Erin Doffoney, RDH, BAS/Founder Techs For Teeth™

My passion is to bring skill, comfort and care through dental hygiene. My goal is to focus on patients who’ve had compromising dental experiences. There have been situations where some patients have gone untreated for extended periods of times, which allows me to help my patients find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their confidence. I know there is no single approach that is right for everyone. My vast experience in the dental field since 2000 includes a range of modalities consisting of; Soft Tissue Management, Paradigm Shifts in Technology, Clinical Behavior as well as Clinical Verbiage and Technique. My educational and professional background includes a Bachelor of Applied Science Degree from Clayton College and State University located in Atlanta, GA. Dental Hygiene Board Certified and Licensed in Georgia and California, with Certification in Local Anesthesia, Nitrous Oxide and Curettage from Southwestern College in San Diego, CA, a proud member of the American Dental Hygienists' Association (ADHA), National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) and a sponsor of AACD's Give Back A Smile program.
