Dental Assistant Full-Time
Practice Description: We are a progressive, highly regarded restorative, cosmetic and preventive general dental office, emphasizing patient centered personalized care, highest level direct and indirect restorative dentistry (with a "tooth preserving", less invasive emphasis) and a true preventive focus. We work with a small number of very talented specialists for oral surgery, endo, ortho and surgical perio. We are a tight knit team, with two part-time hygienists (5-6 days of hygiene in our 4 day work week), one front desk person, and one assistant. Our current assistant is returning to school, thus creating an opening for this position.
We are an independent practice – not affiliated with any insurance plans (although most of our patients have some form of dental insurance). We do not have production goals and we do not ever recommend treatment to increase revenue.
