For the past 36 years, I have worked as a dental assistant with Putnam Dental Associates. Before dental assisting caught my
time. These patients radiate confidence as they walk out of our office with a beautiful smile. It’s rewarding to know that I was a part of that process.

Most people don’t consider their workplace to be an environment for making meaningful friendships and relationships, but that’s exactly what happened to me. I am grateful to work at a caring, professional practice with such a fantastic team of people. Putnam Dental Associates is truly a special place.
