Sara Bender, Dr. Kerbs’ dental assistant and treatment coordinator, graduated with her RDA in 2003. Sara’s mother inspired her to be a dental assistant at a young age. Her mother worked for Dr. Kerbs in 2001. She remembers her mom coming home after her first day at Dr. Kerbs office and announcing to her family: “I found our new dentist, we are all going to him from now on.” From then on Sara started coming to Dr. Kerbs office, and upon meeting Dr. Kerbs and Renee she started looking at dentistry in a new light. She had never experienced a dental visit like the one at Dr. Kerbs' office. After going to dental assisting school and graduating, she knew where she wanted to work, and as soon as a position was available she started working for Dr. Kerbs.
Dr. Kerbs has provided an opportunity for Sara to grow in her field through numerous continuing education classes. Sara has grown in her knowledge of dentistry and is inspired by Dr. Kerbs every day.
