Beth – RDH and Periodontal Therapist

After graduating from High School I worked for a dentist as an assistant and then attended the dental hygiene program at Howard College in Big Spring, TX. and received my Associates Degree in Applied Science. I spent the first 5 ½ years of my career at another office before I found Dr. Rutherford’s Office. I have worked for Dr. Rutherford since December 1, 1999. This environment has been encouraging of professional and personal growth. We research and attend many hours of continuing education courses to keep our office current with the most up to date equipment and techniques. I am married and have 5 children. As a family, we enjoy going to the lake for fishing and water recreation and we are involved in many sports, especially football, soccer and swimming, and baseball.
