Treatment Plan Coordinator
I have been a dental assistant for over twelve years. During that time, I have worked with many doctors and treated hundreds of dental patients. I chose this field because I understand visiting the dentist can be a stressful experience. I strive to ease the anxiety of coming to the dentist by helping people to relax, answering their questions, and ensuring that their experience is the most pleasant it can be. This is just one of the many aspects of being a dental assistant that I love. The fact that Doctor Peters specializes in orthodontics has given me the opportunity to expand my dental skills and further serve our patients. I feel confident knowing from the moment that our patients walk through the door, our team is committed to making sure their experience is a positive one. I feel very proud to be a part of a team that is compassionate and professional.
