Hi! My name is Stephanie Beal. I’m a dental assistant here at Alliance Dental Group in Mooresville, and if you’ve seen me at the office before, it won’t surprise you to hear me say, “I love my job.” Going into the dental field was a natural choice for me since dentistry was so life-changing for me. Here’s the short version of my story: I had braces for three years, and I went from being insecure about my teeth and my smile to feeling confident and able to engage with people and conversations. It’s almost like my personality did a 180-degree flip. My own experience instilled in me a desire to help people find confidence and connection through their smile. When I’m not at work, I head outdoors every chance I get. I enjoy hiking, boating, biking, and many other outdoor activities.
