Over the past few years we have been privileged to work closely with the Dental Assisting Program at Kirkwood Community College. We have enjoyed helping to train new dental assistants by allowing them to do rotations through our office. Carla, with over 30 years of experience in dentistry, has been able to share her knowledge and skills with the students. She has worked side by side with a number of Kirkwood students and shared her knowledge of general chairside assisting, as well radiation and health safety. We also encourage students to learn expanded functions as a way to further their education after graduation. Recently, we were able to hire one of the exceptional students, Rochelle, who rotated through our office. We plan to continue our great relationship with the Kirkwood Dental Assisting Program, in Hopes to have a lasting influence in the professional development of the new incoming dental assisting students.
Dr. Besler is very passionate in encouraging the new dental students, so much in fact that Kirkwood has invited Dr. Besler to serve on the Dental Assisting Advisory Committee. Dr. Besler looks forward to sharing her experience with Kirkwood and has accepted the position.
