As a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH), Cheryl Van Teyens aims to educate as well as care for her patients. Her goal for the patients is to help them understand how their dental health coincides with their overall health, and how they may attain and maintain it through good dental education. Cheryl sees this as her mission statement for Dr. Messer’s practice.
Cheryl has worked with Dr. Messer since 2014. A graduate of Bergen County Community College, Cheryl explains that she became a Hygienist because she wanted a career through which she could help people be healthier. On a personal level, Cheryl feels that the best part of her job is getting to know her patients and their families.
Away from the office, Cheryl enjoys spending time outdoors camping, hiking, biking, and skiing with her family.
