Dental Assistant Lindsey says seeing family members struggle with dental issues gave her an urge to help others who seek dental treatment. She stays busy setting up for dental procedures, assisting the dentist, and taking digital photos and radiographs for diagnostic purposes.
Lindsey was born and raised in Salina, KS and still resides in Salina. She has taken courses at Cloud County Community College, and was enrolled at SATC for the Dental Assisting program but was offered the job right before she started classes. “I was very fortunate to be able to be trained on the job and have hands on practice!” she says, adding “Working directly with patients to build trust and then seeing them leave with a smile, they can be proud of, is the best part of my job.”
When she’s not ensuring patients feel comfortable in the chair, Lindsey is hanging out with her fiancé, or working out at Crossfit Salina. She also enjoys running races, spending time outdoors, reading books, and spending time with family. Given a year off to do anything, Lindsey says she would travel and do volunteer work to keep busy.
