Meet Our Team
Peggy Chesser, BS, RDH
Peggy Chesser graduated from Ohio State University. After graduation, she started her career performing expanded functions procedures in a General Practice Residency at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. Around this same time Peggy was married to a USAF pilot and thus had the privilege of practicing hygiene in many different parts of the country and even parts of Europe. Peggy eventually settled in Southern Nevada and she has been practicing hygiene here for the last twenty-three years. She worked for a large periodontal group here in Nevada, where she was formally trained to perform a non-surgical periodontal therapy with the use of a Periodontal Scope. Immediately recognizing the health benefits of this new therapy, Peggy dedicated herself to mastering the technology so she can provide this life-changing therapy for her patients in Las Vegas, and now here at Pahrump Family Dental.
Hazel Henry, RDH
Hazel, originally from Ireland, moved to the states when she was very young. She started her career in dentistry as a Dental Assistant and enjoyed what she did for some time, but her desire to help people gave her the drive to further her education. Hazel attended Harcum College in Bryn Mawr, PA and graduated with an AAS in Dental Hygiene. She has since become a member of the American Dental Hygiene Association and has practiced in Philadelphia and Chicago before settling in Southern Nevada. In June of 2016 Hazel joined the team here at Pahrump Family Dental, where her passion for her profession have been clearly reflected in the care she provides for her patients. She is a truly dedicated Dental Hygienist. Hazel loves her work and is pleased to have teamed up with a practice that shares her same desires and vision for patient care.
