Mrs. Diana Milton

Registered Dental Hygienist

I'm a New York City native, and I relocated to Syracuse, NY to attend Maria Regina College; I received an Associates Degree in Business Administration.  I later enrolled at Onondaga Community College where I received my degree in Dental Hygiene.

I have practiced dental hygiene in the Syracuse area for over 24 years. I speak fluent Spanish, and I have found that being bilingual has been such a blessing! I love working with people as well as being a community liason between the Spanish-speaking and non-Spanish speaking communities. 

In my spare time I enjoy hiking in the Adirondacks, going to plays and concerts, volunteering at schools, working with the elderly, and spending time with friends and family.
I realized early in my life that education was the key to realizing my goals and dreams. Because of this I love speaking to others, especially children, to motivate them to pursue their dreams.

I have been with Harris Cosmetic and Modern Dental for over a year and I absolutely love my patients!  I care deeply for my patients and enjoy being a critical member of my patients healthcare team.
