March 6th through the 12th is Dental Assistants Recognition Week, so we think it is the perfect time to acknowledge and recognize the versatile, multi-talented members of our dental team! We don't know what we would do without Courtnie, Keegan, and Kasey!
We wanted to give a shout-out to each of our assistants!
First up is Courtnie, our Lead Expanded Duties Dental Assistant (#EDDA). Courtnie joined Oakwood Dental in April of 2015, and is our Lead Dental Assistant, having earned her certificate from the Colorado School of Dental Assisting (CDA), and completed her Expanded Duty Dental Assistant (EDDA) training with Dr. Brandt Jones. Courtnie's family is the center of her free time, with seven-year-old daughter Abbigail and two-year-old son Levi. She also loves all things outdoors and enjoys exploring the mountains, riding bikes, and swimming.
I love our patients and our staff that we have at Oakwood Dental. We have a great time at work together, and it shows in our office and how we treat our patients. Dr. Jones is an awesome boss and provides a supportive and fun work environment for us and our patients! I have a passion for the dental field and helping people love their smiles!
Thank you Courtnie, for all that you do for our patients and our team. We would be lost without you!
Next up is Keegan! Keegan is an Expanded Duties Dental Assistant (#EDDA) who joined the Oakwood Dental team in August of 2021. He started his career in dentistry after graduating from the Colorado School of Dental Assisting in Fort Collins in 2009. Keegan is currently attending Metropolitan State University in Denver 2 days a week and plans on applying for dental school in the winter!
With a true passion for the dental field, providing exceptional patient care with respect and professionalism is always my priority.
We are so happy to have Keegan as a part of our team!
Last, but certainly not least, is Kasey! Kasey graduated from Concorde Career College in January of 2021 and started her journey with Oakwood Dental during her externship the following month. She was such an amazing addition to the team, and we offered her a full-time position in March of 2021.
Kasey's infectious laughter and humor have brought so much joy to Oakwood Dental, and we are so happy to have her!
We are so lucky to have such amazing assistants at Oakwood Dental!!
