Other Info: It is great to be back in Missoula! Four years away at dental school and one year for a residency program helped me to further appreciate my hometown and close-by family. Now, I am ready to settle back in.
My name is Dr. Ellie Pryor and I am writing to see if you or someone you know could use the help of another dentist. I am looking to work in Missoula - or the surrounding area - where I can contribute to practice growth. As a hardworking and highly motivated individual, I am open to working full-time or part-time. I offer up the following paragraphs to highlight my philosophy and relevant experience.
Sometimes patients come in nervous, uncomfortable and in pain and sometimes they come in just for a routine check-up or procedure. Either way, it is my goal to establish a caring long lasting relationships with them. My first priority is to ensure that they are comfortable with me and the work that I am doing for them. I do this by being professional, friendly, knowledgeable and technically competent. While being friendly and professional are relatively easy, knowledge and technical competency are a life-long endeavor. Therefore, having a mentor through my early clinical years is important to me.
Thus far, I gained knowledge and technical competency by participating in our school clinic, an AEGD residency program, CE courses and working in a pediatric clinic. These experiences gave me a broad exposure to socioeconomic backgrounds and age groups. And, all the while, I improved upon routine and more complex procedures including: pediatric dentistry, CAD/CAM technology, placement and restoration of implants, administration of IV sedation, and comprehensive treatment planning. As my career continues, I look forward to improving my technical skills and committing myself to dental excellence by consistently pursuing continuing education. I am eager to get to work and I believe I would make a great addition to your practice. Thank you.
