Dental Hygienist

McKenzie was born and raised in Price, Utah. She has been passionate about dentistry from the time she was a little girl. When she was 10 years old she asked her dentist if she could work for him.

She graduated from Utah Valley University’s Dental Hygiene program in 2007.

Dental Hygienist

Kumari comes from a very strong dental background that has influenced some of her earliest memories. Her dad, a dentist in Washington, and mom, a nurse who taught pathophysiology to dental hygiene students, instilled in her a love for dentistry at a very young age along with 3 other siblings who have also become hygienists. She began working and assisting in her dad’s practice and then worked 10+ years as a dental assistant before graduating in the inaugural class of Utah College of Dental Hygiene in 2007. Since then, she’s loved caring for members of the Utah community as a Registered Dental Hygienist and serves on the UCDH Program Advisory Committee. A highlight of her career has been accompanying the University of Washington on a dental/medical brigade mission to Panama in 2011. Kumari was adopted from India and raised in Seattle by her amazing parents who adopted 5 other children as well as having 6 of their own. Kumari’s favorite activity is spending a long day at the beach, soaking up the sun outdoors, with her husband and 3 boys.
