JEN GREEN, RDA

I'VE WORKED IN DENTISTRY SINCE I GRADUATED FROM DENTAL ASSISTING SCHOOL IN 1994. AFTER A FEW YEARS AT A GENERAL PRACTICE IN MY HOMETOWN OF MODESTO, I LEFT FOR SAN FRANCISCO HAPPY TO SCORE A JOB AT THE OFFICE OF A CO-FOUNDER OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF COSMETIC DENTISTRY AND A TRUE PIONEER IN COMPREHENSIVE DENTISTRY. IT WAS HERE THAT I LEARNED ABOUT DENTAL PHOTOGRAPHY, MOUNTING MODELS ON PRECISION ARTICULATORS, THE MICRO AND MACRO ESTHETICS OF SMILE DESIGN, AS WELL AS HOW TO CONSIDER OCCLUSAL ISSUES AND OTHER RISK FACTORS PRIOR TO TREATMENT PLANNING. MY FIVE YEARS OF GUEST SERVICE EXPERIENCE WITH THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY HELPED TO GIVE ME THE GIFT OF GAB WITH REGARD TO TREATMENT ACCEPTANCE. I LOVE TALKING WITH PATIENTS AND THAT COMES ACROSS IN THE WAY I COMMUNICATE WITH THEM TO IMPROVE THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF THE RECOMMENDED TREATMENT. I EVEN WROTE A LITTLE HANDBOOK FOR DENTAL ASSISTANTS TO HELP THEM LEARN THESE SKILLS TOO:

VOLUME 1: TREATMENT ACCEPTANCE

HAVING ACQUIRED SUCH VALUABLE SKILLS OVER THE YEARS SPENT LEARNING FROM MY MENTORS IN COMPREHENSIVE DENTISTRY, I NOW WORK TO PASS THESE SKILLS ALONG TO MY FELLOW DENTAL PROFESSIONALS IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA AND BEYOND. I'VE WORKED WITH DENTISTS ALL OVER NORTH AMERICA AND HAVE EVEN HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TEACH AT THE UCLA DEPARTMENT OF CONTINUING DENTAL EDUCATION AS WELL AS AT THE INTERNATIONAL DENTIST PROGRAM AT UCSF SCHOOL OF DENTISTRY.


I'M PRESENTLY WORKING INDEPENDENTLY AS A CONSULTANT AND COACH TO DENTAL TEAMS TO BETTER THEIR CLINICAL SKILLS AS WELL AS IMPROVE THEIR RATE OF TREATMENT ACCEPTANCE. I'M A DENTAL BOARD OF CALIFORNIA CONTINUING EDUCATION REGISTERED PROVIDER, A CERTIFIED CPR INSTRUCTOR AND I SERVE ON THE DENTAL ASSISTING PROGRAM ADVISORY BOARD FOR CARRINGTON COLLEGE.
I'M ALSO A CERTIFIED APPLICATIONS TRAINER FOR DEXIS, GENDEX AND INSTRUMENTARIUM-SOREDEX, PROVIDING HANDS-ON INSTRUCTION ON THE HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE FOR ALL 2D AND 3D IMAGING SYSTEMS. I LOVE WORKING WITH DENTAL TEAMS IN ALL ASPECTS OF DENTISTRY AND MAKING LEARNING FUN IS ONE OF MY SPECIALTIES!
