Here at Summit Dental, we care about always providing an experience that isn’t just about your oral health but also an environment that can put your mind at ease. How do you do that you might ask… Our team.
Dr. Yoshida has hand-crafted a team. A family that can undoubtedly work together like a well-oiled hand tool for your next crown or your handpiece for your next periodontal cleaning. Each individual provides an ingredient that adds to the recipe of harmony. Upon entering our office you will encounter Jackie. The front office manager isn’t just an elevation climber outside of work but also at work. She has a continuous job to do and has the knowingness to complete each task no matter how many phone calls or waiting on hold it takes. Her achievements in life continually grow whether she knows it or not. Looking at her two daughters grow into women that a stranger on the street can admire. She has the ability to do strenuous challenges that most can’t even fathom. Jackie has hiked to the highest mountain in the contiguous United States. Not only does she like to climb 14,000 feet on a mountain but she also enjoys falling out of a plan that height. Maybe being at that elevation is her sweet spot!
Audrey is our newest member at our office. Having no experience in the Dental field is not a problem. She is one of the quickest learners and has the qualities to fit right into our family. Audrey has served our Country and some would say that type of training can truly form a hard-working powerful person. She not only has a passion to grow at the office but to also become someone that everyone at Summit dental can count on for her to do. Audrey is no newcomer when it comes to human connection. She can become best friends with the stranger walking down the street in no time. Some would find that odd while others find that to be a breath of fresh air. Audrey has two growing boys that she is working with her husband to raise to be kind gentlemen. Road trips and get-togethers is what gives Audrey her essence.
Next we have Debby! Debby travels from Lucerne because Summit Dental holds a dear place in her heart. Constantly bringing her selflessness because to her that is a trait that she admires most about herself. She has been in the Dental field for over 21 years and cant seem to find a reason to ever leave. She loves that our team has each others back and that we all look out for each other. Debby appreciates what our team stands for as individuals and as a whole. Working alongside Doctor Yoshida and giving everyone a reason to smile. Not just having a listening ear to Doctor Yoshida’s needs but also to the patients.Born and raised Big Bearian Tawni falls nothing short of extraordinary. She loves to take initiative at work and learn with a positive attitude. Continuously attacking your gums and plaque but she aspires to conquer world peace. Previously has been a temp but now is fulfilling Jan’s spot. So far Jan’s near and dear patients have accepted Tawni into their mouths with open jaws and happy hearts. Tawni never wants to take the spot of someone that was so dear to our family but instead add an extra layer to the evolving growth that Summit Dental will always strive to do. Something that she always likes to tell her patients besides her Dad jokes are to stay hydrated. Brush and floss every day. Never skip oral hygiene day!
Jenny is someone that has a choice to work other places. Living down the mountain like some other patients we have. Doctor provides an environment that people would drive miles to be in. Jenny being one of them. Everyone is always in search of finding a job that they love to do but thats not just it. It is about finding a job that you like to do with people that you want to be around. Like a fresh relationship and being in the “honeymoon stage.” At Summit Dental it feels like a constant honeymoon stage, a home.
Our Instructor of the group is Stephanie. Many people don’t know this but she has been teaching at a Dental Assistant school for 5 years now. Just laying the foundation for students to be the best. Stephanie has the patience and a calm demeanor. Being a hygienist it is safe to say that Stephanie has a thirst for knowledge and a passion for sharing. Having an ear for musical instruments and playing many you will find her jamming out with daughter playing the drums. If not that in the garden. You can tell her daughter likes to garden because she will be picking plants and smelling all of them. Devon’s dreams came true not too long ago. Her dream of working at Summit Dental. It was her end goal working at this office. There isn’t a place like it and you will find many patients saying the same.
Devon loves the way we treat our patients and raising the bar of excellence at any opportunity we have. The laughter that is more of a constant than any instrument used in the office. Her goals in the office is to improve on being a better assistant and to make Doctor Yoshida proud to have her. Devon’s goals in life are to live a more healthy and active lifestyle. The pursuit of the simple and pure love in life. In the end teaching her son the same.
Doctor Yoshida is setting the tone that not many can reach and obtain. It takes a truly remarkable good person to make a team that can sing like the way Summit Dental does. She has particular attributes that she looks for in a team for a reason. Every single member of this family look forward to work everyday not just because of the pay or the perks but because every person aspires to make Doctor proud and care deeply for the patients. Coming to work isn’t just about loving what you do but in all actuality it is about loving who you work with. We all have nothing but gratitude for Doctor bringing us together. We will have this family for alifetime.
