Dr. Amanda del Cueto
1) What are your proficient skills?
Patient management and communication, patient education, preventative dentistry, composite fillings, composite veneers, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, implant restorations
2) How do they interact with patients?
Dr. D has an open line of communication with all of her patients. She takes the time to get to know the patient behind the smile and find a connection with each person in her chair. She encourages her patients to be open and honest to gain their trust and considers their visit a success if she can make them laugh!
3) What procedures do you love to do?
I love to do any treatment that can transform a patient’s smile. From composite bondings and veneers to porcelain makeovers, I love to make patients’ dream smiles a reality!
4) What procedures would you like to do more of?
I could never do enough smile makeovers!
5) Why dentistry has a special impact on your heart?
I love that dentistry has started a movement to educate patients about the effect oral health has on their systemic health. It’s a good day to save a smile for a patient, but it’s a priceless day to save a life!
6) What are your ideal patients?
Our ideal patient has a proactive approach to their dental care. We love to see patients who are enthusiastic about tackling treatment in the early stages to prevent more involved, more expensive treatment and potential pain and emergencies.
7) What (humbly) sets you apart from other colleagues?
I believe I have a natural ability to connect with patients on a personal level. She believes no treatment should ever be started until there is complete trust in the doctor-patient relationship, and without that, even the most beautiful smile would not feel like a success.
Dr. Angela Rasmussen
1) What are my proficient skills?
All aspects of restorative dentistry. With 40 plus years of practice under my belt, along with all the great advances in dentistry throughout those years (I’m a lifelong student, always learning new things), I pride myself on being very proficient in what I do.
2) How I interact with patients
First and foremost, I listen to and get to know the person I’m meeting, before they become a “patient”. I want to know their story, goals, fears and concerns. After a comprehensive clinical exam and record taking, I’ll formulate a personalized treatment program. Then I will collaborate with my patient, and we work together as a team.
3) What procedures do I love to do?
I so enjoy providing beautiful smiles for my patients. That can involve tooth movement, tissue procedures and several restorative options, such as whitening, bonding, veneers, crowns and implants. When I not only meet, but exceed my patient’s expectations, the rewards are priceless. That’s why I love it!
4) What procedures do I want to do more of?
Honestly, more of the above. It’s a win-win and truly rewarding!
5) Why dentistry has a special impact on my heart?
Winston Churchill once said “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give” When you’ve worked hard and been blessed to be able to change a person’s life in a positive way, through their smile, as I’ve had the privilege of doing for 40 years, it’s part of my heart. Always will be.
6) Who is my ideal patient?
The ideal patient would be someone who appreciates the efforts of our office and team, understands the idea of real health and wellness and is committed to achieving their goals. We also share mutual trust and respect.
7) What humbly sets me apart from my colleagues?
I have been a full-time dentist for over 40 years, 39 of those years, here at Gentle Dentistry, which I established in 1984. With that kind of longevity comes experience and wisdom and many, many blessings! It’s rare to find a track record like this in any industry today. And one of the treasured rewards from that longevity are the long-term relationships with my patients that I’ve had the honor and privilege to know and serve.
