Stacy – Dental Assistant
I started in dentistry over 27 years ago because I loved working with patients, and I realized I have a knack for helping make things work for them. My job has many titles: dental assistant, receptionist, and treatment coordinator. But really, my job is to make it happen for the patient; and do anything that makes the patient’s life easier. One of the things I love most about dentistry is how changing a patient’s smile transforms their life. I’ve chose to work with Dr Olszewski because of her knowledge and how much passion she has for dentistry and for her patients. Everyone comments when they come in how it feels so different, calm and welcoming. It’s a safe, healthy and professional office and I love to work here. I have 2 cats, and I love reading about health and personal wellbeing while being on my comfy couch.
