Read our fun Q&A with Meghann to learn more about her and what high school experience made her want to pursue a career in dentistry!
What’s your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of working in the dental field is to work with Cerec and creating new smiles for patients. Learning new ways to create natural and beautiful smiles for patients is rewarding and a challenge.
What has been your most memorable moment as a dental assistant?
I have several memorable moments, all having to do with giving a patient the confidence back that they deserve by giving them the beautiful smile they have always dreamed of.
What made you want to become a dental assistant?
I had braces on when I was in high school and into college and my orthodontist’s team was such a fun and inspiring group. I think being older and going through the orthodontic treatment when I was starting to think about a career path in life made an impact on me.
