Sarah

Dental Assistant

Sarah joined the Roots Dental team as a self proclaimed Rockstar Dental Assistant and has been living up to that name since arriving in the summer of 2019. A Portland native, she was a 5-star Varsity athlete at Biztech high and also delivered the Salutatory for her class. Not one to settle for second best, her collegiate studies led her to a business management degree that landed her a job working in the front office handling insurance verifications. Sarah soon became intrigued by the work in the operatories including the fascinating world of Oral Surgery. Today, Sarah works side by side with Dr. Kaufman to ensure everything is prepped, sterilized, and ready well in advance of your arrival for treatment. Sarah’s unsatisfied hunger to learn more every day makes her a great fit at Roots Dental as we see patients from all walks of life with varying needs to get their smiles back on track.

 

She loves coming to work everyday ready to learn and provide the best experience for our patients.
