In this series, we go behind-the-scenes to meet the people who make CPW Dentistry the amazing place it is. This month, we’re featuring Cailin.
What’s your role here at CPW Dentistry and what does a typical day look like for you?
I wear many hats here at CPW. First off, I am a dental hygienist. I aid my patients in fighting gum disease and provide other preventive treatments for them. 50% of my time is spent with my patients and the other 50% I spend as the hygiene team leader. I research the newest products and technology for the dental hygiene department and meet with my team members monthly. I am also part of the scheduling team helping to ensure all our patients with gum disease are up to date on their gum care appointments. Recently most of my days have been spent interviewing candidates for our open dental assistant position.
Why do you love working at CPW Dentistry?
I love my job here at CPW. I am surrounded by co-workers that are so inspiring. We are truly like a family, and there is no other place I would rather be. Working with a team of people who support you is the most amazing feeling in the world. I wish everyone could feel this way about their careers.
What are you passionate about?
I want to impact lives through education and compassion, my patients and my co-workers. I actually love seeing really anxious patients. To form a trusting relationship, and have that patient keep returning, I know I made a difference in that patient’s oral health.
What makes you wildly happy?
Being surrounded by my friends and husband.
What is your favorite oral health fact?
Cavities are a communicable disease. MIND BLOWN!
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done and would you do it again?
I traveled alone to Paris for 10 days. I would totally travel solo again. Having the freedom to do whatever you want whenever you want is great, however, I wouldn’t go for that long again. Towards the end, I was getting a bit homesick.
