Registered Dental Hygienist
I help to ensure our patients have the best possible dental health through cleanings, scaling and root planing, education on proper oral care, and other preventive services. My patients’ needs are my number one priority and it’s great to see them smiling at the end of their appointment. Dr. Chang always puts himself in the position of the patient. He always has their health at the forefront of his mind. I am a single young lady from Shreveport, Louisiana. In my free time I enjoy riding motorcycles, reading, and spending time with my dog, Trevor.
I started working for Dr. Chang as a dental assistant and then transitioned into my current role as a scheduling coordinator. I work at our front desk, so I’m often the first to welcome patients into our office with a warm smile, as well as keep their records updated and schedule their appointments. It is very rewarding to work in a field that is so focused on the health and happiness of our community. I love working for Dr. Chang because he is a great dentist who will do anything possible to make his patients happy and help them have a beautiful smile. I’m originally from California and have lived in Kansas for 11 years.
I assist our patients with all their financial needs, from explaining insurance benefits to presenting cases, billing, and appointment scheduling. I care and respect each patient I meet. I am responsible and dedicated about what I do in order to provide the best possible service for them. Every day I come into State Avenue Dental, I know I’m helping to make a difference in a person’s life. That feeling is very fulfilling.
My favorite part of assisting Dr. Chang is putting a smile on my patients’ faces and helping to give their confidence back. Some people don’t want to smile because they don’t like their teeth; I’m glad to work in a field where we are able to change that. I’m also fluent in Spanish and English, so I’m more than happy to translate for any of our Spanish-speaking families. I feel very lucky to work with the State Avenue Dental Team, especially with Dr. Chang. He always goes out of his way to make his patients happy. When I’m not in the office I have a beautiful daughter who I love spending time with.
I assist Dr. Chang with patient care, clean our clinical areas, and help translate for patients who do not speak English. Even though I’ve only worked here a short time, I really feel like I’ve become part of the State Avenue Dental family. It’s very rewarding to work in a field where I can help people have a beautiful smile while learning new things every day. I have two beautiful daughters who are my motivation and inspiration to do better and succeed in life.
In addition to helping Dr. Chang with patient care, I also set up rooms, clean and sterilize our equipment, and take X-rays. I enjoy the hands-on aspect of my job and love each relationship I create with the patients I meet. Dr. Chang is an excellent dentist and always stands behind the quality of his work. It’s easy to recommend him to everyone I meet. At home, I have three wonderful boys that are very active and are in sports all year long. They keep me on my toes!
