Dental Assistants

Our assistants make the clinical doctor visit possible. Dr. Emmi, Dr. Graham or Dr. Tachanco says “without my chair-side assistants, my job would be near impossible to complete with precision and efficiency.” Our clinical assistant staff is trained well and is always looking for ways to better serve our patients.

Meet Paris

Paris - Dental Assistant
“I first decided I wanted to explore the dental field during my high school rotation at Howard Vo-Tech.  I really enjoyed the idea of working with patients daily and potentially changing the confidence people have in themselves by correcting their smile. This reason is why I chose to pursue dental assisting as my technical shop for the duration of high school.  I started my first dental assisting job during my co-op senior year. After graduation I moved on to a pediatric office and it was at that point that I fell in love with dentistry. I decided to branch out and transition into adult dentistry and that is when I found Smile Solutions. I am so proud of the work Dr. Emmi and the associates at Smile Solutions do on a daily basis. They do exactly what I’ve always wanted to be a part of, changing lives one smile at a time!  In my free time I enjoy spending time with my two sons going on boy mom adventures. I also like to travel and spend time with my family and friends!”

“I’ve been working at the practice for almost 38 years and I’m proud to be recognized as the longest-standing employee of Smile Solutions! I work with a talented, accommodating, and passionate team that always strives to put the patient first. I look forward to getting to know new patients, as well as learning about how the families of our longer-term patients are developing, and sharing some of the same about me, with them. Dr. Emmi successfully built an office environment that’s engaging and accommodating for our patients all while creating a great place to work for employees. Working at Smile Solutions has been a truly rewarding experience for me.”

Meet Juan

Juan - Dental Assistant
“¡Hola a todos! My name is Juan, I was born in Mexico, and raised in little ol’ Delaware basically all my life. I’m fluent in Spanish and English. I’ve been in the field for about six years now and I just keep falling more and more in love with it, especially when you’re working side by side with great clinical staff! I’ve been a part of the Smile Solutions family for three years now and I LOVE IT! Thank you Dr. Emmi for being a great dentist and a great person overall. Everyone is so caring and loving here – we’re one big dental family. I love taking care of all the patients we see and getting to know them on a personal level. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to work in a field where I can continue to grow and feel like I’m making a difference in someone’s life.”

Meet Natalie

“Growing up I always enjoyed taking the trip to the dentist office with my family for my routine 6-month checkup. I have always had pleasant experiences and felt comfortable at the dentist. These experiences helped me make the decision about going into the dental field. I attended Delcastle Technical High School where I chose Dental Assisting as my shop. From there I gained experience at my first dental job at an oral surgeon’s office. After high school I decided I wanted more of a variety with procedures I assisted and that a general dental office would be a better fit for me. That is when I found Smile Solutions by Emmi Dental Associates. Now, as Dr. Emmi’s assistant I am able to assist on many interesting and challenging cases like full mouth reconstruction, implants, and traditional “drill and fill” procedures. Watching people transform their smiles is extremely rewarding and I love seeing a patient’s reaction when they see their new smile for the first time.”

“A smile is the first thing I have always noticed on a person before anything else. I love seeing people happy and confident be able to laugh and smile effortlessly. This is the reason why I decided to become part of the team that helps keep people smiling confidently! In my free time I love playing with my puppy Mamas and hanging with my nephews.”

Meet Maddie 

“I decided to go into dentistry during my vo-tech high school rotation. I really liked the idea of becoming part of the team that keeps people smiling beautiful smiles. I found Smile Solutions during my senior year for my co-op position. I fell in love with the office. The staff, the patients and the overall vibes have helped me decide to continue pursuing my career as a dental assistant with Smile Solutions and Dr. Emmi. In my free time I like to hang out with friends and family!”
