Getting to Know Lizette

1. Describe your role in Dr. Ford’s cosmetic dentistry practice.

My role at Dr. Ford’s office is that of hygiene coordinator. I enjoy building relationships with our patients and educating them on how important it is to keep their routine appointments with our expert hygienist. I assist every patient in reserving their appointments and making sure their dental needs are met.

2. Tell us about your work experience in the dental field.

I began my experience working in the dental world at 17 years old. Every day after school, I would take the train from the Bronx to Manhattan to file charts in a periodontal office. From there, I moved on to work with some of the best specialists in New York. I did stray from the dental world for a short period of time to pursue a career in psychology. However, dentistry is something that I’ve known for so long; working with Dr. Ford has helped me discover my passion for it again.

3. How do you assist Dr. Ford and her team in creating amazing smiles for each patient?

It’s important to be supportive of your entire team. We are here to support Dr. Ford’s vision as a Phoenix dentist, and we all share her vision for optimal dental care.

4. Why do you enjoy working at Dr. Ford’s office?

Dr. Ford is compassionate. She is very aware of each individual’s needs. I admire the way she has built relationships with her patients over the years.

5. What makes Dr. Ford a standout employer, and how does that impact patient care?

Dr. Ford has invested in the education of each one of her employees. She has taken all of us to several seminars and courses, and she makes sure that her office is state-of-the-art. She’s always there to lend a listening ear and encourages you every step of the way. Of course, all of the training and technology are great for patient care. Her team are not the only ones who love coming to the office and benefit from Dr. Ford’s investment.

“Every Phoenix dentist knows that a large part of keeping clients on the road of good oral health relates to making sure they are seen at the dentist’s office regularly, and Lizette is a crucial part of that process for us,” says. Dr. Ford.
