My name is Stephanie Washburn. I have enjoyed my career as a dental hygienist, realizing at an early age that there was no other place for me other than the dental office.
I worked as a nursing aid before attending dental assisting school in the early eighties and started my career shortly after. In 1993 I graduated from Forest Park Dental Hygiene School in St. Louis. I was blessed to work for several very good dental offices and doctors where I learned the importance of excellent dental treatment. That is why I feel so fortunate to be working for Dr. Burpo. He reflects everything I feel is important in treating a person. (I also spent some time working in a periodontal office). I understand that every person is an individual and that each person deserves individual care. I also enjoy getting to know each patient that I see on a personal level... to build trust in one another. As a hygienist I know the importance that each person plays in helping to take care of their own mouth and I become part of that team in working to find what best works for them. My goal for each one of you is your health and that you keep your teeth for a lifetime.
My most important accomplishment is my family; my husband and two beautiful daughters. And now a handsome two year old grandson that is the light of my life. We enjoy spending time at the lake, boating and relaxing, when we are not doing that we are in Lawrence Kansas visiting our little Jayhawks. I look forward to serving you all.
