I've been a dental assistant for 19 years. My favorite part about being an assistant is building relationships and rapport with patients. This allows me to better educate our patients of their oral health needs and change the kind of experience they have at "the dentist." When I am not working with our wonderful staff and patients I'm with my little family, having big and small adventures together. I'm also very crafty and love all kinds of creative outlets, especially redoing old furniture.
