Michele, a Pennsylvania native, has been calling Charleston home since 2003. She earned her dental hygiene degree in 1998 and practiced in
Bethlehem, PA, Traverse City, MI, and Rochester, NY prior to moving to Charleston. Charleston’s sunny, friendly environment replaced the stress of the harsh winters of the north, which drove Michele toward her new happy life in the Lowcountry. She is a member of Seacoast Church in Mt. Pleasant where she met her husband. On 07-07-07, Michele married Perry Litchfield, a Charleston native. She and Perry live in West Ashley with their adorable retired (couch potato) greyhounds.

Dental hygiene is a fun and challenging career for Michele. She is passionate about taking care of every patient as if they are a member of her own family and looks forward to meeting you!
