Erin Malloy, RDH

Erin Malloy, RDH grew up in West Warwick and graduated from West Warwick High School. Not knowing what she wanted to do with the rest of her life, she began taking courses at CCRI and graduated in spite of herself with an Associate in Arts Degree, to which her parents promptly said “keep going” Erin went on to earn an Associate in Applied Science: Dental Hygiene and began practicing dental hygiene. Erin feels that she has had the good fortune of spending her entire career in the practice of Dr Michael M. Gooding since graduating in 1998. When she began 16 years ago, most of the staff had worked there for over a decade each, she took that to be a good sign. She loves seeing her fellow co-workers and says that she learns something new from each of them everyday.

Dr Gooding and the staff consistently attend continuing education classes as well as belonging to study clubs in their respective fields. He expects excellence from not only himself but equally from each of his staff. She feels lucky working alongside everyone here.

When she ‘s not trying to convince people the benefits of brushing and flossing, she gets to drive her three girls all over the state. She loves hanging out with them and listening to music ….. loud!!!
