Kristy Eddleman — A dental assistant you should know
American Dental Assistants Association    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

I first considered a career in dental hygiene, but (after some research) ... I decided on dental assisting. That has been one of the best decisions that I have made. I went to an ADA accredited school and received a one-year diploma in dental assisting. I continue my education by attending dental assisting meetings. In my 30 year career, I have worked for two dentists. My favorite was Dr. George Stuart. He was an example of a great leader. I've worked as a chairside assistant, clinical instructor at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, N.C. and a practice administrator.
