New to the field of dentistry! I have been with the practice since I first started assisting in February of 2019. I find being a dental assistant so rewarding when I can help put a nervous patient at ease as well as do some good for their health. My favorite part of my job would have to be seeing someone leave inspired due to work that we have done! I’m passionate about helping people and enjoy learning a new thing every day.
When I’m not helping make smiles brighter, I’m busy being a chaos coordinator (parent) with my husband of 7 years. We have 3 amazing kids and a German shepherd that keep life interesting! Our family enjoys fishing, bow hunting, camping, hiking, the zoo, the drive-in theater and playing/watching sports…Especially the Chiefs!!
Easton graduated from Pinnacle Career Institute for dental assisting in November 2019 but started at the practice as a student in September. She’s a hardworking, sun loving and just weird enough to make each appointment enjoyable.
When she is not working, Easton enjoys hanging out with her niece and nephew, sewing, sketching and dabbling into learning a new craft. You can usually catch her singing to whichever Disney movie is playing in the office.
