Dental Assistant*

at SCL Health in Topeka, Kansas, United States

Job Description

You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Dental Assistant. 
Your compassion is tangible: patients feel it in the hand they hold. Families feel it in your prayers. Colleagues feel it in your support. 
You know when to move quickly. When to sit quietly. When to laugh loudly. 
You're great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible. 
SCL Health Marian Dental Clinic is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. With locations throughout Colorado, Kansas and Montana, we offer a wide variety of primary and specialty care services. 
Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, we've launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning. 
Together we'll align mission and careers, values and workplace. We'll encourage joy and take pride in our integrity. 
We'll laugh at each other's jokes (even the bad ones). We'll hello and high five. We'll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing. 
We're proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn. 
Your day.

 Work collaboratively as a team member to ensure the dental clinic operates efficiently.

 Accurately document patient treatment.
 Effectively communicate with fellow team members.
 May be required to float to other departments (within scope of competency and qualifications) based on business need.
Your experience.

 High School Diploma or equivalent, required
 Current BLS certification endorsed by the American Heart Association, required
 Experience working in a safety net dental clinic or public health agency, preferred
 Bilingual proficiency in English and Spanish, preferred
Your next move. 
Now that you know more about being a Dental Assistant on our team we hope you'll join us. At SCL Health you'll reaffirm every day how much you love this work, and why you were called to it in the first place.
