Laura Claywell is a Dental Assistant and has been chair-side assisting and working in the dental lab at the same dental practice since 1982.
Her interest in the dental field began in junior high school when she took part in a leadership camp at University of Gainesville that discussed future careers.
She moved to Zephyrhills, Florida from Michigan in 1966 where she attended all grades and graduated with honors, received her high school diploma and went on to get her Dental & Radiology Certification in Tampa, FL. She has since taken numerous dental courses, including OSHA training, CPR certification, Dental Lab training, Teeth Bleaching training, MGE training.
Laura enjoys the artistic aspect of the dental field in which she fabricates artificial temporary appliances. She feels it is rewarding to see the look on the patient's face when they see what a nice smile they have again.
She enjoys working with the highly talented and personable dental team at Sunshine Smile Designs and feels they are not just co-workers, but friends, including the Dentists, Dr Vincent Delle-donne and Dr. Ariana Clayton.
When she is not at the dental practice, Laura enjoys spending quality time with her family, especially her new grandson, reading mysteries and working with her horses.
