Getting To Better Know Our Awesome Dental Assistant, Jolene

ALL RIGHT, EVERYONE, it’s Jolene’s turn to be featured on our blog. Read on to learn about her life in and out of the office:

Where are you originally from?

“I am originally from Albert Lee, Minnesota. My family moved to California when I was five years old.”

What made you decide that you wanted to become a dental assistant?

“We had a family friend who was a dentist. My mother thought being a dental assistant was a good idea. So, when I was at Diablo Valley College, I went by the dental assisting department and applied. Now, 34 years later, I serve on the Advisory Board of the DVC dental assisting program.”

When you started as a dental assistant was there something funny that happened? Do you dare tell us that story?

“In the beginning, in the early 1980’s, we did not wear gloves or masks (PPE equipment). That is very strange to us now to think of putting our bare hands into someone’s mouth!”

What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?

“My favorite thing to do is to spend time with my husband. We have been married 35 years. He took me to my high school Senior Ball.”

What do you enjoy most about being a dental assistant?

“What I enjoy most about dental assisting is interacting with my patients. I enjoy speaking with them and the long term relationships that we build.”
