At Phoenix Endodontic Group, we believe our staff is what makes our practice so successful! As part of our employee spotlight series, this month, we are highlighting Sarah Apostolakis, one of our prized dental assistants! When not working, Sarah loves being active, “I love the ocean; surfing and snorkeling. I also enjoy hiking and camping.” She brings this same energy to her work. Sarah has experience in periodontics, oral surgery, and general dentistry.
She expanded on her ongoing learning experience at Phoenix Endodontic Group. “I am grateful to be learning Endodontics, as well as, general assisting skills under the guidance of the highly experienced and knowledgeable professionals at Phoenix Endodontic Group.” Sarah was asked to give an example of the kind of experience that makes Dental Assisting so rewarding:
“A woman had eroded all the enamel off of her teeth; the after effect of drinking 2 liters of Diet Coke per day. Her teeth were constantly sensitive and she needed a full mouth reconstruction. We gave her, her smile back, and she was able to eat and drink without sensitivity! In addition, it being a huge confidence booster for her. It was a very rewarding experience.”
Changing negative views of dentistry to positive experiences is why she got into the field. Sarah’s passion for learning and gentle chairside assistance makes her a great addition to the team at Phoenix Endodontic Group.
