Ms. Shirlene Pierre, Hygienist
Shirlene joined the Impressions Dental team in December 2003. She began her professional journey as a dental assistant and gained a strong, practical foundation under the direction of Dr. Warren. Her desire to further develop her career resulted in her leaving the practice in August 2006 to attend Miami Dade College and obtain an AS Degree in Dental Hygiene.
Throughout the duration of Shirlene’s academic pursuit, she maintained close contact with Impressions Dental and was always welcomed to work with the team during the Summer and Christmas holidays. It was therefore no surprise that after registering as a Dental Hygenist in 2009 that Shirlene would choose to return to the practice on a permanent basis.
Shirlene attributes the success of Impressions Dental to the commitment of the team to create a motivating and caring environment in which to provide quality service to their valued patients. The team has therefore built lifelong relationships not only with each other but with patients who are seen not only in a professional capacity but are also treated as extended family members.
Shirlene is currently licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, as well as the state of Florida.
