Amber Young, BS, RDH

Dental Hygienist

After receiving my Dental Hygiene license in 2004, I went to work in a private practice office in Tucson, AZ. I worked with two dentists and a second hygienists who taught me everything I needed to know about dentistry. During my 12 years at this office, I also worked one day a week, for four years, as a chairside assistant to learn the restorative side of dentistry. In January of 2016, I moved to Utah where I worked in the front office of a dental practice for three months while waiting for my Utah license to come through. There I learned the insurance, financial, treatment planning and scheduling side of dentistry. After receiving my Utah license, I went back to work as a hygienist for three years at a corporate office. In March 2019 I came to Roseman University. Here at Roseman I get to put my skills to use preparing student dentists to competently deliver quality care to their patients, now and in the future. I love being here at Roseman, being able to work with top notch faculty and staff members to achieve Roseman’s vision of high quality, innovative education.
