Elizabeth Prather - Dental Assistant

My name is Elizabeth Prather, I am a Dental Assistant. I have been in the dental field since 2007. One of the best things about my job is that it’s always something different, be it the people or the procedure that we are doing that day. I have fun at my job and it is something I have been passionate about since I was a teen my Family would say it is my calling. I love knowing that I can help change the way someone sees their dentist or their own smile and that makes it all worth it. When I am not at work I am at home with my 3 boys riding bikes, playing cards or baking. Family is the most important part of my life and it makes it that much sweeter knowing we treat everybody here like family.
