Watching someone’s smile transformation is the best part of my job. I love the look on a patients face when they sit up in the chair and see their new smile whether that be after cosmetic dentistry or finishing up Invisalign treatment. I feel really lucky to be part of that experience. Dr Perkins and I love when we can give a person confidence about their smile.
I have been a patient of South West Dental Care since I was four years old! No one really thinks about working with their dentist, but that’s exactly what I did. My job as a Hygiene Coordinator is exciting. Every day is different, and it makes our days interesting and fun.
I love meeting new patients and learning about their lives every day. The best part of my job as receptionist is making a difference in a patient’s oral care. It’s great when we can brighten someone’s day. Those little moments make our jobs really rewarding.
Smiling is contagious. A healthy smile, means a healthier you. I love watching a patient's smile transformation, whether it's from teeth whitening or cosmetic dentistry. As a dental hygienist, watching their face light up is the best feeling in the world.
Your smile is one of the first and most important things people notice about you. I enjoy being able to talk to patients and educate them about their teeth. My job is to keep our patients smiles healthy and cavity free for many years to come.
I have been in the dental field for over 10 years. My position in the office is busy but a rewarding one. I’m in charge of making sure all instruments are sterilized and ready for patient care. I keep the daily flow of the office going by ensuring ops are turned over and ready for patient care. I love that my job keeps me active and allows me to still interact with patients on a daily basis.
The best part about my job as an oral health specialist is the ability to individualize every appointment and educate each client in a way that is unique to them. When a client expresses motivation towards improving their oral health, it's such a rewarding feeling to know that I've been able to play a role in that behaviour change; by providing tips and tricks that are catered to each of their needs.
