey allowed her to become a dental hygienist that she would have to find a way to reach other medically compromised individuals, who like Bob, had no option to seek outside dental care.


Cousin Bob is no longer with us, but his life and legacy continues to live through Colette’s dental hygiene pursuits.

"...Find mirth in dearth and dross, soldier on as a quiet, faithful mole in a soiled world, sail on through time enjoying its unfolding through history's reformulation of struggle.

Above all, be broad of thought, generous and quick to discern the way you should go."
