We’re incredibly proud of our hardworking team. This week, we’d like to introduce a new member of the team and share her story. Meet: Olivia, our new Orthodontic Assistant. Olivia is a crucial member of our team because she assists Dr. Arruda and Dr. Desai in certain procedures and prepares everything they need to put braces on, make adjustments, and anything in between! She’ll also make sure you’re relaxed and comfortable in the patient chair.
Olivia was born in Monterey, California, and grew up in South Bend, Indiana. “What’s special about where I grew up is the humbling environment that prepared me for the challenges in the world.” She has lived in Chicago for six years. Some of her favorite things to do in the city include going to the neighborhood festivals or markets, cheering on the Sox, thrifting, and volunteering. Not to mention, we hear she makes a delicious baked mac and cheese. Yum!
Olivia chose the orthodontic field because of her knowledge and love of the dental field. “I already loved the dental field, but nothing makes me happier than witnessing individuals feel excited about having their perfect smile. I wanted to be a part of that. It’s great to experience with the patients their final results and the excitement of the outcome.”
