Cassandra started out at our office as a sterilization tech in 2017. We watched her go through hygiene school at Lake Superior College and immediately hired her full time as a dental hygienist upon her graduation in 2019. She now is an assistant to our doctors and really enjoys this new and challenging role. As an assistant, she is able to apply her hygiene skills along with her assisting skills to create a very unique role in our office.
Cassie is a Duluth native and continues to reside here with her long-time boyfriend, Ryan, and their 2 year old son, Mac. She thoroughly enjoys being a mom and soaking in every stage of Mac’s development. In her free time, Cassie enjoys hanging out with her little family and spending time at their family cabin in Wisconsin.
When asked what her favorite part about her job is, Cassie shared, “Helping patients and making coming to the dentist a positive experience.” That comes as no surprise, as her attitude toward patients and coworkers has always been helpful. She’s someone we can count on to give 100% and we can also count on her to make us laugh until we cry. Please don’t ask her to pronounce a difficult name!
A little known fact about Cassie is that she also graduated from a restorative functions class in the Twin Cities, which allows her to perform additional assisting duties, such as placing certain fillings. This frees the doctor she is working with to move on to other tasks while she finishes the procedure. The restorative functions certificate ensures no two days are the same at our office for Cassie.
Cassie is a breath of fresh air and always has a ready smile on her face. She is sharp and efficient and proud of the work she does. In fact, she lists graduating hygiene school and her restorative functions class, along with being a good mom, among her proudest achievements. Her passion for the care and comfort of the patients she sees is top notch. We are extremely lucky to have her on our team!
