Abby Nuestro

Dental Hygienist

Abby is your fun and friendly hygienist that was born in Bartlett, IL and was raised in Las Vegas, NV. She graduated from Palo Verde High School and although she is fairly short, she proudly played volleyball for the Panthers! After high school, she attended College of Southern Nevada and Nevada State to complete her general education courses.

After Abby moved to Salt Lake City in 2013, she decided it was the perfect time to achieve her goal of becoming a dental hygienist. She graduated from Salt Lake Community College with Honors in 2017. During her time there, she developed a love for Dental Anatomy and Oral Pathology. She was a member of Americorps serving over 750 hours of community service. She truly enjoyed educating and donating services at local health care fairs.

When she’s not at the office perfecting smiles, this foodie loves to read and watch the Harry Potter series, nap, cheer on the SF Giants and New England Patriots, and hang out with her girlfriends.

While she likes just about every aspect of her job, her favorite part is interacting with her patients. Abby wishes to change the old stereotype of the dentist’s office being scary and uncomfortable by making it more of an enjoyable experience! Her goal is to always provide a comfortable and fun environment in the dental office!
