Wayne Nobel | Certified Dental Assistant
From: Woodstock, GA
Been with Fountain View since 1994
To identify with the great admiration everyone has for this man, you have to appreciate a line out of Shakespeare – “What’s in a name?” An evaluation of Wayne and Noble gives us the true meaning of his wonderful character. Wayne is an American Indian, whose name carries the meaning “hard worker,” which could not be more appropriate. Every member of our team reveres Wayne as the most dedicated, hard-working person to have ever crossed his or her path. Wayne never ceases to amaze this team with the devotion he displays for his patients, the practice, his coworkers, and Dr. Harden. Noble or “Sir Noble” as he is often referred by Dr. Harden, gives some insight to his generous and virtuous disposition.
Wayne had an illustrious career in the United States Air Force, where he was given Presidential assignments, worked at the White House, and traveled extensively. During his time in the military, Wayne developed a skilled electrical background, which has proven priceless for many quality improvements in our practice.
Since joining our team, Wayne has achieved his Certified Dental Assistant degree, and he has quickly become a highly technical assistant, as trained by Dr. Harden. He takes digital X-rays, assists in root canal therapy using the latest technology, and performs comprehensive restorative dentistry that often involves the use of dental implants. Committed to modern dentistry, he attends all implant seminars with Dr. Harden. His creativity and ingenuity led him to revolutionize a concept with the manufacturing of a new device that delivers computer-controlled anesthesia.
When the office is closed, Wayne can still be found at Fountain View Dentistry making sure all the fountains stay running, as well as facilitating all other repairs needed to keep our practice in pristine condition. Wayne finds enjoyment in all aspects of his career at Fountain View Family Dentistry.
