DENTAL ASSISTANT--Registered in WA state, Full Time M-Th

Madrona Family Dental is a modern dental office dedicated to providing world-class patient care in a personal, neighborly setting. Dr Tarr has assembled a team of professionals who take pride in the very important role they play in making sure that each patient is understood, respected, and well cared-for. Each team member has a unique set of skills particular to their position as well as a solid understanding of how interdependent we all are and how important it is that we are constantly looking for ways to help each other in order for operations to run smoothly. Dr Tarr values and respects his team and he trusts their ability to manage themselves and each other. We acknowledge each other when we are doing well, and when we falter, we figure out a plan for how to do better.

Dr. Tarr received his dental degree from the Ohio State University College of Dentistry. Prior to embarking on a career in dentistry he studied philosophy as an undergraduate at Amherst College and went on to earn a Master of Fine Arts degree from Indiana University. In his practice of dentistry Dr. Tarr combines his passion for science, for using his hands to craft things of beauty, and for helping people achieve their overall health goals. He opened the doors to Madrona Family Dental in 2003 at which time he operated out of two chairs with one dental assistant and one front office person. Today he has three, amazing full-time hygienists, a patient care coordinator (who used to be his assistant) a financial coordinator, and two full time dental assistants--one of these positions currently being open as a beloved team member is moving out-of-state.

Dr Tarr and the Madrona Family Dental team are looking for a dental assistant who loves taking great care of patients. We are looking for someone with exceptional clinical skills, but most importantly we are looking for someone with an upbeat, can-do attitude who communicates impeccably. We get juiced when a busy day draws to a close and we know that we took great care of each and every patient because we communicated well, worked efficiently, and had fun doing it!
