Registered Dental Assistant
The best thing about being a dental assistant is helping ease patients’ fears and anxieties about coming to the dental office. It’s a great feeling when a patient initially comes in scared or even crying and, now that we’ve shown them that we offer painless care, they arrive smiling and laughing! That’s a lot of what makes this office great: everyone is kind, caring, and always willing to help out, anyway they can!
