  • #myLAcommute I really enjoy making patients comfortable

    1 week ago

    MAYA H.

    My commute is long, but I don’t complain about it. And I don’t fight it. It’s better to have a positive attitude. I’m a dental assistant. The other day, I had a patient who was crying, freaking out, and saying she was going to pass out. People are really vulnerable at the dentist. I know everyone hates going to the dentist, but I really enjoy making patients comfortable. I had braces growing up, so I have empathy.
