Meet The Hygienists

Our Preventative Oral Healthcare Staff Are The Backbone Of Our Practice


Shalem Uribe


"I love my work because, through this work, I am able to serve my community by contributing to their overall Oral and Dental health and we know Prevention along with Treatment make a huge difference." To me each patient is an individual and I pride myself on asking and then listening; they know what has worked for them in the past and what has not and even though I have been a practicing Dental Hygienist for a number of years, I believe we are in a partnership. Together we develop a plan that works for them." Shalem aspired to work with Dr. Martin because he was highly recommended by a local Dental Hygienist who had worked for him for over 10 years. It was because of Dr. Martins's high quality work and advanced practices she rated him so highly. Shalem joined the team over a year ago.

When asked what she felt was the most important aspect of working with Dr. Martin she said, "I most appreciate the level of professionalism of this practice, the investment in a state-of-the-art approach to prevention and treatment and, most of all, the collaboration and teamwork of the support staff and Dr. Martin. All of it is designed to educate and serve the patient."


Cindy Chavez

"It was when I worked with a very professional Dental Hygienist right after college that I learned how important educating people about Oral Health and Dental Hygiene truly is. This was a real eye-opener for me and to a large degree why I chose a career as a Dental Hygienist. I feel fortunate that I was introduced to Dr. Martin by his previous Hygienist and was recently invited to join the practice."

Good Oral health and Dental Hygiene are, to Cindy, an important life practice. In her words, " Good Oral Health and regular dental cleaning are important for general health and well being; they elevate self-esteem, dignity, social integration and general nutrition."

FRIENDLY-CARING-COMFORTABLE are a three words that describe why Cindy feels this practice is perfect for any family and she, in addition to providing thorough high-quality cleaning, believes that her positive attitude and attentiveness to learning about each patient's past dental experiences insures they will have a positive experience at Michael Ray Martin DDS.
