Dental Hygienist

Rachel graduated from the Utah College of Dental Hygiene in 2018 and has been a hygienist for 4 years. She loves her job as a dental hygienist and spending time with her patients and helping them understand how important their oral health is to their overall health. In addition to being a dental hygienist, she is also an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and the owner of Nourish the Good LLC. Her knowledge in nutrition has been a great contribution to our office, because she has been able to offer our patients a whole-body approach to dentistry. She is very knowledgeable about foods, supplements, and hygiene practices to build strong, cavity resistant teeth and prevent dental disease. Rachel is also very knowledgeable about sleep and airway disorders, particularly in how they relate to dental health. Instead of simply cleaning teeth, when she looks in someone’s mouth she sees airway disorders, sleep disorders, nutrient deficiencies, gut imbalances, and so much more. Our patients have appreciated this added value very much. She recently also became a Certified Lactation Consultant, and specializes in helping mothers with their postpartum nutrition. She is always learning and looking for ways to better serve her patients and her community. Aside from her professional work, Rachel loves to cook and create healthy recipes, enjoys painting, gardening, studies herbalism and enjoys finding wild edible plants, practices yoga, loves walking, hiking, camping, skiing, snowmobiling, and anything that involves spending time outside with her family. Jackson is the perfect place for her love of the outdoors and we are happy to have her in our office!
