Cindy may be in dental hygiene but her passion for the health field runs deep and goes far beyond dental hygiene. To Cindy, her job is to listen to our patients, care deeply, serve and educate them with all of her integrity. She has been practicing dental hygiene for 29 years. She has worked for a prosthodontist for 16 years in Great Neck and have worked with several periodontists as well.
Cindy has been working with Dr. Matlach for over 10 years, “He has given me the opportunity to learn CPR, Teeth Whitening, Orthodontics and Oral Conscious Sedation. Most importantly, he has given me the time and support I need to make a difference in our patients' lives. Whereas many offices have a 30 minute in-and-out "cleaning," our standard is a full hour which allows me to be thorough and help patients relax. My favorite patient is the apprehensive, frightened patient. I love being able to relax them and reassure them that they are in best hands possible.” She often does such things as placing lavender at her patients' temples to help relax them, and to teach patients how to continue to improve their hygiene skills at home. She enjoys helping make a difference in their lives.
Her interest and passion for the health field has only grown over the past few years. She has an extensive and growing knowledge of the health sciences. As a hobby, she loves to study all the fascinating fields, in particular, holistic health and herbology.
On the personal side, Cindy loves working with children and has been doing so since high school. She is a fitness instructor, martial arts instructor, and a personal trainer in a few local gyms. She has also been teaching martial arts for 13 years at a local Tae Kwon Do school.
“God gave me one wonderful son who is an awesome athlete and is a college graduate as of May 2014”. Cindy lives in a wonderful home with her husband in Huntington, which is surrounded by nature to “feed my soul”. She loves to ski, run, bicycle, and hike and am currently learning to play tennis.
