After working in the medical field for 6 years, Joan made one of her best career choices to work in dentistry, where she’s been assisting as a Registered Dental Assistant for almost 3 ½ years.  The daily interaction she has with patients when they come in with their dental concerns and joy she sees when they leave with a smile on their face always brings a rewarding feeling and sense of making a difference.  In fact, her passion for the dental profession has motivated her to look into advanced dental certifications and beyond.  Working at Dr. Eshom’s office, it’s instantly apparent that the patient is first and foremost. She believes the atmosphere and staff are amazing and Dr’s are top notch.
