Donna, Registered Dental Hygienist
Donna’s career in the dental field covers over 15 years so far – in fact, she decided in the 7th grade that she wanted to be a hygienist! Her aunt and two of her sisters also have the same job, so it must run in the family. She completed her degree at Wharton County Junior College. What she loves most about her role at Sweeny Family Dental is getting to work in her local community and take such good care of patients!
