Diana has been a chair side assistant for Drs. Bremer, Atkinson and Jacobson since 2010. She has a wide range of duties from ordering supplies to four handed dentistry and everything in between. The best part of her job is of course the patients. Even though the procedures can be the same, the patients make it fun and interesting. She learns a lot from our patients and takes to heart their fears and worries. Our patients like the fact that the doctors spend a lot of time explaining what needs to be done and the possible consequences if the procedures are not performed, and how it will affect the patient’s overall health.
On a personal note, spending time with family and friends is very important to Diana and she LOVES to travel. Ask her to tell you about some of the wonderful places she has been!
