I’m happy to introduce you to Guinevere Juckett, someone I consider a dental assisting superhero.
Guinevere, or Guin as her friends call her, started her dental career in 1990 as an on-the-job-trained dental assistant, and she’s had a passion for dentistry ever since. She is a graduate of the expanded function dental auxiliary (EFDA) program at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and a registered EFDA in Ohio.
Guin is also a certified dental assistant, certified preventive function dental assistant, certified restorative function dental assistant, and certified in dental infection prevention and control through the Dental Assistant National Board (DANB). She is trained in CAD/CAM dentistry and has achieved both levels 1 and 2 CEREC design assistant certificates through the Great Lakes Education Center in Detroit.
Guin has completed her clinical fellowship through the American Dental Assistants Association (ADAA). She believes strongly in infection control and holds a certificate in dental infection prevention and control from OSAP and the Dental Advancement through Learning and Education (DALE) Foundation. She is a member of the ADAA, American Association of Dental Office Management AADOM, Ohio EFDA Association, and the Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP). Guin is president-elect for the DALE Foundation, an independent affiliate of the Dental Assisting National Board.
Guin works for a private dental practice in Middlefield, Ohio, as an EFDA, and has been the practice’s acting office manager since 2005. She has been with the same practice for more than 20 years. When she isn’t working, Guin enjoys country life with her two labs, Roxy and Ruby. She loves people and being a dental assistant, which for her is about giving back. Her heart is truly in helping others, and the dental assisting profession is her calling. Guinevere Juckett is one of the standout people who serves this profession with pride and professionalism. Knowing Guin, she’s only just begun!
