My name is Sarah and I am 30 years old. I was born in Watertown, NY. At 8 years old my parents moved us to Zephyrhills, FL where I was raised. In 2004, I attended Concorde Career Institute for dental assisting. I was 17 years old, straight out of high school with freedom on my mind, however, my older sister had other plans for me. As she was preparing to sign up for dental school, she was able to convince me to join. I have to say that becoming a part of the dental field was a life changing decision where I have enjoyed 11 wonderful years of experience. Throughout my journey I have been able to be a part of a wide variety of dentistry.
Being a part of Sunshine Smile Designs has been the best part of my career so far. Our staff is highly positive and motivated team players. We all come together as a whole to help give our patients high quality time, attention, work and care. It is amazing to work with co-workers who are all in sync.
Working with Dr. Clayton is a major highlight of my career. It is a wonderful privilege and I feel very blessed to be a part of her team. She is an amazing dentist who listens and truly cares about her patients. She is highly educated with superb recommendations. She is gentle, fast and efficient and does what she can to help her patients overcome their fears and lead them to a happier life.
Working with patients is another highlight of my career. I love to educate them and help them win their smiles back. Patients are overwhelmed with fear and anxiety but when Dr. Clayton walks into the room. She brings an atmosphere of reassurance, knowledge, peace and trust. It is so rewarding to watch a person with complete fear, overcome and proceed with treatment. We love to bring sunshine to their smile!
Throughout my career I have gained knowledge, leadership, superb work ethic, certification in dental assistance, radiology and CPR and have been able to provide a wonderful life for me and my 7 year old daughter. My daughters name is Faith. She was also born in Watertown, NY and will be raised here in Florida, following right after my foot steps. Because of my career in dentistry I am able to educate her and pass on a legacy of greatness.
