UDHA Membership Spotlight: Raimey Ann Escoto, RDH, BSDH, RDHAP
We are so lucky to have the best members here in Utah who are dedicated to our patients and profession. Raimey is one of these members. She's passionate about educating patients, as well as serving patients who may not be able to visit the traditional brick and mortar office that we've traditionally had.
I have been a dental hygienist for fourteen years. I received my Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene degree from the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni’s School of Dentistry in California. I worked in private practice for three years, and then worked for a community health center for 10 years. In 2018, I completed Arthur A Dugoni’s Education Program in Oral Health for People with Special Needs and received my RDHAP license (registered dental hygienist in alternative practice). I moved back to my birth state of Utah in 2020 and have been working at Platinum Dental Care’s North Logan office ever since.
My favorite part of dental hygiene is the opportunity to educate patients about their dental conditions and teach them how to properly care for their teeth and gingiva. I love seeing the improvement in their oral health when they implement the home care instructions we discussed and practiced. I also love the instant gratification that comes from removing heavy calculus and staining...so much satisfaction getting those teeth clean and showing patients their before and after pictures and radiographs!
