Meet an Important Member of Dr. Patty’s Team
Position: Operations Manager/ CEREC Specialist
I am originally from…The Bahamas
I decide to become the Cerec Specialist because…After managing the Spa I slowly branched into helping with other aspects of the practice. I found that I greatly enjoyed dentistry. The CEREC Machine especially intrigued me because it combines graphic design with ceramics. Which are two things that I enjoy.
If you don’t know…CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.
How does it work…The CEREC machine is the latest in technology in terms of making crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers, bridges and implant abutments. The machine has a camera that takes hundreds of thousands of photos and converts them into 3D images. We then digitally create the restoration and then mill it. It something similar to a 3D printer.
The best part of using CEREC…It is all done in the office. In most cases clients get services done the same day.
The best part of being an Operations Manager/CEREC Specialist…I get to deal with all aspects of the practice and not just one focus on one field/area. I am always learning new things with the CEREC and no two cases are the same.
The question people often ask me about my job is…Do I enjoy working here? Yes, I absolutely love my job! I enjoy interacting with clients, learning about new products and techniques and just being a part of making people feel good about themselves.
The thing I enjoy most about working at Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique…There is always room to grow and learn new things. I am not limited to a set job description. I am able to grow and flourish under Dr. Patty’s instruction.
