6-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moinet Thursday, July 27, 1967 WHAT ARE THEY DOING? Also earlier this summer Barb learned how to make impressions the hard way. Her mold for one patient's false teeth was a little on the inexperienced side, but, as they say, "correct practice makes perfect" and Barb is now correctly practicing. Miss Knudsen was quite active in many high school happenings and has spent most of her time sewing, reading, swimming and dancing while off work this 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 "impressions" aren't only created by Barb's friendly tact, but also through her skill in routine dental practices such as bridge work 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. Strohman and Mrs. Thelma Will taught her the basics. Mrs. Will was the office assistant during the school year, but Barb is presently filling in very capably as the doctor's only summertime aid. Miss Knudsen's day at the office begins at 7:45 when she readies the premises for patient number one by sterilizing instruments, fixing charts, and updating the records. All first-time patients (usually children) are treated to a combination phonograph-color slide sequence concerned with dental hygiene. This provides the initial relaxation needed by the child for proper treatment. This screen has proved quite bene- summer. Barb will be leaving for school Aupst 29. She would like to major in elementary education at Luther College in Decorah. She thinks fifth or sixth grade would provide the proper challenge. We congratulate Barb on her present employment and wish her the best of luck with her future occupation. jilllllllllllllilllllllliiiiilliiillliiilllllllllllltllllllllllllllilillllllllllllllllllllllllllllllliillllllllllllllllllll ficial 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 bank 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 bank. The figures shaping the bank 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 of her job are relatively simple, she has to admit that keeping the books can get her down if things don't balance out. However, she undoubtedly shares this dilemna with many other bookkeepers. As for the easiest portion of her day, Barb tells us that cleaning up the office presents no problems whatsoever. The dentist's office is spotless. Earlier this summer Barb took time out from her regular "nursing" duties and addressed some 200 cards and envelopes for Dr. Strohman, who is the secretary of the North Central District Dental Society.
