Razia Uddin, RDH Razia

Hello and thank you for choosing us for your dental care! My name is Razia, I am a proud member of the Dental Hygiene Team here at Park 56 Dental. I am dedicated to making every moment for you in our practice as comfortable as possible. The most enjoyable aspect of my profession is getting to know my patients as I enjoy taking the time to understand my patient’s needs and how they are feeling at every visit. I look forward to building a relationship with all my clients. That is why I like being a healthcare partner to all my patients regarding their oral health and how I would recommend caring for them. I encourage each patient to ask any questions or discuss any concerns so that I can make them feel good about their choices. My approach to care is gentle, calming and friendly. Outside of work I enjoy taking long walks, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
