Hi, I am Rebecca Million. I was born in Lousiana, MO as the youngest of four. I currently reside in Mexico, MO with my family of four. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful little girls. We enjoy hunting, camping, exploring the outdoors and really anything simple and fun! I received my bachelor of science degree majoring in Parks, Recreation and Land management at the University of Missouri -Columbia. Apparently that was my fun degree!      I found my true career path and later graduated from State Fair Community college with my associates in Dental Hygiene. I look forward to serving and getting to know you here at Gentle Healthy Smiles.
