Dakota is originally from Arlington Texas, but grew up in Evergreen, CO. She has now been back in Texas (and the Texas heat) for almost 2 years. She graduated from the Dallas Dental Assistant School in 2019, but has been a Dental Assistant for nearly 5 years in Maui, Hawaii! It must take a pretty amazing job to bring her back from Maui, right? Needless to say, we are very lucky to have Dakota here at Cowdin Cosmetic Dentistry!
Dakota works one-on-one with Dr. Cowdin every day as her Dental Assistant. Not only does she assist with every procedure, take x-rays, make temporary teeth and whitening trays, but she keeps things running smoothly so Dr. Cowdin can focus on the task at hand. Which is simply a task that is indispensable!
Dakota says, “that her favorite part about her job is seeing the beginning to end of the process. Cosmetic dentistry is the fun world of dentistry where we have a patient come into the office who may not be super confident in their smile when they arrive, but when they walk out of the office doors with their new teeth and confidence to match- it’s awesome to see.”
Outside of work, Dakota enjoys doing anything crafty. Crocheting, painting and currently teaching herself how to do embroidery! Her dog Lani is her child!
