Melanie Epstein
Dental Hygienist

Melanie began working for BDC in 2014 as an assistant and transitioned to a Registered Dental Hygienist in 2017, as she wanted to continue her growth. Melanie feels inspired everyday by her “amazing” teammates and her desire to influence and change her patients’ oral health. As a hygienist, she aims to make patients feel comfortable in order to effectively provide for their dental needs. It brings Melanie joy being able to practice what she loves in such a positive work environment with a team that she considers to be more like a close-knit family. Melanie loves that she can rely on her teammates for anything. She says there’s always someone to lend a helping hand and everyone is willing and open to learning from each other. Melanie values self-growth, commitment to her patients’ health, and loyalty to BDC’s overall mission – treating patients like family. In her free time, Melanie loves to travel, exercise, and go to the beach. She feels inspired by the book Untamed by Glennon Doyle, which sends the message of working through your difficulties, pushing yourself, because you can accomplish more than what you think your capable of.
