Hi guys, my name is Krissy, I’m an assistant here at Downtown Dental, and I’m here to share a little bit about myself.
Q: Krissy, what sparked your interest in dentistry?
A: So, when I was younger, my mom used to take me to the dentist every six months for my cleanings and check-ups. And the hygienists, they were very nice to me and when they were checking my mouth for cavities, which was kind of embarrassing, the doctor used to call-out a number like, you know, ’32, MOB, 7, BOC … I’m like, “What is he talking about?” Like, I found it interesting because I wanted to know what was going on in my mouth and they are not really explaining, they’re just saying, “You’ve got cavities” and I’m just like “What does that mean?”
So, ever since then, I stashed a little interest in it, but my original plan was to be an interior designer. When I got to high school, they had a career fair going on and I saw the dentist’s booth and I was really interested in that, and I signed up and the rest is history.
Q: So, what’s your favorite part about working at Downtown Dental?
A: Well, after bringing the patient back of course I like to get to know them on a little personal level, so we can introduce each other and then I like to help them improve on their oral hygiene. So, I like to, you know, impact them by showing them little tricks and tips on how they can prevent cavities, they can have beautiful gums, and at their next recall appointment, they don’t have any gauging cavities.
Q: So, what do you like to do in your free time?
A: Well, when I’m not in this beautiful office, I like to be outside, doing adventurous things, like taking pictures, going to different, you know, parks, looking at waterfalls, listening to music, different things like that.
Q: Alright Krissy, thank you for sharing with us.
A: Well, thank you guys for watching. It was nice talking to you guys, hope to see you soon. Bye!
