Professional Summary

Enthusiastic Registered Dental Assistant eager to contribute to team success through hard work, attention to detail and excellent organizational skills. Motivated to learn, grow and excel in the Dental Industry. Dedicated to enhancing patient relationships by applying excellent communication skills, effective problem-solving abilities and attention to detail. In-depth knowledge of preparing patients and tools for various dental procedures. Offering hands-on expertise in sustaining patient comfort. Skilled at taking dental x-rays, preparing dental impressions and assisting dental hygienists and dentists. Expert at creating and maintaining clean and sterile environments. I take good direction and learn hands on better.

I do not have years of experience but this is what I would love to make a career out of. It's hard to get my foot in the door but I know God will open the right one up for me. I would love to get more experience being a Dental Assistant and further my career. I have been obsessed with teeth and the human mouth since I was a child. I take immaculate care of my mouth and I am passing this knowledge onto my son who is fixing to turn 3 years old, and he loves to brush and floss his teeth.

I plan on moving from Registered Dental Assistant, to Dental Hygienist , and maybe even a Dentist or Oral Surgeon one day.
