Natalie has recently joined our staff here at Aspen Creek Dental.  Her family lived in Idaho for many years but has spent the last 2 1/2 years in Northern Virginia near Washington DC for her husband’s employment.  While they had a great time there seeing many things, they are glad to be back in Idaho and the Treasure Valley among family and friends.  Natalie has enjoyed a career in Dental hygiene for over 27 years and has treasured interacting with patients and staff.  One of the best parts of her job is her opportunity to get to know her patients and help them discover a road to better oral health.  While not at the office she loves spending time with her husband and children.  Her most favorite things are attending her son’s basketball games, eating out, and face timing her 2 older girls away at college.  She is excited to get to know more of our patients here at Aspen Creek Dental.
