My name is Heather, and I am a dental hygienist in Dr. James G. Hood’s office. I am an Eastern Washington University graduate with a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene.   I joined Dr. Hood and staff at Dental Care Associates of Spokane Valley in September 2009, and I greatly enjoy working in this practice.  As a dental hygienist, I am committed to helping my patients achieve the best oral health possible through our combined efforts.  I believe in educating my patients so they can make informed decisions regarding their oral health.  As a former elementary teacher, I believe education is the key to success.  I enjoy meeting new people, building relationships, and creating trust between myself and my patients.

I grew up near Spokane, and I will always consider the Pacific Northwest my home.  I am married to my high school sweetheart.  We have two small Schnoodles (schnauzer and poodle mix).  In September 2010, we welcomed our first child.  We have been overjoyed to get to know our daughter.  I love being a mom.
