A good job that I like going to every day
Dental Receptionist (Employé actuel) – Toronto, ON – 8 juillet 2015
PapeFinch Dental is a business with a warm, friendly environment. Patients are greeted by first name and they seem happy to be there, in spite of it being a dentist's office. A typical day of work for me is doing recall (which means calling patients to remind them of overdue cleanings or make them aware that they are coming due for them), putting files away and pulling files for the next day's appointments. I take phone call inquiries as well as verbal inquiries from patients walking into the office. It's a comfortable atmosphere in spite of the crazy (in a good way) days. The staff is professional but friendly, especially the owner who also happens to be one of the dentists. My most enjoyable part of the job is all the people that walk through the door and hearing fascinating stories of people's lives. I have discovered many vacation locations I would like to try from conversations with patients while they wait for the dentist, hygienist or denturist. I think the hardest part of the job is the long hours of sitting. I have learned to make excuses to get up and stretch throughout the day and that helps. I get along well with my co-workers who have fast become friends as we all work closely to ensure that the patient experience is a good one. Some of our patients travel many miles to see our dentists because they are a cut above the rest.
Some days it's hard to get lunch breaks because it's super busy and they are not scheduled.
