Lead Dental Assistant Full-Time
Practice Description: Our office is located in Burien, which is home for most of us in the office.
We all consider the office our "office family" and our patients our "dental family". We believe that being with each other for 8 to 9 hours a day we spend more time with each other than our own families at home. We often go out to dinner, happy hour or an occasional weekend retreat for much needed relaxation. We also support one another at the office. If someone is running behind we all try to step in and get that staff member back on schedule. We often bring snacks and treats to share with each other to graze on during the work week. We also pride ourselves on our professionalism, which is expressed by our patients through great reviews on Google, Yelp and Facebook. Sadly our current assistant is moving to Atlanta to be closer to family, so we are looking to find a dental assistant to complete our fab five!
