Sarah is one of our new team members at Olson Orthodontics! We are glad to have her join us. Below is a little bit of information all about SARAH!
What led you to your current role?
I worked for 2 years at a general dentist office, before finally deciding it wasn't for me. I knew I wanted to stay in some type of healthcare profession so that I'd be able to help people. So, I figured hey! why not braces!? That's when I stepped into the orthodontic field about a year ago.
Where are you from? If not O’Fallon what brought you here?
I was born and raised in good Ol' Belle-Vegas!
Did you have braces? For how long? Did you have clear or colored rubber bands? Head gear? Did you really use the floss threaders like you’re supposed to?
Lucky for me, I not only got to enjoy the luxury of braces just once, but TWICE! I first had braces in high school for about 2 years. I used both clear and colored elastics depending on my mood, what I was doing, and where I was going. I absolutely hated floss threaders. After throwing away my retainers in the trash a few different times, I gave up on the idea. Fast forward to my second year of being in the dental field, I noticed how my teeth had shifted, and I became very picky and understanding about the importance of straight teeth, retainers, and oral health. That's when I decided on round two of braces!
What job could you never do?
Embalmer. Sewage Person. Surgeon.
If Olson Orthodontics didn’t exist and you needed a totally different career, what would be another dream job?
Doggy Daycare/Pet Sitter, stay at home mom-preneur
What’s the last book you read? Movie you watched?
