Cassie Sailors
Dental Hygienist

I am a recent graduate of the Catawba Valley Community College Dental Hygiene program in Hickory, NC. Going to the dentist as a child was always something I looked forward too.

I knew at a young age that I wanted to be in the dental field, so I could give someone the same opportunity and make an impact in patients’ lives, no matter how small it may seem.

In my spare time, I love hanging out with my two nieces, Janalyn and Jessa, and my dogs, Echo and Haylo. My family is super important to me!
