My name is Bobbie Messick and I am a register dental hygienist. I am originally from Montana. I moved to Tucson Arizona in 2006 to go to school for dental hygiene. I had wanted to be a dental hygienist since I was 13 years old. My neighbor and family friend was a dentist growing up. I would go to his office and volunteer and learn whenever I could. I fell in love with the atmosphere and the patient care in dentistry. I have a passion for what I do, and always try to make my patients calm and comfortable while they are in my chair. I have two amazing little girls that keep me very busy with dance, gymnastics, and sports. I enjoy traveling, running, being outdoors, and snowboarding.
Hello, my name is Sara Bingham and I am a Dental Hygienist here at Bushman Dental Care. I graduated from Carrington College with my Associates of Science in Dental Hygiene in March of 2015. Helping people achieve their goals for their oral health is a passion of mine and I'm very grateful to be apart of a career that can do just that. When I'm not helping others at work, I'm off playing with my husband Palmer and our four children, Kody, Kalli, Beckett, and Luke. We are a sports family, so I enjoy coaching my children in soccer, baseball, and softball. I also love being an active member of the community by helping run the local Little League and teaching the youth at my church.
