Brigiett Ritchie, BSDH, RDH, OMT

Dental Hygienist

Brigiett Ritchie, BSDH has been helping people put their best smile forward as a dental hygienist for 13 years. Brigiett is a graduate of Fresno City College Dental Hygiene program, where she received her initial training as a dental hygienist. Brigiett is also a 2022 graduate of Foothill College where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene (BSDH). Brigiett is passionate about helping people and being a lifelong learner. Brigiett understands the latest research and approaches to quality dental care to support the people she serves in a comfortable, safe and inclusive environment where the person feels cared for and lovingly educated in their oral hygiene and oral health care. Brigiett’s approach is centered around whole-body care where the mouth is understood to be the window of lifelong health for the whole body. Brigiett is also a Myofunctional Therapist and an Airway Hygienist. Myofunctional therapy is a physical therapy for the head, neck and oral pharyngeal muscles. This therapy is an evidence-based intervention to help people who live with sleep apnea, temporomandibular joint disorder, correction of tongue thrusting and swallowing which contribute to bite issues and misaligned teeth. The main goal of Myofunctional Therapy is to correct the breathing posture of individuals so that proper nasal breathing with lips sealed and tongue resting on the palate is accomplished.

When Brigiett is not learning and applying the latest research to ensure quality of care for her patients you can find her planning travel opportunities with her husband, cooking, dancing and urban hiking. Brigiett is a proud mother to three wonderful children, two dogs and one cat.
