“Being a dental assistant is a rewarding career. There is so much joy in caring for patients and helping them to smile again and gain confidence. I love helping others and being able to help in such a positive way by enhancing the quality of their life and being able to educate patients and friends and family. The variety of work we get to do is pretty fun. There are no two days alike. Dentistry is something that is always changing and growing and it’s gratifying to see our team and myself constantly learning in order to give our patients the best care and dental experience possible! I love being a part of Washington Smiles and our bubbly personalities help everyone to feel comfortable. We are not just a team, we are family!!”
