Joyce Brown-Benedickt

I am enjoying dental hygiene as a second career. I was employed by the University of Wyoming Bookstore in retail management prior to returning to school for a degree in dental hygiene. I had been a dental assistant in the late 70’s and became interested in oral health care. When the opportunity was presented, I returned to school.

I worked for Dr. Cotant as a temporary dental assistant in 2006-2007, while attending hygiene school. I graduated from Sheridan College in 2007 and started my career as a dental hygienist.

I have 3 married daughters and I have 6 grandchildren who I do not get to see often enough, but when I retire they will be my main focus. I enjoy a western lifestyle, with riding horses and many closely related outdoor activities. I also enjoy woodworking and leather creations when the Wyoming weather keeps me inside.

Each day is a new learning experience and my skills continue to advance. I am fortunate to be able to see patients from 1 year of age and beyond, giving me the opportunity to become a more knowledgeable health care provider.
