What is your favorite part of your job? One of my favorite parts of my Job is working at a military facility. I have a lot to learn and its fun! Our dental team has learned to adapt to the current pandemic while delivering safe dental treatment. Our current situation has revealed many blessings. Personally, I am stronger and look forward to embracing our “new normal” for future operations. I have learned the value of staying in the game with my dental friends...no matter what! The dental mission will continue to be accomplished with pride. We are blessed!
