DebDeb– Dental Hygienist

Meet Deb, our energetic, caring and sincere Dental Hygienist. Deb joined the team in February 2018, which was a blessing for our office. Deb grew up in Stanton, Nebraska, and trained at UNMC College of Dentistry. Early on in her career, Deb was a dental assistant. She decided to continue her education and become a dental hygienist.

As a dental hygienist, Deb assesses oral health conditions, reviews your medical history, takes dental x-rays, and can help provide appropriate oral hygiene strategies to maintain oral health. Deb provides dental cleanings, which includes the removal of calculus and plaque (hard and soft deposits) from all surfaces of teeth. She monitors periodontal health and provides periodontal maintenance services. A dental hygienist is a valuable team member and we are privileged work with Deb. Deb works Mondays at Steckelberg Dental.
