Denise's
Story

“It’s important to be respectful, and make sure patients feel welcome.”

“A big part of my job is customer service,” says Denise Callejo.   Denise is a Dental Assistant who provides adult dental services at Unity Care NW’s Cornwall Avenue offices. She sees many patients with significant dental needs. “Patients with complex dental issues can get nervous when they need several appointments to complete treatment. I encourage them to stay calm; if you take it one step at a time, it’s not as overwhelming.”

Denise moved to Bellingham from Hawaii, about six years ago. She received on-the-job training as a Dental Assistant there, and then she went on to pursue formal Dental Assistant training at Charter College in Bellingham.

 

 

She started as an intern at Unity Care NW,in 2014 and was later hired as full-time staff member.

One of the most rewarding parts of her job is getting to work with patients from different walks of life. She appreciates her role in improving patients’ oral health and seeing their sense of accomplishment after their dental work in complete. She looks forward to seeing her patients shift from restorative dental care to maintenance and hygiene.  “It’s important to be respectful, and make sure patients feel welcome.”

Jessica's
Story

“After fifteen years, Unity Care NW has given me a smile.”

When Jessica Bettino was a child, she had a negative experience with a dentist. It was so traumatic that she subsequently avoided going to the dentist as an adult. When she finally did, she experienced panic attacks.

“When I came to Unity Care, I expected the same. But I was shocked! The dental support team is always kind, and the dentist didn’t put me in any kind of pain. They treated me like a person and helped me get over my phobia.”

Jessica has now had numerous dental appointments at Unity Care NW’s health center in Ferndale, catching up on treatment after years of neglect.

“I never wanted to smile,” she said. Social situations were challenging because she felt insecure about her dental problems. “I even missed my Grandma’s funeral because of issues with my teeth.”  At Unity Care, she has had teeth extracted, cavities fixed, enamel replaced, and a bridge adjusted.  The results have been worth it.

“The dental team makes you feel good about yourself,” she said. Her new confidence is apparent.  “I would suggest Unity Care to anyone,” she says, as she showcases her brilliant new smile. “After fifteen years, Unity Care NW has given me a smile.”
