I work at Kentucky Periodontics and Implant Dentistry because they really understand the impact a confident smile can make in someone’s life. I love being a dental assistant! Patients come in with a lack of confidence and leave with the biggest and proudest smile. It feels amazing to change so many patients’ quality of life one mouth at a time!
