Complete Cleaning Services Corp
After 14 years as a dental assistant in general and specialized dentistry, Christina Tablan saw a need for better cleaning practices in dental offices and started this company. She recognized that better sanitation was needed in a critical environment such as a dental office. Then she discovered that other businesses had similar sanitation issues in their buildings and expanded the scope of her business to meet the needs of those new clients. As one of five children of a single mother, Ms. Tablan plans to not only grow a successful business, but to help create opportunities for local people that are new to the country, struggling for a better future or are a single parent. She even aims to provide her employees who are single parents with daycare at her office so they can go do their cleaning job, knowing their children are taken care of.
