Meet a Valued Team Member – Laurie
March is a special month because we take the time to celebrate a very special, key group of team members in our office – our Dental Assistants. While the official celebration of Dental Assistants Recognition Week is during the first week of the month, we feel that it is important to recognize our team all of the time. We wanted to take some time this month to help you learn a little more about one of our dedicated dental assistants, Laurie.
Laurie has been a team member in our office for the past 14 years and has always been interested in the field of dentistry. She remembers always being curious and interested in the dentist when she would visit for her appointments as a child. She continued her interest as she grew older and became completely hooked when she completed an internship at a dental office. She attended school at the Berdan Institute.
When Laurie is not working in the office, you might find her traveling. That is her great passion. Although there really isn’t the opportunity to travel at the moment, Laurie plans to make Spain her next travel destination. Since Laurie can’t travel right now, she is probably cleaning something in her home, as she is a self-proclaimed clean freak. If she wasn’t working in the field of dentistry, you might find Laurie working in fashion.
Dr. Singer has been able to build an exceptional team that shares his philosophy of bringing a whole body approach to oral health and well-being. Laurie’s favorite part of being a dental assistant is helping patients achieve their dream smile. The advice that she wants to share with patients is to remind them that they are not alone and she is there to help them get over being scared.
If you would like to experience the exceptional dentistry that Laurie and the rest of our team members provide, contact our office to schedule an appointment. We love to give the residents of Fort Lee, NJ and the surrounding areas a reason to smile. We look forward to seeing you soon
