Debby Knaur. Featured dental hygienist Virginia BeachHello, my name is Debby and I have been working with Dr. HorwitHorwitz & Dorfman Art of Dentistry for over 10 years.  I am one of six amazing dental hygienists who have the pleasure of working with this dental team.  While it was not a childhood dream of mine to work in the dental field, I am most certainly blessed to have made it my career choice.  I have been in dentistry for over 20 years.  I started out as a dental assistant and after two years, my employer encouraged me to further my dental career.  I took his advice and went back to school and eventually applied to the dental hygiene program at ODU.  I graduated in 1991 with my bachelors of science in dental hygiene.

I have worked in a few wonderful dental practices over the years however this practice truly has my heart.   The entire clinical as well as the administrative staff realize that without happy, satisfied patients, we would just be another dental office.  That is why we go above and beyond in everything we do.

Although educating and helping my patients maintain their healthy smiles is a big part of my job it is so much more than that.  My goal is to treat my patients like I would like to be treated and to have complete confidence in their dental team.

I truly look forward to seeing my patients on a daily basis and hearing what is new in their lives.  It is such a wonderful feeling to be able to ask my patients about their families and they in turn ask about mine.  And it is SUCH a compliment when those patients refer the rest of their family or friends to our practice because their experience was so positive.

Since it is a new year, remember to visit our office and let us help you take the steps in gaining and maintaining the healthy smile you deserve.  You will be glad you did!
