Sandy Yanes, CDA Since 1972, has found the love for dentistry and making people feel comfortable. To begin her career in the dental profession was when we wore no masks or gloves! Going to the dentist isn’t something most people love, and she found that she enjoyed the challenge of changing their minds. Sandy has always loved meeting people and making them feel comfortable. In 1972, Sandy worked for three different dentists. Eventually, Dr. Chamberlain told her she needed to become a certified dental assistant. He called the School of Dentistry in Chapel Hill and got her into the assistant’s program. Sandy earned her C.D.A. with honors in Orthodontics. For the next 17 years, she worked in Ortho until leaving for Italy, where she took time to home school her three children.
