FAITH | REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST
Faith was born in Queens, NY and moved to South Carolina when she was five. She has now lived in Georgia for 10 years.

Showing patients that dental visits don’t have to be stressful or painful is one of Faith’s favorite parts of her job. Her most fulfilling cases are those of patients with gum disease, who are able to not only fight it, but improve their overall health and lifestyle. Faith feels right at home with the team at Flax Dental and is learning from Dr. Flax every day. For fun, Faith likes to exercise, practice yoga, travel, cook and spend time with her son Isaiah and her dog Chewy.
