My dental journey started in 1991 when I joined a dental office in my hometown in Germany. I decided to become a dental assistant. As a child I was always scared of the dentist. I wanted to be on the other side of the dental chair to make the patient feel more comfortable. In my eyes a patient should never be scared of their health care provider. We are here to provide exceptional dental care and put the patient at ease. I worked for six years as a dental assistant and front desk administrator until the wanderlust gripped me and decided to come to the United States and work as a nanny. I met a wonderful family in the Reisterstown area which asked me to stay with them for longer. That is when I chose to go to school for dental hygiene. In 2003, I graduated from Baltimore City Community College where I received my Associate degree in Dental Hygiene. In her free time, Nicole enjoys the outdoors, including hiking, biking, kayaking and exploring new areas. On rainy days, Nicole enjoys reading, movies and crafts, such as sewing and knitting.
