Portrait of Barry

Barry was a dental hygienist since the year 2000 and worked at Valleywide Dental in Palmdale, California, USA. He grew up in West Los Angeles, and for his degree in dental hygiene, he participated in studies at Santa Monica College but graduated from West Los Angeles College. He maintained that West LA was a great program, “the best around,” and at one point, it was under discussion to install a four-year specialized-level program on campus.

Barry was wonderful, enjoyed being around people and was very funny. He loved what he did because it directly helped people. Many modern techniques preserved people’s teeth to a degree never possible before so it enthralled him to see people improve their health by participating in their own dental hygiene and then coming in regularly foe a cleaning.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?
