My name is Kelly Rangel and I live in Oak Forest with my husband and two little boys. My boys Roberto (6) and Cooper (3) keep me on my toes. They love adventure and are constantly reminding me to live in the moment and not take life too seriously. My husband and I own our own business which keeps us very busy. We are about to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and love adventure as well. In high school I started working in a dental office and I knew this was the career for me. I decided to pursue dental hygiene because I knew in time I wanted to become a mother. Dental hygiene allows me to have a career I love and still be able to be with my babies. I graduated in 2007 from PSC with an Associates in Applied Sciences. My favorite aspect of hygiene is developing an ongoing relationship with patients. I truly care for each patient and try to bring the most current information and product recommendations to each visit. My free time consists of play dates, spending time with family and friends, cooking and working out.
