Horizon Health Care is pleased to welcome Rachel Lovejoy, RDH, as a new dental hygienist at Martin Dental Clinic. Lovejoy joins provider Thomas Schmanski, DDS, to provide dental care to the Martin community.
Originally from Carter, South Dakota, Lovejoy received her associate’s degree from the dental hygiene program at Sheridan College. In 2021, she graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from the University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyoming.
“I wanted to become a dental hygienist because I want to help everyone feel confident in showing off their smiles,” said Rachel Lovejoy, RDH. “I want to ensure that my patients are comfortable and at ease throughout their dental appointments so they will continue to seek dental care to improve their oral health and overall health.”
Lovejoy enjoys working on her parents’ ranch and showing cattle in her free time. She is currently available for appointments at Martin Dental Clinic Tuesday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
“I’m looking forward to serving the Martin area,” said Lovejoy.
