Dental Assistant Full-Time
We are a private practice dental office located in Federal Way. Our team is comprised of 11 dental professionals that take pride in our profession, as well as our individual contribution to our team. We work together to serve our patients, who we consider like close friends or family. Our vision states “We are a legacy practice built on relationships”, and that is our goal. This practice was originally started by our dentist's father-in-law in 1968, and was transitioned to Dr. in 2005; we consider it an honor and important responsibility to treat the families of Twin Lakes/Federal Way in the same excellent manner they have become accustomed to over the past 40 years.
Job Description: Great pay, predictable and family-friendly hours, encouraging team environment, high quality dentistry delivered!
Are you looking to join a great team, and utilize your professional skills to serve a special population of long-time dental patients?
Our private practice is growing with the addition of our associate, and we are looking for just the right individual to complement our current assisting team of 2 assistants. Our ideal candidate has several years (2-5years+) of chairside assisting experience in a fast-paced, restorative-focused practice and is able to handle all the duties of a fully expanded dental assistant (rubber dam placement, cord packing, temporary fabrication) with excellence. We are looking for someone who values attention to detail, is task-focused, goal-oriented, and able to multi-task while staying calm, poised and professional. Relationships with our patients are important, and so a high level of emotional intelligence is required to meet the patient’s expectations with excellent customer service, while also delivering an exceptional dental outcome. Experience with and a working knowledge of our dental software (Dentrix) and imaging system (Dexis) is necessary, as well as a growth mindset, staying open to learning our office systems and applying constructive feedback during the onboarding process. We have a fun and supportive team who value honesty, hard work, good attendance, focus and efficiency while on the job, and at the same time have a common goal of being able to disengage from work at the end of the day to spend time with family, friends, pets and hobbies that help keep the work/life balance in check
