Last week we celebrated Dental Assistant Appreciation week. Having a week set aside for us to give recognition to those who serve is an excellent way to (as an employer) show that you care about your employees. We at the Smile Design Centre work hard to express our appreciation to our team members on a daily basis, and last week was no exception. Below is a little more about our Dental Assistants, Nicki and Missy. They both work hard on a daily basis to provide the patient and the doctor with an excellent experience. Have you had the pleasure of meeting them?
Nicki has been a Dental Assistant since the year 2000. Originally from Annapolis, she moved here in 2005 and discovered her passion for Roller Derby and has been skating with the Mason Dixon Roller Vixens ever since. Through Women’s Flat Track Derby Nicki came to know Dr.McAllister and we were lucky enough to have her join our team. She spends most of her time out side of work with her daughter Charlie, perfecting her skating skills and reading. Nicki and her daughter participated in the 2014 Color Splash 5k with her SDC teammates showing off their fun and colorful side. We love having her!
Missy got her start in dentistry in 2000, and the Smile Design Centre was fortunate enough to have her join the team during the summer of 2013. Missy’s main focus when you’re here is to help you have a positive, comfortable experience. Her warm, friendly personality will make you feel like you’ve been visiting with a friend, not sitting in a dental chair! Missy is from Waynesboro, PA and when she’s not taking great care of patients, you can find her in her garden or spending time with family and friends. Missy also volunteers her time to serving Meals on Wheels. Missy participated in the 2014 Color Splash 5k with her SDC teammates showing her willingness to get dirty for a good cause! Missy has been a perfect addition to our team!
