Jocelyn Pineda, Dental Hygenist

Jocelyn Pineda, Dental Hygenist

I graduated from Houston Community College with an Associate in Science in 2013.  I have truly enjoyed being a hygienist and being able to educate and provide quality service to patients.  I love being able to comfort patients’ fears by being compassionate and gentle. Having the latest technology and modern equipment at Dr. Suki’s office, allows me to practice my profession with comfort and ease. I enjoy getting to know all my patients and building a trusting relationship for years to come. In my free time, I enjoy doing crafts, scrapbooking, taking pictures, listening to music, meeting new people and spending time with my family and friends.
