For many people, going to the dentist can be a frightening and uncomfortable experience. Luckily, our friendly and talented staff of dental assistants will assure that you will be comfortable and well-taken care of in a relaxed environment. We recently sat down with one of our dental assistants, Crystal, to learn a little more about her and her role at Boger Dental.

What is your role at Boger Dental? Dental Assistant
How long have you worked at Boger Dental? 8 years
What's playing in your car right now? BTS—we are being honest here. They are great way to start the work week.
What inspired you to work in the dental industry? I have always been interested in teeth to the point where I decided to leave a four year private college within the first week to pursue the career at a technical program. I have never looked back.
What can we find you doing on the weekends/favorite hobbies? My weekends consist of enjoying time with my daughter and husband, planning outings to wear her out so we can all nap throughout the day. I also enjoy baking, making cards or scrapbooking, or a video game or two.
Tell us something that might surprise us about you. I cannot stand the taste of coffee. The smell is amazing but I cannot do it.
What is your favorite part about working at Boger Dental? The people. Who you work with is your second family. You spend a LOT of time with them. I cannot express how much I enjoy working with the team.
What can we find you eating for lunch today? Goldfish. Nah—I have grown up now, mostly carrots and pretzels. Switched one snack food for another.
Who would you most like to meet and why? Kate Middleton—or Duchess Catherine. She is a role model for what elegance should be in this insane world. Plus I would love to meet her in her role as a mother, perhaps get some pointers?
She can bring the children too—I need to set George up with my little one.
Where is your favorite vacation spot? I am a homebody so I would say my own bed. If there has to be a destination it would be Alaska. You realize how small you are when there is nothing but wilderness and solitude surrounding you.
What book are you currently reading/TV show you’re currently watching? It’s hard to get any of that in now because of a little destructive being that I adore but I still find time. I am an avid reader so I bring a book wherever I go. I am reading Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare (who is BRILLIANT—recommend ANY of her work). TV shows are harder to watch but I am very eccentric with my choices. Right now it’s The Crown but I am trying to find time to watch Attack on Titan—I am falling behind!
What’s the most interesting or unique job you’ve had prior to working at Boger Dental? I had many jobs in the food industry. But I would say Dairy Queen in high school not only because of the many stories that I can still laugh at today but because that is where I met my husband. Who knew blizzards would bring two people together?
