Emilie, Dental Assistant
“After graduating from Rochester Community and Technical College, I joined Dr. Calcagno’s practice as certified and licensed dental assistant in August of 2016. Seeing the level of care and attention that is put forth for each individual patient, I knew instantly this was the team I wanted to be a part of. My favorite part of every day is getting to meet new patients and seeing our returning patients. I sincerely enjoy being able to build a relationship with everyone that walks through the door, so they feel comfortable seeing a familiar face when they return. I also love and enjoy how Dr. Calcagno’s practice is very up-to-date with the latest dental technology and how they are always striving to provide the best possible care. In my spare time, I am always trying to spend as much time as I can with family. If I’m not with my family, you can usually find me adventuring outdoors.”
