Jacqui King Dental Assistant
Dental Assistant Jacqui King is all about helping people look and feel their best. Previously a cosmetologist, Jacqui discovered Dental Assisting when looking for a new career that would allow her to continue helping people gain confidence, while also providing her with the flexibility she needed as a mother of two then-young children. Shortly after beginning her Dental Assisting training, she knew the dental field—and the hands-on, clinical environment—was a perfect fit for her.
Since joining the staff at Lexington Periodontal Group in 2015, Jacqui has had the pleasure of working with numerous patients from all walks of life. “Everyone’s story is so different,” says Jacqui. “The Dental Assistant is the first person a patient interacts with on the clinical side of the staff, and I feel as though we really make a difference in a patient’s experience at the practice.” Jacqui especially enjoys when she can set a patient’s mind at ease about the procedure they will undergo, and help them to relax in the chair.
Jacqui is incredibly active, and loves to get out and move! She particularly enjoys hiking and doing yoga. She is always glad to get together with her large family in her free time, including her three adult children and four grandchildren.
