Lead Dental Assistant

Hometown: West Palm Beach, Florida

The first job I ever had: Working the concession stand at a movie theater

Why did you decide on a Dental Field? I was home between semesters of college and needed a job. We had a family friend who was a dentist and he hired me to clean rooms and instrument sterilization. One day his assistant was out and I had to jump in. He saw I had a knack for it and I instantly fell in love with dentistry. I acquired my certification and license and the rest is history. That was 35 years ago and I love it even more now than I did then.
