Certified Dental Assistant, Expanded Functions Dental Assistant
Kathy had an opportunity to choose a second career and to our benefit, she chose dental assisting! She is a 2007 Honors graduate of the Dental Assisting program at Bradford School.
“What I love about dental assisting and especially working in Dr. DiSanti’s office, is the transformation I see in people. Many people come in scared of the dentist and of the procedures they have to get done; but after they spend some time with us, meet the doctors and experience our office, we gain their trust and they get comfortable with us- it’s really cool to be a part of that.”
Kathy resides in Moon Township with her husband, Jason and daughters, Amanda and Amber. When not working, you’ll find her in the kitchen, reading a good book, or enjoying the great outdoors!
