Dental Assistant Training Program Graduates its First Class of DAs

One of the new programs designed to improve both internal and external operations at PCHC Dental Center, the Dental Assisting Training Program, celebrated its first cohort of graduates this week, Abby Pelotte, Brooklyn Tompkins, and Michaela Stewart, successfully completed a rigorous eight-week training program, with the goal of providing on-the-job training to get health care professionals new to the D.A. world up to speed in a supportive, enriching way.

The types of skills that the new trio will now bring to the table consist of four-handed dental assisting training, dental x-ray foundations, patient education, dental materials, professionalism, and much more.

Practice manager Danica Loring is incredibly proud of the first group that has paved the way for future classes.

“Early on when the candidates for the dental assisting program were chosen, we knew quickly that these individuals were a rare find,” Loring said. “I have personally watched this class of dental assistants blossom in their new roles. They started as individuals who had limited knowledge of dental and have quickly become a part of our seasoned team who asks questions and make suggestions when needed for smooth workflows.”

Loring also shared information on each one of the graduates which you can find below:

Abby Pelotte:
“Abby is a dental assistant that brings a smile to everyone’s face. She is fun and complete joy here at the Dental Center.”
Brooklyn Tompkins:
“Brooklyn is always striving to learn more and providing the best quality of care at all times.”
Michaela Stewart:
“Michaela eases everyone with her presence. She has a natural ability to ease and talk patients through the most difficult procedures.”

Congratulations to our new graduates and thank you to all of our Dental Center staff who have helped make this program a rousing success!
