“I joined MCDC 6 years ago this month!!! I started assisting the pediatric dentist then moved to general dentist and have now been working with our students from U of D for almost three years. Hart is my home and I love it there!!”

“I have been with MCDC since April of 2011! I started as a dental assistant in Sidney to work only on Friday’s, and eventually started to sub in Sidney with Dr. H.  When a position became available for the front desk, I decided to take it the opportunity. Fast forward a few years and I’m still here, now as an Office Manager.”
