DeiDre is an Arkansas native and grew up around Russellville. After attending the Honors College at Arkansas Tech University and receiving a history/political science degree in 2009, she moved to Little Rock and was accepted into the UAMS dental hygiene program. She graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene and has been helping create healthier smiles ever since! DeiDre wanted to be a dental hygienist because she enjoys getting to know people and wants them to be comfortable coming to the dental office. She loves it when someone tells her they have enjoyed their dental cleaning! DeiDre has been married to her wonderful husband, Ryan, since 2010, and they have a sweet Papillon fur baby named Gizmo. DeiDre enjoys reading, baking, photography, and riding her road bicycle.
