I have been practicing hygiene for over 30 years. I attended Lakeland College in Mattoon IL, and trained at Scott Air Force Base as a hygienist. In 1988 I moved to Toms River with my family and started working for Dr. Rutz in 2004. In addition to keeping up on the latestdental courses, I also visit many schools during dental heath month to help educate children about the necessity of good oral hygiene. I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children, going to the beach, and volunteering in the community.



I graduated from the University of Louisville with a dental hygiene degree. Because I am from the Pittsburgh area, Louisville was one of the closest hygiene programs. I have worked in all phases of dentistry, including office manager for a practice in Manasquan which is how I met Dr. Rutz. I have been with Dr. Rutz for almost 10 years and really enjoy working with our great doctors, staff and patients. When I am not working, I enjoy gardening, motorcycling with my husband, and cooking for my friends and family.



I have been practicing dental hygiene for 12 years. I graduated from Bergen Community College’s Hygiene program in 2000. My family moved to “the shore” in 2006. I love spending time with my husband & children; also volunteering and helping people smile. Gentle Dental Care is a great place to work because the staff and patients are friendly. Dr. Rutz provides us with the classes we need to keep up to speed. It’s important to me that patients are comfortable with me and with their dental experience.


I graduated from Middlesex County College in 1987 as a Registered Dental Hygienist. I have been happily working with Dr.Rutz  for the past 20 years. I live in Toms River with my husband Eric and two daughters Jessica and Amanda.
