Nicole Orchard – Hygienist
I was born and raised in Idaho Falls. I graduated from Bonneville High School in 2014 and knew that dental hygiene is what I wanted to do! I attended Carrington College in Boise to obtain my dental hygiene license, and graduated in 2016. After graduating, I moved back to Idaho Falls and married my high school sweetheart. We just had our first baby and are so in love with her! In our free time, we love doing just about anything outdoors and spending time with family. I’ve been working at Tooth Time for three years and have enjoyed working in the pediatric field. I love helping the kids learn the importance of oral hygiene and I look forward to many more years of doing what I love!
