Congratulations Anna Wright for being nominated as Grace Health’s December Communicate with H.E.A.R.T. Spotlight Recipient! Each month Grace Health selects a staff member, nominated by their co-workers, who exemplifies what it means to Communicate with H.E.A.R.T.
What does Communicate with H.E.A.R.T. mean to Anna? For me, Communicate with H.E.A.R.T. means to always show kindness and compassion. It means treating everyone as if they’re a member of my family. It means listening to the patients, asking questions and advocating for them. One of my biggest missions daily as a dental assistant is to make sure my patients leave feeling better than they did coming in. Many people have dental anxiety or special needs making it very difficult for them to come see us. I always keep that in mind. Sometimes, they just don’t understand the process of what we are doing and simply explaining it step by step puts them at ease. I truly love helping people. For me, nothing beats public healthcare.
What does Anna like about Grace Health? Working at Grace Health has truly been one of the best experiences. I love my dental department. We have all like family and have so much fun while we work. It’s one of the most rewarding jobs I’ve ever had.
