Irene Hy

Registered Dental Hygienist
Irene attained her dental hygiene skills and education through Cerritos College; and, during her time there, she was recognized with the Golden Scaler Award--a testament of her achievements, remarkable skills, talents, and the "golden touch". After achieving her A.A. in Cerritos College, she pursued a bachelor's degree at West Los Angeles College to further her education in dental hygiene and community outreach. Helping others has always been a passion of hers, so you will often find her engaged in outdoor and social activities. On her days off, Irene enjoys picnics, tennis, going to the beach, biking, trying new foods, and traveling. She hopes to use her time and knowledge to benefit the community and the people around her.
