Hailey, Dental Assistant
Kara, Dental Assistant
I have been a dental assistant all over mid-eastern Missouri since 2015. My favorite aspect of assisting Dr. Brad is getting to know my patients, but the most rewarding is exceeding patient expectations when they finish their treatment. When I'm not assisting Dr. Brad, you can find me out walking my German Shepard, playing piano, or caring for my lovely children and husband. Our most visited vacation spot: New Orleans!
