Registered Dental Hygienist
Connecting with patients on a one-to-one basis has always been enriching to me. I have been able to establish many permanent friendships while working here. My career has proved tremendously rewarding to me for more than 25 years. In the office, I evaluate and clean teeth, assess dental hygiene and plan treatment, educate patients about good oral hygiene, expose dental radiographs, apply anesthesia, administer fluoride treatment and sealants, and do root planing. Dr. Debbané has been very supportive of me and the work I do, and really encouraged me to excel. The rapport he has with the whole Smile Center team makes it easy for all of us to provide our patients with the best and most gentle dental care.
Recently, my world changed dramatically when I became the mother of two wonderful boys. They have really helped me rediscover the joys to be gained from family, friends, and not taking the simple things for granted.
Registered Dental Assistant
The greatest thing about my day is getting to see our patients smile. My love of interacting with people is why I chose dentistry as a career in the first place. Working in our office, I have been able to watch patients I have treated as children make the journey into adulthood and then become the parents of children I am treating. I assist Dr. Debbané with the Smile Center’s orthodontic cases, crowns, bridges, and dental implants. Dr. Debbané is a great boss and an excellent dentist who really cares about the comfort and health of each of his patients. The staff at the Smile Center is another reason this has been such a fun place to work for the nearly 30 years I have been here.
I am the proud mother of two adult children and two beautiful grandchildren. I can often be found at the gym taking Zumba classes.
Our patients climb out of the chair after treatment with a big smile on their face. That smile they have as they say “thank you, Rosie” just makes my day. I aim to earn that smile each time they visit. For almost half of the 33 years I have been in this field, I have been part of the Smile Center team. I sterilize instruments, prepare patient rooms, take X-rays, and assist Dr. Debbané chairside. Dr. Debbané’s sense of professionalism, dedication to his patients, and the great rapport he has with patients have always inspired me. It makes me very proud to work here and really sets the right tone for staff. We care about the well-being of our patients as much as we do about one another.
I get to spend quality time with my fantastic husband of 32 years with whom I have two adult children.
The most important aspect of my job involves making sure our patients have all the facts they need to be able to make decisions that fit with their unique oral health goals and concerns. It is important that I provide each patient I see with cost and treatment information that will ensure they receive the best care possible. The friendly atmosphere Dr. Debbané has created really makes this a great place to work. Since I’ve been at the Smile Center, I’ve enjoyed learning about people’s lives and sharing their experiences. I know I’ve really built lasting relationships with both coworkers and patients.
I enjoy dining with my husband. It is always a treat when one of our four children is able to join us. I am often at the gym when not with my family. I also love mariachi music.
I have the privilege of welcoming The Smile Center’s visitors. I greet and sign in patients, schedule appointments for cleanings and exams, and manage much of the paperwork. I also respond to all of our patients’ requests and ensure their comfort while visiting our office. Dr. Debbané and the whole team are very understanding with patients and sensitive to their concerns. He leads a very patient-focused, fun, and friendly office. I have found it very meaningful to see our younger patients grow into adulthood knowing that we have played a valuable role in maintaining their healthy smiles.
I love spending time with my two sons. I really enjoy taking them to the park and to the movies.
