  • Peggy Kirk

    Dental Hygienist

    I have had the opportunity of practicing dental hygiene in many settings and several states over the years since graduating from Shoreline Dental Hygiene program. Among the states I’ve practiced are California, Colorado, and Illinois before coming home to the Northwest. The last several years have been here in this office, which has allowed me to get to know many patients from diverse backgrounds and countries on a personal level. This has made my career very rewarding as I treat patients and make new friends.
