Mary K. - Certified Extended Function Dental Assistant
Mary is a tremendous help to Dr. Fernando. She is trained to perform procedures on patients such as making provisional crowns, simple teeth fillings, taking impressions, or adjusting prostheses, to name a few. She graduated from Manor College on 2006 and has worked on multiple offices since then. She has been with us since 2010.
Mary is one valuable package deal. Not only is she intuitive, quick and precise in her job but she is also a Miss Fix-It! Something she picked up hanging around with her dad.
A breath of fresh air, as Dr. Fernando would say, Mary is friendly and funny. Bishop, her old English bulldog, has kept her on top of our Fitbit group for long walks! She is an avid runner and regularly participates in distance runs whether be on the street or virtual.
