Dental Hygienist

My name is Patty, one of two hygienists you may meet in our office.

I have been a dental hygienist for twenty years and have worked with Dr. O'Neill for over 4 years. I have lived in Columbia, SC for almost 29 years.

I graduated in 1982 from Richland Northeast High School; in1984 I graduated from Midlands Technical College with an Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene.

I absolutely love the ever changing and exciting field of dental hygiene. In our office I try to help my patients understand the importance of good oral hygiene, and how it affects not only their mouths, but their bodies.

My husband and I have been married for almost 20 years and have been blessed with 2 lovely daughters, a 15 year old and a 10 year old. Needless to say, our girls keep us very busy. Our family really enjoys soccer, and yes I am a soccer mom. Both girls play soccer, while my husband coaches and is a referee.

I look forward to meeting all our patients; remember a bright beautiful smile is only a call away.
