Meet Our Lead Hygienist, Natalie Carducci Encouragement and Education

I came to Your Oviedo Dentist right after I graduated from Valencia with my associate degree in dental hygiene. It was part of a career path I had been following since I was young. As far back as I can remember, I’ve wanted to work in the field of dentistry, and it’s all thanks to my mom! From a time before I was born, my mom was a dental assistant. Then, growing up, I was always hearing about all things dentistry. When I was finishing high school, I found myself facing that all-important question: What am I going to do next? It wasn’t a hard decision. I wanted to follow in my mom’s footsteps. My mom encouraged me to get into dental hygiene, which comes with a unique set of opportunities. I followed her advice, and now I get to say I work with the best group of people I could have possibly asked for. They are a wonderful work family! I can’t forget to mention my family. I spend a ton of time with my parents, stepparents, siblings, and, of course, my loving husband. But the person I spend the most time with is our 2-year-old daughter. My day can’t get any better when I’m watching her explore the world. Whether we go to the park or to the beach, there’s always a new adventure around every corner. And, this summer, my daughter had her first swimming lessons! She’s been learning the basics, which will come in handy as she gets older and spends more time in the pool at my mom’s house and at the beach. Natalie Carducci

I’ve been a part of the Your Oviedo Dentist team for five years, and in that time, I’ve learned so much. I’d even say

I’ve learned more during these past five years than I did in college while pursuing my degree in dental hygiene — and that’s certainly a good thing!

Dentistry is always changing, and there will always be new things to learn. As our dental hygiene team lead, part of my responsibility is to stay up to date on everything related to patient care, along with keeping up with the needs of the practice in general. As you may know, education is a big deal at Your Oviedo Dentist. Learning is constantly encouraged by the doctors and by the team. Dr. Lopez and Dr. Colon (and now Dr. Delman!) have done everything to make continuing education as easy as possible, giving me, as well as our entire team, as many resources as possible. And this means we can do even more for you, our patients! As a team lead, I’m also a cheerleader for the team. I’m here to encourage and to make sure we are all on the same page when it comes to patients. It’s all about delivering a consistent, high level of care. The doctors set the bar high, and I do my part to maintain the excellence we’re known for.
