Mansfield, GA, February 28, 2008 --( Linda O. Hammond, a retired dental hygienist for Dr. Kenneth C. West of Blairsville, GA, has been named Cambridge Who's Who Professional of the Year for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in all aspects of dental hygiene.

Hammond worked in the dental hygiene field for 28 years before retiring. She excelled in administering x-rays and preventative maintenance treatments and, most importantly, educating patients. She attributes her success and longevity in this industry to the fact that she loved her work. Dr. Kenneth C. West’s practice provides general dental services as well as cosmetic dentistry.

Hammond received her associate of arts degree in dental hygiene from Clayton State University. Hammond was first exposed to dentistry while serving in the Women’s Army Corp from 1965 to 1968.

Her hobbies are gardening, which she loves with a passion, and crocheting. Her grandsons are the loves of her life… to them, she is Hootinanny. Her husband Johnny is retired.
