Refresh is a loyal employer of Ohio Valley College of Technology’s Dental Assisting graduates, stating that “the hands-on experience gained by an OVCT extern is unmatched. Students learn and are prepared to perform with modern radiograph equipment, and current practice management software. We also enjoy that they are given the opportunity to assist chairside for a dentist, a hygienist, or both.” Refresh Dental Office Manager, Lindsay Flesch, feels OVCT dental externs add value to their organization because “OVCT dental externs are enthusiastic to learn their skills. This drive for knowledge makes them an additional asset to our offices and team!” Dr. Petrakos office’s mission is “C.A.R.E”, or, Compassion, Accountability, Relationships, and expertise. However, they also have a strong commitment to integrity in the services they provide. Because of this, many OVCT graduates explore career opportunities with Refresh, particularly at Dr. Petrakos office where they acquire effective and personalized training from Ms. Flesch.
