Cassie Dresser - Instructor
I graduated from Apollo college dental assisting program in 1996. I am originally from Southern California and moved to Albany, Oregon in 1993 with my husband Jim. As well as being an instructor for Practical Dental Assisting of Oregon I also work full time at a dental practice in West Salem that I have been with since 1996.
I have great enthusiasm for advanced design techniques and state-of-the-art procedures now being done and offered in the dental field. It's exciting to be part of dentistry at this time when patients are benefiting the most that I have seen in my past 14 years of assisting. I continue to advance my education with CE courses on practicing "Tomorrow's Dentistry Today". I am so excited to be able to share my knowledge and experience with students.
My hobbies consist of my husband of almost 17 years and my beautiful daughter who is currently in high school. She keeps us both busy with all of her school activities. She is our pride and joy.
