Dr. Karen Lederer
It’s in my nature to want to achieve the best possible results for my patients—it has been since my first career as a Registered Nurse. I learned a lot about myself during that time, like how I thrive in team-oriented settings and when I do something, I like to make sure it’s done right the first time.
I decided to get into dentistry so I could channel my desire to help people and get back to patient-focused care. I was able to take what I learned in my years as a nurse, like the importance of building rapport and taking my time with patients, and bring that into my dental profession so I can ensure my patients truly feel cared for.
To me, there is artistry in dentistry. I love making every smile its own masterpiece. At the same time, I am supportive of functionality too, so my patients get the best of both worlds.
Yes Dental is built on the belief that every patient should be presented with options for their care so they can make informed decisions and feel comfortable knowing they are in control of their dental health.
Receptionist and Treatment Co-ordinator
I’ve known Dr.Lederer since our boys were little. One day, in a pinch, she asked me to come and help out at her clinic, and I agreed, never thinking it would turn into more. That was 12 years ago. In between now and then I actually entered retirement, until more recently, when I found myself working here once again as part of the YES Dental team.
There’s something about YES Dental that keeps calling me back, and I think it’s because our team is second to none. Our team shares the same vision and goals. We work together seamlessly and always treat our patients with respect, kindness, and honesty. We know we’re responsible for meeting the patient’s health needs, and we keep this close to our hearts.
I love how working at YES Dental has allowed me to assist different generations in the same family. Families continue to visit us as they grow through life’s many milestones, and this is a testament to our success in how we make our patients feel. We truly care about our patients and we love what we do.
Life can be stressful, and sometimes the best thing we can do is take a breath and listen to one another. YES Dental puts this into practice, which is one of the many reasons I’ve said “yes” to working at YES Dental (twice). I’m a loyal supporter of this business and our patients, and I’m proud to be part of this team.
Receptionist and Treatment Co-ordinator
Many of the patients who visit YES Dental are greeted by my face first, and that’s a big deal to me. I need to make sure our patients have a great experience from their first interaction in our clinic, so I always welcome them with the warm, genuine service every patient deserves. As a whole, our team makes it a priority to put our patients at ease and make them feel comfortable.
I’ve been in the dental industry for over 23 years, but what stands out to me about YES Dental is just how phenomenal our patients are. I love connecting with our patients and making them smile. I’ve had the pleasure of living in many different places and I’ve been exposed to so many different types of people. No matter where I go or what I do, kindness always takes precedence for me. This is a big part of who I am, and I carry this value into my daily work.
I love being a part of a team that shares in each other’s successes, personally and professionally. We are a consistent and reliable group of people who genuinely care for our patients and each other. Our patients put their trust in us, and we truly value that. I look forward to greeting you on your next visit to YES Dental.
Registered Dental Hygienist
At YES Dental, I help patients improve the health and look of their smiles. My work suits me perfectly because it has elements of communication and relationship building, both of which I consider my strengths. I want our patients to look and feel their best when they walk out of their appointment, and I strive to ensure our patients feel cared for every step of the way.
The YES Dental team is great at working together towards our common goals. We’re never on our own here, and we always have one another to rely on if needed. The great qualities of our team members and the strong relationships we share are clear for patients to see, and I think that contributes to how at ease they feel in our clinic. Our patients know we work together looking out for their best interests.
This is what elevates the service at YES Dental: We’re a small business that sincerely cares about one another and the work we do. It’s why I am always striving to do better, not just for myself but also for our patients. Come experience our unified, caring approach at YES Dental.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I always knew I would work in health care, and I decided to pursue dental hygiene because I wanted the opportunity to build relationships with my patients. I relate to our patients a lot, and putting them at ease comes naturally to me. Being able to chat with patients and seeing different generations of the same family is meaningful to me. I love hearing about their latest milestones, travel plans, and anything else they want to share with me.
To me, health care is about caring for the whole person. This is an approach we’re proud to take here at YES Dental. Everyone on this team is not only a fantastic person, but they’re also very competent and skilled in their work. Between our amazing team and incredible patients, we always seem to maintain positive energy here.
Your oral health is a big part of your overall health, and our patients deserve access to the care they need. I love watching patients walk away from their cleaning feeling confident, and being a part of this positive moment makes me feel accomplished in my work.
I know a dental hygiene visit isn’t at the top of people’s desired to-do list, but our patients are pretty excited when leaving with clean, healthy teeth. I hope to see you soon for your next cleaning.
Certified Dental Assistant, Level II
I’ve been working at YES Dental for several years as a Certified Dental Assistant, and I love what I do here. Patients most often see me working as Dr. Lederer’s right hand, but when I’m not assisting with patients I’m happily pitching in with other team members or helping to clean and maintain the clinic. I believe the environment and atmosphere of the clinic are an important representation of the business, so providing a clean, comfortable space is a priority for me.
I love working in health care, and I believe this type of work brings out my unique strengths. I’m efficient, I’m determined, and I like things to be done the right way—for us and our patients. I enjoy getting to know all of our patients and building relationships with them.
Being a part of such a flexible and dynamic team makes all the difference to me. We work hard together to bring our patients the best experience possible by ensuring a clean, comfortable space and caring, genuine service. I hope you’ll come to see the YES Dental difference for yourself.
