Why I became a dental assistant?

I really like working with people & my father suggested it to me after leaving his dentist.  I’m good with fast paced, multitasking and detail-oriented tasks.  My artistic talents help me with lab work, photography, & multiple other things needed to provide high quality for patients.

What do I enjoy about assisting?

I really like meeting & getting to know all the patients here and talking to them.  I love the hands-on aspects to my job & seeing the beautiful results after a patient’s finished case.  It feels good to be able to help people with a nonsurgical approach to their TMD pain.  I also really love doing multiple types of surgeries.

Why I came to work for Dr. Clancy?

Working here I’ve learned so much about TMD & how we can help these people feel better.  I’ve learned all about implants, grafts & multiple surgical procedures.  I love learning & we do a lot of training here at Cosmetic & Esthetic Dentistry, which is a big reason I came to work here full time.  I also really love all the girls I get to work with every day.
