Meet Mysti, she’s a dental assistant at Mad River Family Dental. She assists Dr. Hickey in his procedures and provides first-class care by listening and fulfilling the patient’s needs. Her interest in dentistry came from the opportunities to job-shadow her many relatives already working in the dental field. Mysti strives to relieve patients’ dental anxiety and help them learn to love their smile. But Mysti’s favorite part of her job is building genuine connections with the families in the Dayton and Springfield communities. Her driving motivation is keeping the patients’ best interests as a top priority. When she’s not working, Mysti enjoys spending time outdoors.
