Tara Says: "I am so proud to be part of the RDA team. We are like a family, and we all want to exceed our patients’ expectations. My goal is to make your experience in our office so enjoyable you’d tell a friend and invite them to be a patient as well. Rivertown Dental Associates has felt like home to me from the moment I first walked in. It is amazing to be part of a team with such strong core values. Dr. Hahn and the entire team are dedicated to giving our patients the very best. I absolutely love being a dental hygienist. I am excited about building life-long relationships with patients and my team members."
