Since June 2020, I’ve been working as an Orthodontic Assistant at Bucks Mont Orthodontics in Warrington, PA.
I provide chairside assistance to Dr. Patel during the bonding or delivery of traditional metal and ceramic braces, lingual braces, clear aligners, palatal expanders, and other appliances. Following bandings, I review oral health and aftercare instructions with patients. I also take initial and progress records including panoramic and cephalometric X-rays, iTero scan, and intraoral photos, as well as alginate impressions as needed for Essix retainers.
I also work with Dr. Patel and Melissa, our Treatment Coordinator, in marketing efforts, office management, and most importantly, in creating a warm, fun environment for patients ages 7+.
At Bucks Mont, I’ve had the opportunity to learn about various aspects of orthodontics, patient care and safety, and many treatment modalities. I’ve also received invaluable mentorship from Dr. Patel with respect to dental school and practice management.
Providing superior care and support for our patients is paramount at BMO. As depicted below, we believe that joyfulness and play are integral to that care. We strive to foster positivity among our patients and their families, and to have a lasting impact on our communities.
