Bio Coming Soon!

Nancy Heath C.

Hello, my name is Nancy Heath-Coleman; I've been a hygienist in Vero beach for the past 25 years, but have had the great pleasure of being a "Root Dental" hygienist for the past 11 years. If you could understand the rigorous process that Dr. Root goes through in choosing his staff, then you will understand why each of us are so proud to serve with him. Our practice continually tries to provide the best customer service and quality "every patient, every day"; that has always been the cornerstone of our practice.

Besides being a hygienist for half of my life, I am a proud mother of 3 of the best kids ever (not biased- of course) :) My last is going off to college in the fall and I am trying to find a "new hat" to wear; I found it! Volunteer work! I'm excited be getting my fingers dirty learning how to garden in a community garden that serves the hungry and I'm dusting off my crocheting skills by making shawls for cancer patients. It feels great to give back - try it sometime if you can.

Paying it forward makes a body feel good!
