SOMETIMES, WE’RE GUILTY OF ASSUMING TOO MUCH, RIGHT? We recently realized that we’ve probably wrongly assumed that ALL of you—our valued patients—know Ally as well as we do! That’s probably not the case.
Ally’s real name is Ashley. But, Gorczyca Orthodontics already had an Ashley, one of the most popular names! So, Gorczyca Orthodontics decided they would call her by her nickname “Ally!”
So, We Asked Ally A Few Questions
Those questions are found below—along with her candid answers! Enjoy!
Where are you originally from?
“I am originally from Richmond, California. When I was 15 years old, my family moved to Suisun, not far from Fairfield, and Antioch, California, on the Sacramento River Delta. Recently, I moved to Antioch to be closer to my Dad.”
What made you decide that you wanted to become a dental assistant?
“When I was a Junior in High School, my marketing class had a field trip to Heald College in Concord, California. At this college, I learned about the career option of becoming a dental assistant. After graduating from Pinole Valley High School, I attended Blake Austin College in Vacaville, California and received my education in dental assisting.”
When you started as a dental assistant was there something funny that happened? Do you dare tell us that story?
“Years ago, when I started working for the very first time on the first day, I nervously grabbed the air water syringe. I accidentally pressed water instead of air and sprayed the doctor! He laughed knowing how nervous I was. Things have been great ever since!”
How did you come to work at Gorczyca Orthodontics?
“My stepmother was an orthodontic patient at Gorczyca Orthodontics. She told me that Gorcyzca Orthodontics had a great team, the doctor was really nice, and she thought that I would do really well at Gorczyca Orthodontics. I visited Gorczyca Orthodontics in 2014 but they did not have a job opening then. When they recently did have a job opening, Gorczyca Orthodontics called me back. It’s funny how things work out in life!
What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?
“When I am not at work, I love spending time with my family. My favorite thing to do is to have a cook-out including dancing, singing, karaoke, laughing, and watching old family videos. Most of my family is originally from Lake Charles, Louisiana. My grandparents moved to California in the early 1960’s when my grandfather was in the service.”
What do you enjoy most about being a dental assistant?
“What I love most about working at Gorczyca Orthodontics is transforming smiles. It is a confidence builder for our patients to receive a beautiful orthodontic result. It make me feel like I’ve really made a difference in the life of our patients to be part of the orthodontic treatment result that they receive.”
We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know Ally a little better. Here at Gorczyca Orthodontics we feel really fortunate to have her as a member of our awesome team.
