Hello! I’m Anna Rushing, the hygiene coordinator at Downtown Dental Excellence. My responsibilities include coordinating and scheduling all hygiene appointments, and helping keep patients committed to their oral health. This position is a great fit for me because I enjoy meeting new people and building patient relationships. I’m also the sleep apnea coordinator where I use state of the art software to craft custom oral appliances to help patients breathe better when they sleep. Providing these appliances is so rewarding to me when I see the life changing effect it has on our patients.
I started in the dental field in 2009 as a Dental Assistant. I met my husband (Dr. Rushing) also in 2009 when he came to the University of Alabama (Tuscaloosa). We married in 2012 and moved to Birmingham. Shortly after, in 2013, I graduated from the Alabama Dental Hygiene Program.
I was born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and am passionate about sports, playing traveling softball for over 10 years. I love watching Alabama football, riding bikes, and reading in between.
