6— Algona (to.) Upper Dss Mr>!nf»j ,Mv '°t>~ ARE THEY BY STEVE WALLER Barb Knudsen is a dental assistant, greeting patients with a pleasant smile and a charming personality five and a half days a week. Since May 29, Barb, who is the daughter of the Robert Knudsens of Algona., has been busy making good "impressions" at Dr. LeRoy Strohman" s office. These "iinpressions" aren't only created by Barb's friendly tact, but also through her skill in routine dental practices such as bridgework and false teeth. She started her summer job as soon as school was out and went directly into a two-week training period in which Dr. Strohmaa and Mrs. Thelrna Will taught her the basics. Mrs. Will was the office assista-it during the Ect&ol year, iw: Barb is presently iilliag is very capably as the doctor's only BuniuierUEe aid. Ill BE Ksudse:;'E day a the o&ce be^lTiS at 7:4: vr.e:; she readies the premises lor patient number o:.e yy sterilizing instruments, £zi2g ci-arts, a:»i - :p- datir^ u,e records. ciJldreiy are treaied :o a cos- facial in handling sometimes "disagreeable" youngsters. About her job, Barb exclaims, "I like it:" She liked it from the very start when the doctor and his assistants honored her with a graduation party after commencement exercises at Algona High School this spring. One "fear" Barb had to overcome was the presence of a noisy little baiik which sits on the counter above Barb's desk. It was hard for her to get used to the clanging reaction when coins were inserted into the charity- centered ban):. The figures shaping the baa}; are a dentist and his patient. When coins are put into it, the patient's tooth is extracted causing a loud "curplunk". But Barb overcame this small phobia. Although most phases oi her job are relatively simple, she has to admit that keeping the books can get he: down ii things don't balance out. However, she undoubtedly shares this dilemrii. will: rr.a::y other lookXetpers. As fc: v.e easifes*. poru'j:. •:'. her it;, Barb tells us that clta:,- i:.g i-'ptht ;Hicep:esfc:.'.E:.';p:i> lerr.E •-•.s.uw.'tr. The dtr.tis^E rfliM is spotless. i4vn: r.~,^s; ,v.
