Megan has been a member of the CDP team since January of 2016. She grew up in Goddard, Kansas and graduated from Barton County College with an Associate of Science degree in 2012, and then graduated as Class President from Manhattan Area Technical College with an Associate of Science in Dental Hygiene in 2014. She received her Extended Care Permit II in 2015 while working in a public health clinic in Salina for 2 years, mostly doing outreach dental work for school-aged children in classroom type settings. She has known that she wanted to work in a pediatric dental office since her first day of Dental Hygiene school. Her favorite thing about working with kids is how energetic they are. “I love listening to children tell stories about what is important to them or what they enjoy doing in their free time— they have such a different perspective on the world than adults do. They have as much to teach me as I have to teach them!” In her spare time, she likes reading, watching movies, hiking, traveling and spending time outside with her boyfriend and two children—identical twins, Joel and Judah.
