Jessica Carrera

Dental Assistant

Jessica Carrera

Bio: My name is Jessica Carrera and I have been a dental assistant for over 15 years. I enjoy educating our patients about treatments recommended by our doctors and addressing questions or concerns they may have, as well as reviewing many ways they can maintain a healthy smile. I became interested in the dental field after having dental treatment performed by my aunt, who is a dentist in the Dominican Republic. As a dental assistant, one of the aspects I love about my position is working with my hands to fabricate temporary restorations. I also enjoy the makeover process and helping our patients achieve a smile they will love. During my time out of the office, I love spending time with my family and as a hobby, I like to journal and make papercrafts.
