Moni is a dental assistant. She went into the dental field because she wanted to help patients feel confident about their smiles. A graduate of North Alabama Dental Assisting Program, Moni loves her job and is motivated to come to work every day because it gives her an opportunity to make a real difference in someone’s life. One thing she finds particularly satisfying is when they are seating a crown that looks natural and perfect with the patient’s smile. When Moni is not working, she loves to exercise and spend time with her husband and daughter.
