Description

http://www.SalemDentist.com I was looking to become part of a practice that was fast paced, wanted to bring their assistants to a higher bar and allowing them to use their expanded functions and I just happen to apply here and this was the opportunity. Actually, I use to work at a practice in Newport and I also worked a place in Corvallis, both very different. Not as fast paced, not two doctors and the staff wasn't quite as large. When I'm not at work, usually I'm in Albany where I live with my husband and we go camping, go to the sand dunes where we both grew up over on the coast. The environment is very friendly, kind of like a home even though we're a large practice, when patients walk in we know their first name, we welcome them, we like to use their name, we like to know about them and so we try to, even though it's large, we try to make it feel very small and intimate. We all get along very well, we're like sisters in good and bad ways. There's things that we do that might frustrate you, but at the end of the day we're a team and that's just how it is here. Usually, I assist Dr. Amanda. She's very compassionate, she does really well with children and she has a way with telling them stories and getting them into taking care of their dental work. Dr. Raleigh is a big jokester. He really helps relax people and kind of take away the stress of getting dental work done. What this practice makes different is that, of course, the doctors. Their style of dentistry and the way that they treat their patients. All of the patients that come in and are very nervous about their smile and are very fearful, some of them that have to be sedated, those ones are rewarding when they can leave with giving you a hug and looking forward to your next visit. http://www.SalemDentist.com
