A day at the Virtua Camden Dental Center
|Dorothy Erwin, registered dental assistant |
It’s 8 am and Dorothy Erwin, a state-certified and registered dental assistant, arrives to work at the Virtua Camden Dental Center. An employee for nine years, she knows it will be a busy day.
To begin the day, Dorothy sees a woman complaining of a toothache. After Dorothy takes x-rays to help determine the cause of her pain, she escorts the patient into one of the newly renovated exam rooms. The woman looks nervous; Dorothy comforts her and explains the upcoming procedure.
A dental resident examines the patient and finds a fairly large cavity – nothing serious but it will need treatment. After the dental resident alleviates the patient’s pain, Dorothy escorts her to the reception area.
“We know coming to the dentist can be scary sometimes. So we make it a top priority to make patients comfortable by treating them with compassion,” she says.
After bidding her patient good-bye, Dorothy approaches her next patient with a warm greeting and a smile.
The Dental Center houses a renowned dental residency program and provides general dentistry to Virtua staff and residents of Camden, Burlington and Gloucester counties.
