by Derrick Vander Waal SIOUX CENTER, IOWA – Gabbie Lynch loved going to the dentist as a kid. Yes, it’s true.
Gabbie Lynch’s interest in the dental field began during appointments to the dentist as a child. She now serves as a dental assistant at Promise Community Health Center.
She had a great dentist with great assistants whom she looked up to. And that got her interested in going into the dental field.
Now, as a new dental assistant at Promise Community Health Center in Sioux Center, Gabbie can offer that same level of care to the patients who come into Promise Community Health Center in Sioux Center.
“I previously worked at a pediatric office, and I love working with children,” she said. “Seeing them smile and feel more comfortable in a ‘scary place’ is rewarding enough.”
Gabbie grew up in Sloan, IA, and graduated from Westwood High School in 2015. She earned her dental assistant diploma from Western Iowa Tech Community College in Sioux City in May 2016 and is nitrous certified. She worked at Dunes Dental 4 Kids in Dakota Dunes, SD, for her second session of clinicals earlier this year and during the summer before assuming her position at Promise in August.
“Being a community health center, I felt that Promise had a lot to offer not only for us as employees but the community as well,” she said. “I hope to help more with the children that come in and make them feel comfortable and welcomed. I also hope to be a helping team member.”
Gabbie has been impressed by Promise so far.
“They really care about their patients and the work they do, and they’re all so friendly and welcoming,” she said.
Promise Community Health Center of Sioux Center is the only Federally Qualified Health Center serving the far northwest corner of Iowa. Promise provides medical, prenatal, dental, vision and behavioral health care as its core services. To learn more, visit www.promisechc.org and watch this video.
