Summary

I was born and raised in the Philippines. I left my homeland when I was 18 years old and came to America. Worked at Denny’s restaurant for 10 years. Started as a waitress, then trained servers hired for in the restaurant, promoted to train all hired servers for Denny’s restaurant in South Miami. I was promoted in management a few years later. Dedicated my 10 years at Denny’s restaurant. Within this 10 years, I got married and have 3 children which then led me to do changed career. I decided to go back to school for healthcare, but something quick and NO MATH (just terrible at it). Broward medical department suggested dental school. It is in my blood (as Filipinos) to care for other people especially patients.

I am excellent with my verbal skill communication with the patients and educating them of the source of disease with their oral health. I am great on what I do and help patients’ feel comfortable in making their treatment decisions

After pandemic 2020, it was myself and the doctor working side by side. I was doing all the preparing and cleaning of all rooms including surgical rooms, sterilizing instruments, review all schedules to be prepared for the next day and ordering all materials for the back office. The office made half million more from 2019 with just me as the assistant. At the most part, skipped lunch due to back to back surgeries and treatment same day (no complain there) . I work very hard, but I don’t get tired until I clocked out. I love what i do and I truly love my job.

I can offer, a never tiring assistant with the patients. Increase productivity in the back by doing conversion same treatment. To keep an eye on patients’ with future and pending treatment plan. To keep rooms, instruments, and sterilization as its best. I can take full mouth digital xrays (using dentrix now) in less than 10 minutes. I have great common sense of my work and surroundings. In July 2023, mark 10 years in the same office.

Worked at Denny’s for 10 years (my first non-dental job), Dr. Rubelman for 10 years, and be soon 10 years in this present job.
