As 2018 comes to a close, the season of gratitude allows us to reflect on what we’re truly thankful for in this year. To kick off the season, we asked our DentalPost followers, “Why are you thankful to work in dentistry?” Here is what they said:
Carol D. – I am now in my 33rd year of being a dental assistant. I can honestly say, I love my job and get such a feeling of satisfaction, knowing that changing a person smile, can change their life! Giving someone confidence in their appearance, and pride in their smile is worth every challenge we deal with from the difficult patient. A confident smile is your best asset!!!
Jacqui M. – All the great new technology and of course, the wonderful patients!
Connie O. – It’s given me a career that’s been flexible as my life has changed. From working full time for 15 years to becoming a mother and moving into public health Hygiene, and a part-time half day everyday schedule. Its afforded me the opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives and given me a comfortable life in the process.
Wanda B. – So thankful to have 35 years of educating patients about there oral health has been a very rewarding career and still loving it every day.
Diane M. – I love all my coworkers, patients & the work I do to help people improve their health and lives. Very thankful for this!
Lezlie W. – Working in this field for 30+ years I have engaged with many patients and that has what made me stay.
Liudmyla J. – I love helping people and in this field, I can and I do! 😊
