“When I got into private practice I realized after a year that I really didn’t like what I was doing.”

“I got the job and I worked for a very very busy pedo practice.”
“When the dental hygienists would go on vacation I would get to fill their spot.”
“I got to hone in on my management and my clinical skills.”
“I love hearing when employers invest in employees.”
