Meet Our Newest Dental Assistant - Natalia!
Quince Orchard Dental Care has taken great care to put together an exemplary team of dental practitioners who are patient-focused and can make every dental visit a pleasant experience. One of the more recent additions to our team is Natalia. Natalia brings with her over 10 years of experience in the field and in a very short time she has shown us how easily she can bond with and make our patients feel comfortable. If you haven’t had the chance to meet her yet, check out this article for a little bit of insight into who she is.
Natalia has somewhat always known that she wanted to have a career in the dental field. She was always interested in seeing how things were made and the transformations that people undergo with their confidence and attitude all by having better teeth and a different smile. Natalia is very close with her mother and credits her for making her the person she is today. Even though she’s married and has her own family now, Natalia spends a lot of her time with her mother, almost every weekend!
She attended high school at Rockville High School then went on to do a Dental Assistant course at Kaplan College. Earlier this year she was looking for a new pediatric practice to move to and Quince Orchard Dental Care showed up on her Indeed account. The rest, as they say, is history. Natalia has had the privilege of watching many of her pediatric patients grow and develop over the years and this is one of the things that makes this career so rewarding to her. People often underestimate how much having crooked, or missing teeth can impact a person’s self-confidence especially for young people who can often experience bullying and ostracism. Whenever a patient achieves that beautiful smile that boosts their confidence, it’s a moment of celebration for everyone involved.
Outside of the office, Natalia loves to spend time outdoors. She loves to spend time with her family visiting places like the beach and the aquarium and attending barbecues. She describes herself as an adrenaline junkie, noting that she and her husband love to ride motorcycles and she has even been skydiving! Since the birth of her son 2 years ago, the adrenaline-filled activities have decreased but she still loves to do something thrilling when the chance presents itself. She is also a big animal lover and is the mother to not only a 2-year-old son but to three dogs, two birds, a fish, and a hamster. She believes that honesty, straightforwardness, and realness are important traits for a person to have.
Quince Orchard Dental Care aims to bring together some of the most qualified and patient-friendly dental practitioners in the area. When you visit our office you’re sure to be greeted with a smile. The next time you visit us, be sure to say hi or give Natalia a wave.
