Heather Hobbs

Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been working in the dental field since 2003 beginning my career as a dental assistant and working my way towards my degree in dental hygiene in 2013. I’m passionate about helping our patients continually improve their oral health while providing a comfortable, personal and enjoyable experience. My favorite part about working at Valley Dental Esthetics is our amazing team and our desire to provide exceptional patient care. I recently received my laser certification so that we can now offer state of the art laser bacterial reduction in our practice. I was born and raised in Walnut Creek and moved to Lodi in 2014. I spend my free time with my husband and son enjoying the outdoors. We love hiking, fishing, camping and boating.

I absolutely love being a Dental Hygienist, getting to know my patients while being able to educate them on ways to achieve optimal oral health. One thing I love about the dental field is it's always advancing and I love being able to advance and learn with the field.
