Plus, Trudy shares a unique relationship with another member of our team, so keep reading to discover her unique twist.
Chasing Her Passion
After completing a year at ISU, Trudy became a dental assistant at another practice. There she worked with a dental hygienist and developed a deeper interest in dentistry. She decided to pursue a career in dental hygiene at Indiana University School of Dentistry’s Dental Hygiene program. In her own words:
“That is where my passion started. I love my profession! Because I have worked in all areas of the dental office I strive to be TEAM oriented. I’ve been blessed to work with exceptional dentists who have enabled me ‘to be the best I can be.”
“Over the years, I have developed relationships with my patients and have come to view my profession as a service and a ministry. I treat my patients how I would like to be treated – with respect and love, giving each the detail and attention they deserve.”
Trudy is an active member of St. Benedict Parish, serving as catechist in the Religious Education program for children for over 40 years and as a catechist in the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults for over 30 years. She has been very active in other community endeavors, including serving as Chairperson of Children’s Dental Health Month. Trudy and her husband, Tony, have been married 42 years. They have 3 children and 2 grandchildren.
And, are you ready for the “twist?” Trudy’s son, Todd, is Dr. Todd Butwin, our new associate at Friendly Family Dentistry! We are so pleased to have both as team members! Contact our office to schedule an examination. We look forward to seeing you!
