39 years devoted to dental hygiene and five years as a dental assistant qualifies Carol as a definite dental professional, who has retired. While we will miss seeing her on a daily basis, the “Good-bye” isn’t forever since Carol will be filling in for us sometimes.
Carol has been working with Dr. Martin since 1992.When Carol isn’t having fun with family and friends, she and husband Bob enjoy the company of their family pet, Bailey, a Bichon Frise. To relax, Carol spends time with a good book or her gardening. Proof of her green thumb is evident in Carol’s flowers and vegetables. Carol also appreciates the fresh mountain air as well as the beauty of the seashore. Above those activities however, Carol most enjoys time spent with her grandchildren.
