Front desk assistant
Family Dental Care
I work as a front desk assistant part-time in the afternoon where welcoming everyone who walks into the clinic and answering the phone were the main objectives when I was hired, though the longer I have worked there, the more has been added to my plate as an employee. My job now is to make the other employees' such as the hygienists and dental assistants jobs easier by fulfilling tasks that they would be required to do if I were not there to do them legally and ethically. My job ensures their ability to be more personal with patients because they are not busy doing side jobs. I do a fair share of filing and scanning documents, updating patient information, creating the new patient's folders, cleaning hygiene rooms, ordering, unpacking, and restocking supplies, restocking dispensers, keeping the entire office tidy and clean in general, confirming and making patient appointments, seating patients when they come in, keeping up with patient insurance to a small extent, and running whatever errands are required of me whether it is going to the bank or dropping off a package at the post office. There is almost always something for me to do because there are always odd jobs that need to be done, therefore I am constantly learning new things, and I fully enjoy it.
