Get to Know MDP: 5 Questions with Torrie Troensegaard
Torrie, a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH), earned her Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene at Mount Ida College. In her role as a Registered Dental Hygienist, Torrie has the privilege of developing close relationships with each patient who visits Martins Dental Partners and makes patients feel comfortable and relaxed with her friendly and outgoing personality. “When I was young, I was always afraid of the dentist and of getting my teeth cleaned. Being able to relate to patients who share that fear was one of the primary reasons I became a Dental Hygienist. I strive to provide my patients with a calming and stress-free experience.” says Torrie.
In her spare time, Torrie enjoys spending time with her family including her grandmother who lives on the South Shore. She also loves dogs, especially her two Siberian Huskies Tasha and Denali, watching The Bachelor and listening to Fleetwood Mac.
