Michelle received her Bachelor of Science degree from Penn State University in 1989 and her Dental Hygiene Associate of Science Degree from Montgomery County Community College in 1999 (Summa cum Laude). Her strong desire to work directly with patients and use her significant health education experience led her to the dental hygiene field. Michelle had been proudly working with Dr. Paster since he purchased the practice in 2012. Michelle also holds a license in local anesthesia and is a licensed Public Health Dental Hygiene Practitioner. Her happy place is at the beach and spending time traveling with her husband, Pete. Michelle is a VERY proud Penn State alumni and a big fan of PSU football.
