After completing her residency Dr. Findlay moved back to Washington where she practiced dentistry for several years before deciding to move to Utah.
One of Dr. Findlay’s favorite parts of being a dentist are the relationships that she is able to have with her patients and the impact that relationship can have on a patient’s oral and overall health. She understands that the dental office can be a very scary and intimidating place and it is her goal to make her patients feel as comfortable as possible.
Continuing to learn and stay up to date with the latest dental techniques and technology is also very important to Dr. Findlay as she wants to be able to provide the best care to her patients. Dr. Findlay is active in continuing education courses and has even gained extensive training in the use of Botox to help treat oral and facial pain.
