Lisa M. Lovering: A dental assistant you should know!
American Dental Assistants Association    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Being a certified dental assistant is one of the most exciting and rewarding professions I could have ever imagined, said Lisa M. Lovering. Dental assisting is more than just a job for me; it is my career. My career began in December of 1995 and has been going strong ever since. I am very passionate about what I do. When people ask me what I do for a living I am proud to say I have the best job ever! I get paid to educate, inform and help people get the oral health care they need and deserve. I treat everyone as a personal family member. When I tell people that, they say they want to go to my office and be treated like your family member.

One zing to the nerve of a tooth after a sip or bite of food is enough to send even the hungriest bear running from the kitchen. Sensitive teeth can seriously limit the enjoyment of your favorite fare. So if ice cream meeting your tooth has you seeing stars, the layer beneath the surface of your tooth (called dentin) has become exposed, says Eric Sung, DDS, professor at UCLA's School of Dentistry.
