OUR RIGHT LEFT-HAND LADIES LEXI AND EMILY BRING LIGHT INTO THE OFFICE

I recently read an article that stated the most trusted person in a dental office isn’t the dentist; it’s the dental assistants. Well, I suppose I can be a little intimidating at times, and, at least at our office, we have the most amazing dental assistants. Lexi and Emily are always ready to assist in any lab case or restorative treatment we throw at them. They’re both friendly and have developed

years down in Texas. When I moved up to Ohio and needed a job, my sister happily informed me there was an opening at her office. I wasn’t sold on the idea of working with teeth, but I agreed to try it out. It wasn’t long before I realized I loved working in a dentist’s office! I’m currently attending Lakeland Community College and working toward becoming a dental hygienist.” I’m happy Lexi found working in the office so enjoyable that she has decided to make it her career. Though, between working in the office, going to school, owning her own boutique, and buying a new house with her boyfriend, dog, cat, and two hedgehogs, I can only imagine how busy she is! Our other dental assistant, Emily, also aspires to pursue a long-term career in dentistry. Emily was shadowing me at the office while she finished up college. She did so well during that time that I let her know if she ever found herself in Ohio after graduation, she’d have a job. To which she replied, “Ohio, here I come!” “I spent a lot of time shadowing in different dentist offices,” Emily will tell you, explaining her decision to make the move from her home in Michigan. “The environment here is truly one of a kind. Dr. Schermer is quite the jokester, and he really encourages the fun atmosphere. I

think it helps patients feel less nervous when they come in, which is awesome! I know it helps me look forward to coming in every day.” Emily is waiting to hear back from dental school, and she has big plans to become a pediatric dentist or orthodontist. Until then, she’s just as busy as Lexi, training to compete in a triathlon with her mother in July and visiting her boyfriend in Michigan on weekends. In all my years as a dentist, I’ve worked with a number of people. The team I have today is by far my favorite. When you have intelligent, dedicated individuals who are as passionate about helping patients as you are, then it does make the job easy. Lexi and Emily are fantastic dental assistants and I’m lucky to have them.

excellent relationships with patients. When a person sits down in the chair, they’re happy to know Lexi and Emily will be on their left side. “AKA, the side Dr. Schermer tells people to punch to,” Lexi will remind patients with a laugh. (To be fair, you don’t want to punch me while I have sharp objects in your mouth!) Lexi has been with us for a number of years, having joined the team at the recommendation of one of our dental hygienists, Taylor, who also happens to be Lexi’s sister. Lexi explains, “After high school, I worked as a cosmetologist for
