Registered Orthodontic Assistant (OA)

The moment Danielle went to her first dentist appointment she knew she wanted to become a dental assistant. Her absolute favorite part of working in ortho is “the relationships you build with the patients throughout treatment. You get to know them and watch the transformation from start to finish.” It’s a reward that you often don’t find in other careers. In her spare time, Danielle enjoys hanging out with her significant other and their dog, Zeus.
