How would you like to join our team?

My name is Carol Scharnikow, I discovered my passion for dentistry when I was in high school. I was trained in the dental office on the job after school. I continued my education after high school while working as dental assistant. Then, while working at the U of W Dental School teaching dental students how to work effectively and efficiently with dental staff I developed a second passion for education. I thoroughly enjoy sharing my knowledge of dentistry and helping others achieve oral health.

Developing a lifetime career in dentistry and education I have had amazing opportunities to meet and work with many fantastic people. I will share some of them in class to demonstrate specific concepts of dentistry and work ethics. If you have a desire to help others and care about people and their health this may be your ticket to a successful productive career.
Please come and visit for an interview in the spring by seeing your high school counselor for an appointment to visit our beautiful state of the art dental clinic and classroom. I look forward to meeting you.
