Orlando Dental Practice Adds New Dental Assistant

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - October 26, 2015) - Overmeyer Family Dental, a comprehensive Orlando dental office, has hired an experienced dental assistant to assist its growing practice.

Jessica George, a dental assistant from Oklahoma, joined the staff as a full-time dental assistant on Oct. 14. George is responsible for working alongside Drs. Jessica Overmeyer and Thomas Overmeyer as they treat patients with preventive, restorative and cosmetic dental issues.

“Jessica is high energy and has a great personality to help patients get totally relaxed mentally for their treatment,” said Dr. Thomas Overmeyer, who operates Overmeyer Family Dental. “She also has years of dental assisting experience and has been able to flow seamlessly into our office procedures.”

Dr. Thomas Overmeyer said the practice began searching for a new dental assistant this fall after seeing an increase in new patients.

A dental assistant works hand-in-hand with dentists, providing access to instruments, crafting crowns and restorations, taking impressing and overseeing the comfort of the patient. Dental assistants also work to educate patients on best oral health practices by giving proper brushing and flossing tips.

"I find that she is a great addition to our staff and has strong social and communication skills," Dr. Thomas Overmeyer said. “Our patients are very comfortable in her hands, and she has a passion for helping others improve their oral health.”

Overmeyer Family Dental, 3221 S. Conway Rd., Ste. C, provides preventive dentistry, affordable cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry for patients 3 years old to 103 years old. Individual services include fillings, extractions, wisdom teeth extractions, root canals, partial dentures, full dentures, mini and standard implants, porcelain veneers, Six Month Smiles, Invisalign, sleep apnea treatments and general dental procedures. The practice provides mouthguards for patients who grind or clench their teeth, as well as the “Silent Nite” anti-snore device.

Dr. Thomas Overmeyer was born in Fort Wayne, Ind., and graduated high school in Ohio in 1974. In 1977, he graduated cum laude from Ohio State University, receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in microbiology in just three years. He then graduated from The Ohio State University School of Dentistry in 1980 and attended a general practice residency program at the Medical College of Ohio at Toledo. After dental school and his residency program, Dr. Thomas Overmeyer moved to Florida and spent seven months as a dental associate before buying his own practice. Dr. Thomas Overmeyer has advanced training in mini and standard implants, Six Month Smiles, Invisalign and LANAP laser gum treatment.

Dr. Jessica Overmeyer, a Florida native, received her Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of Florida, where she also minored in business and Spanish. She also attended The Ohio State University School of Dentistry, graduating in 2014. She joined her father’s practice last year. Dr. Jessica Overmeyer holds certifications in mini dental implants, Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.

Dr. Thomas Overmeyer bought the Orlando dental office that is now Overmeyer Family Dental in June 1982. Overmeyer Family Dental moved to a new office building in February 1984. The 1,500-square-foot facility was recently remodeled and includes six treatment rooms and state-of-the-art dental equipment. Dr. Thomas Overmeyer uses the PerioLase laser to treat periodontal disease, a method he has found to be more effective than traditional gum surgery. He also uses digital X-rays to diagnose and educate patients about oral health issues.
