Monterey, CA, August 12, 2014 – Angie Cornwell, RDA, has joined Dr. Jeanette Kern and her dental care team as the Clinical Care Coordinator. Cornwell assists Dr. Kern with oral surgeries and the placement of dental prosthetics. She also coordinates across team functions to ensure the highest level of care is provided to each Kern dental patient.
Cornwell is a graduate of Monterey Peninsula College where she earned her degree in Dental Assisting. She has completed post-graduate clinical education focused on occlusion (how teeth fit together) and 3D bite scanning.
Cornwell’s continuing education allows her to support Dr. Kern in the creation of dental care plans for people with compromised oral function, problems chewing, or excess wear of the teeth. Each patient is interviewed by Cornwell as part of the health history intake process. Getting to know each person who receives dental care in the practice is Cornwell’s favorite part of her role.
“Having a conversation about health with each patient I care for allows me to get to know our patients as individuals,” says Cornwell. “My job is about a lot more than dentistry; it is about understanding our patient friends, their unique needs for care and how their smiles fit their lifestyles. It is the getting to know people and then blending their personal needs and preferences with clinical care that continually excites me about my work.”
On July 24th, Cornwell attended the Monterey Peninsula Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards dinner with Dr. Kern and her care team. The office of Jeanette Kern, DDS was a 2014 Monterey Peninsula Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards Finalist in the healthcare category.
Dr. Jeanette Kern is an award-winning dentist whose recognitions include Outstanding Woman in Monterey County by the Monterey County Commission on the Status of Women, Business Excellence Award from the Monterey Peninsula Chamber of Commerce and Woman of the Year from the Professional Women’s Network.
Dr. Kern completed postdoctoral training with world-renowned dental instructors at the Rosenthal Institute at New York University and the Pacific Aesthetic Continuum at University of the Pacific. Prior to becoming a dentist, Dr. Kern worked as a dental hygienist and taught Hygiene at UCLA and USC. She graduated at the top of her class from the School of Dentistry at UCLA.
Dr. Kern is committed to continuing education and always utilizes the latest techniques to make treatment comfortable for her patients.
