Ms. Ginny Joined our team in June of 2021. She received her Associates Degree in Health, as a Registered Dental Hygienist from the university of Rhode Island and her BS and certified health specialist degree from Plymouth State University.

Ms. Ginny is not a new colleague of Dr Schrupp, they actually worked alongside each other at the dental resource center at LRGH prior to him opening his private practice. Ms. Ginny is very well known to the preschool/elementary schools in the area as the tooth fairy, where she visited classrooms and provided oral hygiene instruction. She was a health service coordinator for Belknap and Merrimack counties head start programs and also set up oral care programs for numerous nursing homes in the area. The importance of oral care during all phases of life has been a driving force in her 30+ years as a dental hygienist. She enjoys gardening, yoga, choral singing, playing the flute and piccolo, and loves spending time with her children and grandchildren.
