Becky Tarbett: RDH, Hygienist

I have been in the field of dentistry for over 20 years. I was a dental assistant for roughly 10 years before going to dental hygiene school, where I graduated with high honors from the College of Southern Nevada in 2010. I was the recipient of the 2010 Clinical Excellence Award and received the golden scaler trophy, which is one of the highest awards to be granted in dental hygiene school. My husband and I moved our small family to southern Utah from Las Vegas a little over 7 years ago. My husband is currently a fire captain for the city of North Las Vegas Fire Department and commutes to work. We have two wonderful children and we love traveling with them for sport competitions and tournaments. We just love being with each other and watching our kids compete. We absolutely adore it here in Southern Utah and feel it was the best decision we ever made for our family. I am very passionate about dental hygiene and cherish helping my patients obtain optimal oral health and general health.
