Margarita Gutierrez, or “Maggie” as her patients and friends call her, graduated from Malcolm X College as a Registered Dental Hygienist. What Maggie loves most about being a hygienist is being trusted by her patients and having the opportunity to teach them how to achieve a healthy oral cavity. She takes pride in her patients following her tips and seeing them progress every time they sit in her chair. Prior to becoming a hygienist, Maggie worked at the UIC College of Dentistry at the Advanced Prosthodontics Clinic as a surgical dental assistant. In her free time, Maggie loves shopping and planning trips with her family and significant other.
